Google To Launch Its Amazon Echo Show Counterpart

Amazon may have trumped Google with its product launch last week - but Google has the next word: Its own event this week.

For those that want even better sound and more features for controlling internet-connected lighting and appliance inside the home, Amazon also is introducing the Echo Plus, a slightly taller speaker that will sell for $150. It's the odd Echo out in many ways, created to be plugged straight into your phoneline so you can make calls from your other Alexa devices. The device is said to come with a screen the same size as the one found on the Echo Show.

According to eMarketer, a research company, Amazon's Echo devices like the Echo Dot and Echo have outsold the Google Home that features voice control. Amazon also launched Echo Buttons which can be used for gaming sessions by establishing a connection with Amazon Echo speakers. This means you will be able to make video calls, a great option for today's business environment. A new feature, Echo Connect, can connect to your home phone line to turn a smart speaker into a hands-free speakerphone. You simply connect a landline phone jack into the Echo Connect and then wirelessly pair it with an existing Echo device in your home. If you use the Alexa app to sync your phone contacts, you can just call out the name of the person you want to get in touch with, and the Echo system takes care of the rest.

The Echo Spot will be available for $130 and will ship on December 19. The Echo Plus sells for $149.99.

The redesigned and newly-less-expensive $99 Echo has improved audio fidelity, improved second-generation far field voice recognition, a more compact fabric-covered form factor, and interchangeable cosmetic shells.

The new Echo speaker is available for a reduced price - US$99.

It is the least expensive Echo product and is priced at $34.99.

Alexa Gadgets are Echo-branded accessories.

The new Fire TV is Amazon's most affordable 4K-enabled device ever. Amazon also announced a partnership with BMW, which will offer Alexa in a selection of its vehicles from the middle of next year.

The original target launch date of the device was mid-2018, but due to the "Echo Show" there was intense pressure on the company to get it launched in 2017.

Customers will also have access to tens of thousands of Alexa skills from third-party developers like Starbucks, NPR, and TED Talks, among others. It includes a display for visual enhancements of weather and news reports, alarms and more. If you happen to be outside of the U.S., only the United Kingdom and Germany have been slated for availability early next year.
