TribyInvoxia has announced the Amazon Alexa Voice Service (AVS) is now integrated and available on Triby, its family-friendly kitchen device that combines music, messaging and communication functionality in one voice-activated product. Starting today, Triby becomes the first non-Amazon product to be Alexa-enabled.

Triby is designed to be a fun addition to any family, transforming the way they connect with the content and people they love. Triby is a digital assistant, Internet radio, connected speaker, hands-free speakerphone, and connected message board all rolled into one! And now with Alexa, customers have hands-free voice control for information from Wikipedia and the web, weather, timers and alarms, news, shopping/to-do lists, sports updates and scores, smart home features, calendar entries, IFTTT, and much more—with new skills being added every week.

As the first non-Amazon product with a built-in Alexa experience, Triby gives families unprecedented access to new and exciting services. Simply say “Alexa, play Adele” and Triby can play Adele from Prime Music, say “Alexa, add milk to my list” and Triby will add it to your shopping list, or “Alexa, turn off the kitchen lights” and Triby becomes a way to access and control the smart home.

With the Alexa-enabled Triby, users can play music, hear information, get the news, order a ride from Uber, set timers and alarms, control their smart home devices, and much more with just their voice. Along with access to Alexa services, users will also be able to use voice commands to control various aspects of Triby’s multi-functionality in the future, including making calls.

Wake-word detection works even when Triby is operating on batteries, thanks to a dedicated ultra-low power chip. To respect privacy, Triby will not send any audio to the cloud until the “Alexa” wake word is detected. It then alerts the user it is listening with an audio and visual signal, and is immediately ready to carry out the user’s voice command. Customers can also choose to mute the microphone at any time by pressing and holding the push-to-talk button on the right side of the device.

Triby is also a family sound system, ideal for listening to music, podcasts or audio books. Its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connected speaker delivers impressive sound and lets you switch between content from personal devices, streaming services and Internet radio stations.

Triby is all about the bass and the treble, thanks to its In Vivo Acoustic® technology that delivers state-of-the-art sound processing. Two built in speakers and a passive radiator are managed by 3D algorithms that create immersive soundscapes with profound bass and clear treble. Surprisingly powerful for a device designed for the kitchen, Triby is magnetic and mighty, transforming the fridge from an icebox to a boom box.

Through Bluetooth, any personal music device or smartphone can be paired. When connected through Wi-Fi, Triby blasts out music from online radio stations, as well as premium services such as Spotify Connect. Users can pre-set their favorite playlists and radio stations through the app, and access and manage them at the push of a button. Triby’s E-ink screen is always on and displays information about the station, playlist or track they are listening to.

Triby also allows you to make free hands-free VoIP calls or turn their smartphone into a crystal clear speakerphone. Now people can catch up while they wash up from up to 15 feet away. Contacts can be pre-set and managed with Triby through its dedicated iOS app, and only people within the pre-set group can call Triby, which means no unsolicited calls. Because it’s a closed family network, even the youngest of children can make safe calls to loved ones without having to have their own phone.

Playful and kid-friendly, Triby features large simple keys, a robust splash-proof and dirt-proof durable design, and strong magnetic back to attach to fridges and other magnetic objects. Multi-colored rubber protective bumpers are also available to make Triby even more kitchen friendly. Washable and interchangeable, they are sold separately.

Listed priced $199, Triby first became available through Amazon Launchpad, a program that makes it easy for startups to launch, market, and distribute their products to hundreds of millions of Amazon customers across the globe. Triby is available on Amazon at for $169. Protective bumpers are priced $19.
