Getty Images today has announced that its images will now be available as query results on Alexa devices that have screen capability.
“Our premier collection of editorial, creative and archival content is a natural fit for Amazon’s Echo products, bringing best-in-class visuals to Echo users,” said Peter Orlowsky, Senior Vice President of Strategic Development, Getty Images. “We are honored to unite with Echo’s screen-based products and to use our deep library of content to give Alexa her best look yet.”
What’s most interesting is how this is worded in the announcement. Even though the announcement mentions the Echo Show and Echo Dot early on, the statement from Orlowsky may indicate that Amazon has additional screen-based Echo devices coming – possibly in a ramp-up to the 2018 holiday season.
