Let's take a look at some of the new gadgets they announced. It is seen sporting a 7-inch display with touchscreen capabilities, and a reasonably large speaker. The device is available in three colors (white, light gray and charcoal), and will cost $49.99 - the same price Amazon charged for the original Echo Dot.
Amazon has made great progress over the past 18 months, getting automakers to add Alexa support in various ways to their dashboards and infotainment systems. There's not enough time for the Cupertino company to release a new, cheaper version of the smart speaker before the holiday season, so Apple will need to drop the price on the existing Homepod in order to compete.
Echo Input is like an Echo Dot without a speaker, just the microphones. That'll begin offering devices to customers later this year, priced at $29.99.
The redesigned Echo Plus has little in the way of design changes and looks more or less the same as its predecessor. The new model will be available at the same $149.99 as before. You can pre-order it today and it will arrive November 14. That'll largely depend on the audio quality and for that, we'll have to wait and see how the sub performs in symphony with its Echo satellites. The Echo Link, meanwhile, is the receiver (i.e unamplified) version, created to connect to a receiver or amplifier for similar control via the Echo/Alexa ecosystem. "When paired with your Echo device, you can feel the music as it fills the room".
I'd like to introduce you to the AmazonBasics Microwave that brings the simplicity and convenience of voice to a compact countertop microwave.
Pre-orders go live today for $229. The Home Hub device can be controlled by voice in the same way in which products in the family, alongside few controls, can be used by the display screen.
And it's expanded its skillset in relation to streaming services, so you can ask Alexa to follow certain artists, say, and when they have a new album it will notify you. Yet, the Home Mini and Echo Dot can do nearly everything the Homepod can do (and more if you have an Android smartphone). Users will have to plug in an antenna for optimal channel reception. It can record up to four shows and stream to multiple Fire TVs at once. This will make it possible to run a subset of voice commands even when your internet is down - something that should be quite useful to anyone looking to control smart lights and other essential appliances with their voice.
