Tired of talking to Alexa? Now you can start having conversations with Ziggy instead. Amazon has added ‘Ziggy’ as a new wake word for its voice-controlled assistant – joining ‘Alexa’, ‘Amazon’, ‘Echo’, and ‘Computer’. So was Ziggy inspired by David Bowie’s famous alter ego Ziggy Stardust? Is Jeff Bezos a fan of the old Ziggy comic strip? We’re not sure – an Amazon official said ‘Ziggy’ was chosen because “it’s fun and reflects Alexa’s wealth of knowledge on everything from A to Z”. How often do you use Alexa or other voice-controlled assistants? Should you be able to name it yourself?
