Amazon is killing its fashion-oriented Echo Look

Amazon's Echo Look sounded like some kind of late April Fools joke when it landed back in 2017, offering smart "style assistant" functionality via Alexa.

Now it appears the long-running interface experiment is gone for good.

We've organized a huge list with many of the newly added films and some upcoming releases.

New this week: First, the formatting has changed a bit and now descriptions, cast list, and genre are included with all of the recent additions.

Back in May, we highlighted a rumor that League of Legends might come to Android courtesy of Tencent, a company that just so happens to own Riot Games, the developer of LoL.
