Amazon Just Came Out With a Whole New Line of Alexa Devices

Amazon Just Came Out With a Whole New Line of Alexa Devices

The original Amazon Echo was released in 2014 and essentially created an entirely new product category of speaker that you controlled primarily with your voice rather than through a conventional app.

On your way home, the system can remind you to pickup those groceries you forgot the other day (or order them via Amazon for you), and you can even ask your auto to have that new Amazon show your colleagues were talking about downloaded and ready to watch on your Fire TV before your key is even in the front door.

The company also announced a new Fire TV that will make the most of the latest video standards. The new Amazon Echo Plus will work on over 100 smart products out of the box which is a good thing.

For those of you who don't know, the Amazon Echo is a lineup of smart speakers and now a smart alarm clock.

The Echo's popularity prodded Google to introduce its own internet-connected speaker, Home, with a digital assistant a year ago.

All of these new devices build on Amazon's big win of getting the hardware and software scenario just right for Alexa.

It seems that Google is taking another page from Amazon and prepping a smart speaker with a built-in display. Earlier this month, debuted the iPhone 8 line and iPhone X, which are expected be in high demand this holiday season. also is scheduled to release its HomePod speaker in December. That could include things like Duo and Hangouts for video calling or Google Photos which could help drive the device as a virtual picture frame when in standby.

Echo Spot features second generation far-field technology with four microphones, acoustic beam-forming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation so it can hear you from across the room-even while music is playing. The new Amazon Echo Plus is priced at $149. The same is applicable when it comes to #Amazon Echo.

Amazon has the Echo (2nd Generation) up for pre-order now on its website.

Amazon has thought of family interaction through games on the Echo speakers. The Echo Button is a small pressable button with multicolor-lights on top. However, an included 3.5mm jack means that it's perfectly possible to connect the speaker to an external sound system if you want to get your tunes playing. Finally, the Echo Spot is a smaller version of the Echo Show.

The new Fire TV has a square shape structure and looks like a chrome cast.
