Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is sitting at the 206th spot of the most popular websites in the world, but the company’s new move puts it a step closer to its competitor Amazon. The company took to the stage today to unveil the Tmall Genie. Yes, you guessed right – this is Alibaba’s answer to Amazon’s Echo.

Of course, it would be a little awkward using Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant, Alibaba decided to implement their own voice assistant called the AliGenie. As its name rather clearly indicates, the device has the direct ability to order items from Alibaba’s Tmall website. A unique point on offer is that authorised users will be able to confirm orders using their voice thanks to Tmall Genie’s voiceprint recognition. Focusing on the main features, the Tmall Genie has pretty much everything Amazon’s Echo has to offer. The device will allow you to control your smart home, check the weather, catch up on news, listen to music, plus a whole lot more features.

Design wise, the Tmall Genie looks somewhat similar to Amazon Echo. A mini tower cylinder but with a ring at the bottom that glows once the actual device is active, complemented with speaker area sitting above it.

At the current time, the Tmall Genie is rolling out in a limited beta phase for ¥499 – approximately $73.39 – users can sign up on the Tmall Bot website. Customers that have been picked will be alerted around mid-July to complete their purchases, followed by first devices that are expected to ship on the 17th of July.
