From David del Valle in Madrid

In 2019 Orange Spain will launch Djingo, a smart speaker that will enable subscribers to manage their TV service, make calls and control all home connected devices.

Djingo will make its debut in France in the spring and then in Spain later in the year, announced Orange’s executive president Stéphane Richard at an event in Paris. Djingo is the result of an alliance between Orange and Deutsche Telekom that will also integrate Amazon’s Alexa.

With the move, Orange will compete with Movistar which has its own smart speaker Aura.
