Amazon announced a bunch of new products on Wednesday, while it may have failed at the smartphone, it seems to have found incredible success with the Echo.
It more than doubled down on Wednesday with five various Echo hardware products, showing the increasing importance the product has for Amazon, and its attempt to get Echos in as many households and rooms as possible.
Here’s what Amazon introduced:
All-New Echo – the hands-free speaker your readers can control with their voice. Just ask the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, provide instant news and weather updates, and more. This new generation Echo is available in multiple colors and features expertly tuned speaker quality at a significantly reduced price ($99.99).
Echo Plus – everything readers love about Echo with a built-in smart home hub. Starting a smart home or integrating with an existing system is now easier than ever for everyone, thanks to the built-in smart hub and a simple setup for compatible connected devices.
The All-New Fire TV – connects you to a world of entertainment. With a compatible 4K Ultra HD and High Dynamic Range (HDR) TV, users can watch as thousands of movies and shows come to life in brilliant colors and detailed contrast. Plus, the Alexa Voice Remote can easily find, launch, and control content. For a limited time, our readers can get up to $45 in digital content from Amazon Video, Hulu, and Showtime when they register their Fire TV.
Echo Spot – is a smart alarm clock that can make video calls and be connected to external speakers via cable or Bluetooth. This new device seems to be a crossover between the Echo Dot and Echo Show, with a tiny 2.5-inch screen and a more curved edge. You can make video calls as well.
