The new Echo Dot has a price tag of Rs 4,499 in India. The Echo Show is priced at $230 and is slated to ship in October. With no speaker drivers to cover, it lacks the cloth speaker grille found on other Echo devices. The Echo Dot is available in Charcoal, Heather Gray, and Sandstone, letting customers to easily mix and match. So it can activate Alexa routines according to a room's temperature. Pre-order for the Echo Sub is available now, with the other products available later this year or the beginning of next year.

And, you if want an Echo with a viewable screen, the refreshed Echo Show now offers better sound and a 10-inch display.

In the month of August, Amazon and Microsoft both of them has also announced their partnership that is aimed to closely to integrate with both the Alexa and Cortana to take on Apple's Siri and Google Assistant which is one of their competitors in this field. With Amazon taking an early lead in this space, it could open up a massive new revenue channel for the company going forward.

David Limp, Amazon's senior vice president of devices and services, who introduced the new gadgets in Seattle, said the company has made setting up the gadgets easier and has improved Alexa's understanding of context.

The microwave works in function with any nearby Echo. Echo Sub is specially created to be paired with Echo devices so that the users can experience a much better sound giving a feel of a surround sound system. The device includes an eight-microphone array designed for in-car acoustics and speech recognition technology. You can ask it to play songs, call contacts or shut off some smart appliance you left on at home. Six inches in size and 100W in power, the Echo Sub will cost Rs 12,990 in India. There is the kind of creepy Drop-in functionality, the Echo Connect, for landlines and even support for calling most numbers in the US, Mexico and Canada.

Amazon seems to be pretty serious about sound systems now. Using the Alexa app, the subwoofer can be connected to either one or two compatible Echo speakers. The Echo Link Amp comes with a built-in amplifier while the former does not.

Has Amazon been taking meetings with Jack Donaghy?

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

The Alexa Guard is another new product. It is now available on preorder at a price of $24.99. A couple things are simply new versions of devices, and others are brand new, top to bottom.
