Facebook's 'Portal' Video Chat Device to Be Announced Next Week

Google Home Hub- MySmartPrice

Alexa Auto functions are now available by invitation only, and Amazon plans to begin shipping Echo Auto devices to invitees later this year.

You can also save 50% on Echo Auto right now, dropping its price to just $24.99 from $50.

A new Echo Show device boasted twice the screen display area as its predecessor, and Fire TV Recast that acts as a digital recorder for traditional television broadcasts. If you've bought an echo Dot, it's in your home - but it's increasingly baked into modern cars, too. However, this marked improvement should see it overcome Google's offering and reclaim the ground that it has lost to the Google Home Mini in the last couple of months.

Echo Input is a new device that can turn any other speaker into an Echo smart speaker device - well, sort of.

The all-new Echo Dot comes with a new louder and crisper sounding speaker and an updated fabric design (charcoal, heather grey, or sandstone). The Echo Dot is priced at $49.99, the Echo Plus at $149.99, the Echo Show at $229.99, and the new Echo Auto for using Amazon Alexa in your vehicle. Though not announced for India yet, this will be made available in the United States in the coming days to select users on an invite basis. If you forget to do something in your routine, Alexa will remind you, either through an Echo speaker or an Android phone.

The new Echo Auto is an all-new smart Echo device for cars.

Amazon's smart home hub has also been given an upgrade, with it becoming bigger and sleeker than before.

That comes from training every day, you've got to show the manager that you want (to play). Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho . Football is a little bit like this.

While the device was once rumored to rely a homegrown voice assistant to handle basic commands, Portal may instead lean on Amazon's Alexa for things like music, recipes, and news briefings.

Amazon unveiled a new gadget called the Smart Plug, which is way cooler than it sounds.

There are reports that Facebook, the social media behemoth, is set to announce its own smart home device next week, called Portal.

With this announcement, Amazon reflects Sonos' renewed commitment to outboard amplifiers and streamers but does so at lower price points.

It's a microwave. This is only interesting for the simple fact that Amazon has finally taken a page from the Book of Obvious and integrated Alexa functionality into that which you use to reheat your leftovers.

Amazon teased a coming feature called Alexa Hunches that is created to infuse the digital assistant with intuition.

Portal will basically use Facebook's AI platform to recognise people in the frame and follow people as they move around the room (which isn't creepy at all) and will also have Amazon's Alexa voice assistant integration.
