Amazon unveils Echo Auto

AmazonBasics' smart Microwave has a button to connect with a nearby Echo. If you want to turn your existing Echo speakers into a nice 2.1 speaker setup, the Echo Sub will help you do that.

When it comes to the smart home, Apple hasn't shown much of late, leaving many unanswered questions around how its HomePod device and Siri voice assistant will compete with Amazon's products. The event marks the largest number of devices and features Amazon has ever launched in a day, and there was certainly a lot to take in. The Echo plus is priced at Rs 14,999. The speaker will most likely go on sale next month. When you activate the system by saying "Alexa, I'm leaving", your speakers can listen for the sound of breaking glass, or the distinct tones of your smoke or carbon-monoxide detectors, and then send out alerts. The speaker can also be paired with other Echo speakers to create stereo sound. The Echo Dot is available in three colours - Charcoal, Heather Gray, and Sandstone. Amazon also announced tons of improvements to its software and services, too. The most affordable out of them is the all-new Echo Dot.

The new Echo Dot will cost £49.99 and has been given an improved speaker, resulting in audio playing up to 70 per cent louder, Amazon said.

It's thought that Amazon's Echo Sub will be released in the USA from 11 October, 2018 onwards, priced at around $99 (€85/£75). The Echo Sub is already for pre-orders in the country and the shipping is said to kick off only in November.

This follows an announcement at an event in Seattle on Thursday cementing the company's commitment of investing in voice assistance space. But if you can't afford a brand new electric vehicle, the Echo Auto is your solution. Amazon says the bass is stronger and the sound is clearer on the Echo Plus.

Unlike the Echo and Echo Dot, which are audio-based, the Echo Show features a display, greatly expanding its functionality. The company announced that the product will be very efficient in all its functions. This device mounts to the dashboard and allows you to integrate Alexa into your vehicle. The Echo Show will come to India only early next year. And it will include Skype compatibility for video calls (!).

The Fire TV Recast is a DVR that brings your favorite live TV content to your Fire TV, Echo Show, Fire Tablet, and compatible mobile devices. The company has also introduced new ways for third-party developers to develop skills for Amazon Alexa. The Echo Input comes packed with a microphone which connects a speaker to Alexa.
