Amazon also announced tons of improvements to its software and services, too. But it turns out that number was pretty close.

Weighing only 480g, Google Home Hub will also allow access to Google Photos to the users, which can again be viewed through simple voice commands like, "Hey Google, show me my photos from Hawaii".

Amazon appears to have leaked info about two of its new Alexa powered devices on the U.K. Amazon website. That'll largely depend on the audio quality and for that, we'll have to wait and see how the sub performs in symphony with its Echo satellites.

People buy Amazon Echo for the novelty and convenience of talking to their house.

The new Echo Dot is fabric-covered, giving it a less metallic look, and is supposed to be 70 percent louder than the first generation of Amazon's smallest smart speaker.

The Echo Dot: The new Echo Dot will cost $49.95. It will cost $199.99 for the Link and $299.99 for the Link Amp.

The Echo Link is created to connect to a receiver or amplifier, with multiple digital and analog inputs and outputs for compatibility with your existing stereo equipment.

Kicker carousel continues: Vikings sign Dan Bailey after waiving Daniel Carlson
The Vikings can't let any more wins this season rest on the foot and mind of an inexperienced kicker who can't be relied on. You think you got a guy for a while and then he goes out and misses three in a big game. "But things happen, I guess".

For those who want better bass from their sound there's the Echo Sub. They ship later this year.

The 100-watt Echo Sub can be wirelessly paired with one Echo speaker for a 1.1 configuration, or with two of the same Echo speakers for a 2.1 set-up, aiming to bring more brunt to a stereo pair through its down-firing 6in woofer.

Also, and this is probably the most pleasant feature about it, it'll keep accurate time, meaning it'll automatically adjust for Daylight Savings.

A new Echo Show: Ooooh pretty. The $150 price hasn't changed. With the new update, customers will be able to talk to Alexa directly from within the Alexa app on their Android smartphones.

The Amazon Wall Clock.

Echo Wall Clock tells time and can help visualize timers. That means you'll be able to use it to control smart devices that aren't Wi-Fi enabled, such as Philips Hue light bulbs. Apple's relatively closed approach has relegated it to third place as there are far fewer supported devices and they tend to be more expensive than similar options supported by Google and Amazon. It's available next month for the same price, $230. Hulu said in a statement sent to Cord Cutters News. Much like the previous model, though, the new one makes use of the same four-button layout. It connects to your phone via bluetooth. With Alexa onboard, you can tell it to record shows, tune to different channels, or even open a channel guide. It streams to Fire TV, Android, iOS, Echo Show, Sony TV, and Lenovo tablets.

Amazon is also extending Echo to a new place: your auto.
