There are millions of customers with more than one Alexa-enabled device in their home, and for these customers one of the most important features we’ve built is Echo Spatial Perception (ESP). The ESP feature provides a frustration-free experience by identifying the best device to respond when interacting with Alexa in a multi-device environment. The technology determines which device is closest to the customer, and helps Alexa respond through that device.… Today we’re announcing that ESP has moved to the cloud, introducing several benefits to developers. With Cloud ESP, all existing and new Alexa-enabled devices get the ESP feature with no requirement for device-side software changes. Cloud ESP also offers superior accuracy – even in noisy environments – and because Alexa is always getting smarter, the feature will continue to improve over time.

Benefit for the customer: third party devices will tie in with Echo devices.
