Details of the forthcoming Alexa (and G Home?) controls are scant.

What I've seen suggests a fairly restricted set of commands, eg. select
a player, play a Tunein station, volume control, mute, etc.  

I imagine a system with voice control for radio, and limited music
playback, would be a boon for visually-impaired users.

Details on Google Home are also few and far between, but it seems likely
it will be based on the existing chromecast tech..  Alexa Echo/Dot only
offers bluetooth functions.
