Multitasking is about to get a whole lot easier at one of Sin City's most famous hotels.
The Wynn Las Vegas recently announced that it planned to equip each of its 4,748 rooms with the Amazon Echo, a hands-free speaker users control with only their voice.
The rollout began in December with the installation of Echo devices in suites. Once the devices are installed, guests will be able to control a variety of features in their rooms, including adjusting the lighting and temperature, by issuing voice commands to Alexa.
The hotel said Alexa would be fully operational in all rooms by summer.
At first, guests will be able to easily control lights, room temperature, drapes, and the television. Down the road, the Wynn Las Vegas plans to introduce features including personal-assistant functions.
"As we have moved through the years, technology has always played an important part in our resorts," Wynn Resorts chairman and CEO Steve Wynn said in a statement. "The thing that Amazon has done with Alexa is quite perfect. If I have ever seen anything in my 49 years of developing resorts that has made our job of delivering a perfect experience to our guests easier and help us get to another level, it is Alexa."
Wynn described Echo as "effortlessly convenient."
Although guests should be thrilled about the new amenity, it might be only the second-most exciting announcement Wynn Resorts has made this year. In the spring, it said it planned to expand its Las Vegas resort known as Wynn Paradise Park to include a 38-acre lagoon with a beach, n island, and boardwalk.
