JAM Enters the Amazon Alexa Foray with the JAM Voice Portable Speaker
It wasn’t that long ago when Amazon introduced Alexa, their voice assistant platform, to the world. Now with over 3 million Alexa-enabled products in use in the U.S. alone, and growing by the day, you knew it wouldn’t be long before other brands jumped on the Alexa A.I. bandwagon. About a month ago, the folks at JAM Audio announced their first Alexa-based smart product, the JAM Voice portable speaker.
According to John Mikkola, Director of Product Development, “Since the inception of JAM Audio, our mission has been to provide consumers with high-quality products that utilize the latest technologies at significantly lower prices. Our latest offering, JAM Voice™, provides everyone a chance to enjoy the convenience of a virtual assistant, making daily life tasks easier.”
The Jam Voice portable speaker with Amazon Alexa has the following features:
• Microphone Button
• Play/Pause Button
• Volume Down/Previous Track Button
• Volume Up/Next Track Button
• Reset Button
• Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Mode Selector

After downloading and logging into the JAM WiFi and Amazon Alexa apps to your mobile phone or tablet, you’ll be able to ask Alexa a question, play music from Amazon library, and stream music from Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora. The JAM WiFi app also allows you to play music on multiple JAM Voice speakers. The JAM Voice™ even can act as an intercom to other connected speakers, create alarms and timers, and control certain smart home products.
