  • The Echo Sub is expected to launch today

Here Are Top 7 Best Features That Just Came To Your iPhone In iOS 12! It connects to the Echo device via Bluetooth. The new model features a new speaker which claims to be sound louder and richer. If you buy this with two compatible speakers, you can save up to 25 percent.

Inc. unveiled a new $50 Echo Dot with an improved speaker, one of the first devices unveiled in a product show created to keep pushing smarthome gadgets during the busy holiday shopping season. The Amp starts at $300 - and will only ship in 2019.

At its event today, Amazon announced that it's rolling out new features for FreeTime - a service that is oriented towards children and parents. The device ($50) is still small but the new driver (1.6 inches instead of 1.1) makes it a more viable speaker in its own right when it comes to sound quality and power. Just like your existing microwave, there will be presets, but here, Alexa will handle the heavy lifting. The Echo Input is basically like the Echo Dot without the speaker. It is coming later this year for US$34.99.

The new 2-generation Echo Show sports a more attractively design form factor than its predecessor and features a larger 10-inch display and improved sound. You've got it. Want a custom Alexa for your dang auto? A smart home hub is not required, and you can use the Alexa app or other Alexa-enabled devices to control it.

One thing that Echo speakers lack is the bass. So, when you pair an Echo or Echo Plus together, the Echo Sub will fill out the low end, making your music sound much fuller.

Smart plugs are already an established idea in the smart home space. Pretty similar to Echo Plus, it can serve as the hub to a smart home. Once set up, ask Alexa to turn on the lights or use the touch-screen to turn devices on and off.

Mr Limp said its Alexa assistant had learned "tens of thousands of things" in the previous year, and also announced new features to make it more knowledgeable, opinionated, conversational and conscientious. In India, the Echo Show will be available only next year. And it added a "Smart Plug" product to help ease setup of these and other devices, which can be a major pain point for shoppers new to using "smart home" technology.
