Amazon announced several new devices that work with the digital assistant Alexa. Here we tell you how to order them in pre-sale before they arrive later this year.
Since launching the original Amazon Echo in 2014, Amazon has slowly set up a product line powered by digital assistant Alexa. Recently, for example, he added a smaller and cheaper Echo Dot, an Echo Show with a touch screen, the Echo Look that helps with your selection of clothes and the Dash Wand that assists you in your super purchases. He also added Alexa to the Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick, in addition to their Fire tablets.
This September 27 Amazon did the same and announced several more devices with Alexa.
If the past is a precedent, these devices will run out fast. If you want one, we tell you how you can be one of the first to buy them in pre-sale.
For the first time in nearly three years, Amazon updated its smart Echo speaker. With a price tag of $ 100, the new version is more affordable than the original. But it is also a bit smaller and comes in six different finishes: charcoal, gray, wood (oak), sand, silver and walnut.
The new Echo has better sound with Dolby processing. Although it is smaller, it sounds stronger and now has a dedicated bass tweeter.
The new Echo can be purchased in pre-sale from September 27 and will hit the market on October 31. Fabric finishes (coal, gray and sand) cost US $ 100, while walnut, silver and oak cost US $ 120. If you buy three, Amazon will give you a discount of US $ 50 on your order.
If you’re still a fan of the original Echo, do not fear. Amazon did not remove it from its portfolio. Instead, he now calls him Echo Plus, and reduced the price from $ 180 to $ 150. Something new is that it has better speakers and Dolby sound processing, plus an integrated intelligent home theater.
Echo Plus orders in advance begin Sept. 27 and the device will be available Oct. 31. For a limited time, Amazon is including a Philips Hue smart bulb.
The Echo Spot is the new favorite of the line of horns with Alexa of Amazon. It’s a slightly smaller Echo Show, or an Echo Dot with a circular display – the fair middle between these two devices. And it costs US $ 130.
It has watch faces that can be customized and you can also watch videos on your screen, make video calls or check your smart security cameras.
The Echo Spot comes in two colors, white or black, and can already be purchased in advance in the United States from September 27; reaches the market on December 19.
