Amazon Echo Auto brings Alexa to your old car

Echo Auto is now only available for pre-order by innovation. I'm going to warn you right now, before you go any further: You're probably either going to feel like this is all nonsense or that you want every item on the list - either way, here they are! For example the Echo Auto requires an invite to purchase.

But Amazon does have a different approach; its solution is not to release a single Echo Max or similar that's an all-in-one device. If you've bought an echo Dot, it's in your home - but it's increasingly baked into modern cars, too.

Echo Plus now features a fabric exterior and more rounded edges.

Amazon's Echo Dot is one way to get into voice-controlled music playback for a song and, for some, finding their Dad grumbling about the good old days of physical formats and infrared remotes.

Rumors have been flying about since the middle of 2017 that Facebook is building a smart speaker with a large touchscreen to rival Amazon's Echo Show. The whole family's in the mix! Called Portal (either internally or officially), this is expected to "function similarly" to an Amazon Echo Show, down to the integration of the e-commerce giant's Alexa voice assistant.

Alexa Guard can send you alerts with audio clips when specific sounds are detected, for instance, and you can choose to forward those alerts to your security provider. With no speaker drivers to cover, it lacks the cloth speaker grille found on other Echo devices.

Alexa, More Popcorn, Please! Amazon Launches Voice Controlled Microwave

They're a significant departure from the other Echo devices in terms of design, with plain, black, blocky chassis instead of rounded, cloth-covered profiles. This subwoofer will be shipped starting on October 11th, and is for sale now for approximately $130 Dollars. Oh, no. You'll soon be able to buy a wall clock that can receive Alexa commands. That's a $180 discount off what they'd cost on their own.

When Alexa is told "corn on the cob", a digital Echo speaker starts an AmazonBasics microwave oven in a faux home demonstration room, setting the preferred time and voicing what it is doing.

And you thought Amazon's crafty consumerism ended with the microwave.

The FireTV Recast doesn't look like a whole lot - it's basically a black box.

The all-new Echo Show is a new design with an upgraded speaker and a bigger 10-inch HD display. This device can access Hulu, Amazon Music, and Spotify. The market researcher says about 12 million smart speakers like the Amazon Echo shipped in the April through June period. Some of it is interesting; some of it is just an update of the same smart home gear you already have. Amazon's Smart Plug simply, er, plugs into any existing outlet and connects to a Wi-Fi network.
