Razer is a name well known in IT circles, whether it’s for their high-end gaming hardware, peripherals or accessories. They deliver consistently high-quality hardware and user experience every single time.
One of their more recent additions to that user experience is Synapse 3, a cloud-based control centre for your hardware for tight control and customisation for everything from button mapping to RGB light controls.
Now this integration has been taken a leap forward with Alexa integration.
The future of gaming is no longer imagined—the integration of Razer devices with Amazon Voice Service lets you tap on Amazon Alexa to manage all your Razer gear, including smart lighting like Philips Hue and Nanoleaf, along with third party Razer Chroma™ connected devices.
The integration appears to be very tightly woven into the Synapse system, allowing users to customise setups – including lighting – for individual games or situations such as streaming. The list of equipment already supported is pretty extensive as well. There will undoubtedly be more to come in the future, perhaps even Google Assistant integration.
If you’re a user of Razer equipment, is this type of integration enough to entice you to buy into Amazon Alexa?
