It is priced at $100 and there is also three pack which brings the cost down by 50%.
"Amazon Music customers already know and love Alexa from listening on Echo devices", stated Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music. Even with the smaller form factor, the second-gen Echo packs a dedicated bass tweeter. That decision was taken as the device didn't support the Amazon Prime service. Users belonged to the United States, the United Kingdom, Austria and Germany can have an access to this feature by just hitting the button called Alexa available throughout the application. Further, music companies are interested in the categorization and tagging of songs, which in turn will lay out data to make voice-activated applications more responsive. Case in point: Amazon's Fire TV never received an official YouTube app, and is instead using a web-based implementation.
It's a safe guess that Amazon could be announcing a proper second version of its flagship Amazon Echo speaker, which hasn't gotten a significant upgrade since its introduction in 2014.
You can pre-order the Echo Connect from Amazon, and it should ship in December. They can be customized for doing a certain objective of work on Amazon Alexa.
The Echo Spot will be available this December for $130. As the smart home industry grows, our houses will have multiple interweaving products from different companies that will need to work with, not against, one another. It has a built-in touchscreen display allowing it to stream videos online or display some visual information which is otherwise possible with the previous Echo units or other smart speakers in general.
The Verge, a technology news website, earlier reported the news.
Inside the device you'll find a 1.5GHz quad core processor, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of local storage.
Amazon says the new Fire TV is fully compatible with both 4K and HDR content, and Dolby Atmos audio is also supported.
It would be interesting to see if the two come to terms anytime soon.
