Nick Schwab, a dedicated Alexa user (at least judging from his Twitter bio and feed), spotted this upcoming integration in his Amazon Android app.

Amazon quietly acquired a company named Graphiq in May to help make Amazon's voice assistant Alexa smarter, the Los Angeles Times said on Wednesday.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is coming to Amazon Alexa. There's a dedicated Alexa app on both of those operating systems, but only iOS has Alexa built into the main Amazon app. We've reached out to Amazon for confirmation and will update this post when we hear back.

Alexa is primarily accessed through Amazon's Echo products, but she has also made her way onto other devices over past months. They will be able to ask it about the weather, news, and more. You'll be able to use Alexa through the shopping app, doing much of what Alexa can do through an Echo. In the meantime, you can check out the Alexa app if you want to check Amazon's voice assistant out. Alexa on Android can also perform various skills, like launch the Netflix app and order you Starbucks.

Tom Frazer, from Comedy Central owner Viacom, said: 'We're consistently exploring new ways to engage and entertain our audiences and, following a successful roll-out in the United States, we're excited to be working with Amazon's innovative voice service in the United Kingdom'.
