Hulu Is Coming To The Amazon Echo Show

Google Home Hub Smart Display Speaker

Earlier today, Amazon announced a slew of new products centering around its popular Echo devices like the Echo Dot.

The Seattle company on Thursday made a bid to capture the attention of audiophiles, launching a slate of new Echo devices created to play music or link with speakers that customers already own.

The Echo Plus is getting an update, too, complete with an updated design that decks it out in fabric. It also features a temperature sensor, so it can trigger routines based on your home's climate. You can tell an Echo to add time to the microwave, or ask it to stop.

Amazon has unveiled a range of new Echo smart home devices and introduced a smart plug that enables users to control any power socket using their voice.

The new touchscreen Echo Show comes with a built-in smart-home hub, a feature previously only found in the Echo Plus.

"There are dual, side-firing 2-inch Neodymium drivers; a passive bass radiator; and Dolby processing to deliver expansive stereo sound with deep, powerful lows and crisp highs, ideal for listening to your favorite music", Amazon said. The redesigned, yet identically-named Amazon Echo Show is ready for pre-order today at the same $230 (£220) price, and will start shipping next month. Amazon Echo smart speakers may have led dominance in the category, but rival brands like Google and Apple joining the race has threatened Amazon's supremacy in the race. This device can be paired with an Echo or Echo Plus device, or if you have two Echo or Echo Plus models, you can get stereo 2.1 sound.

Amazon could drop 8 new Alexa-powered devices, including a microwave

Did I put pressure on him? Zimmer, though, has a pretty impressive quarterback of his own. News reports indicate the Vikings hope to sign ex-Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey.

Still, the market for voice-activated speakers pales in comparison with smartphones, where most people interact, according to Strategy Analytics. At the moment, Amazon's commitment to a broad array of hardware, albeit one that is still limited here, as well as working with third parties makes them the leader of the pack - for now.

In our review of the original Echo Plus from a year ago, we liked that the device is better and cheaper than the original Echo.

The 12.5cm-tall Input simply connects to an existing speaker via a 3.5mm jack or Bluetooth to gift it voice functionality.

A connected microwave and wall clock, which can also be controlled using Alexa, were also announced. No more pulling the clock off the wall and taking a cloud of dust to the face, winding the clock as clumsily as possible, and struggling to hang it back on a nail you can't see.

Amazon also launched new features for the company's personal assistant, Alexa.
