Every Awesome and Ridiculous Thing Amazon Unveiled Today

Amazon Echo Dot

It's thought that Amazon's Echo Sub will be released in the U.S. from 11 October, 2018 onwards, priced at around $99 (€85/£75). Additionally, it sports a new fabric-covered design - a design, it should be noted, that makes it look a lot like Google's Home Mini smart speaker.

Microsoft and Amazon announced the latest piece of their year-plus-old partnership on September 20, 2018, the day Amazon unveiled a bevy of new connected devices. If you still want a full-sized Echo though the Echo Plus ($150) also got an upgrade with better sound, voice control without Wi-Fi, and a temperature sensor for, say, turning on fans when it's hot. The Echo Sub will set you back by Rs 12,999.

Unlike the Dot this gadget doesn't feature an in-built speaker with users simply attaching this device to an existing speaker via Bluetooth or the 3.5mm headphone port.

The most expensive of the flagship smart speakers at £319, but HomePod does come with the biggest and best audio system with its seven tweeters, each with their own amplifier. It will launch later this year. One can connect the Sub with any other Echo device to create a 1.1 or 2.1 pairing for a stereo sound effect.

Amazon have made a subwoofer, and it could be available as early as next month.

Next is the Echo Link. A small black rectangular device with microphones, it mounts on top of the dashboard. The Echo Auto connects over an aux port or Bluetooth, and can undertake location-specific tasks. It will use a new "Real Time OS" from Amazon and you connect it to your phone, so you can use navigation via Google Maps. It will still cost $50 when it arrives in October.

Numerous devices are now available for pre-order and will begin shipping in October. The Show is integrated with Hulu and NBC for live and on demand watching, and music video platform Vevo for music videos.

The new Echo Dot is staying the same price as the original at just $79, with three colour options: Heather, Sandstone and Charcoal available to choose from.

"We are focused on making Fire TV an easy way to watch all the entertainment you love, whether it's through streaming video services, cable and satellite providers, or even local broadcast stations", said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Amazon Fire TV. So if you're leaving home you can have Alexa set off a number of things, like locking a door and playing your podcast.

The e-commerce giant also announced the Echo Wall Clock, which will be compatible with any Echo device. It ships later this year. It now features a fabric covering and a rounded shape.

The last great hope for electronics manufactures is smart home assistants.

The retailer says that the new Echo Dot is 70% louder than the previous model. If you plan on getting the Echo Show, you'll be pleased to know that it comes with a built-in web browser that can be opened by using the commands " Alexa, open Silk" or " Alexa, open Firefox".
