It turns off lights and also lets you order the Amazon Echo Dot with a simple request.

Alexa is  grubbing itself deeper and deeper into each lives and giving quick and easy access not only to Spotify and the Amazon store, but also to the bank accounts and the to do lists. And it has actually extended its reach of usability that has resulted into the increase in vulnerability.
