Amazon to create voice controlled microwave, clock

Amazon Smart Plug

"The Echo Auto is a relatively small - it measures 3.3" x 1.9" x 0.5" (85 mm x 47 mm x 13.28 mm) - and weighs just 1.6 oz (45 grams). Instead, they are supposed to work with other Echo speakers or Alexa input devices around the home. Having a Prime membership can also save you monthly on an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription. Echo Dot and Echo Plus will start shipping next months, while Echo Sub will be available later this year.

For those already in the Echo eco-system, the Echo Sub is a companion device aimed at improving the sound of your smart speaker setup in your home by adding rich bass to music playing back through your Echo devices.

"We are focused on making Fire TV an easy way to watch all the entertainment you love, whether it's through streaming video services, cable and satellite providers, or even local broadcast stations", said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Amazon Fire TV. Amazon says the bass is stronger and the sound is clearer on the Echo Plus. However, will there be a listening ear to this wall clock too?!?!?

An invitation-only device for now, Echo Auto is a small dashboard-mounted hub which brings Alexa and voice commands to any vehicle. And it will include Skype compatibility for video calls (!).

To incentivize the launch of the sub, Amazon India is offering a 25% discount when you pick up two Echo or Echo Plus speakers along with the Echo Sub. You get the idea.

You expect to hear about new smart speakers, displays and software at an Amazon media event. Neither device has mics to listen to Alexa commands and depend upon the Alexa app on your phone or other Echo devices on the network.

The idea here is that Amazon will show you information as opposed to mere telling you it, with news, weather, a shopping list, and more found here, and it's a touchscreen as well.

Research firm eMarketer has said that 40.7 million people in the United States will use Echo devices this year, up more than 31 percent from 2017.

Joining its newly announced Echo audio products, third-generation Dot, and Smart Plug comes another major Amazon product: the new Echo Show. The new Echo Sub is a subwoofer set that you can connect with your existing Echo device to create a room-filling audio experience.

Getting in there before Google releases the rumoured Home Hub, Amazon has updated the Echo Show, upgrading its looks considerably in favour of a minimalist design.
