Amazon launched their new Echo speaker in the market yesterday with a futuristic spherical design and new features borrowed from the Echo Studio and Echo Plus. It also revealed a globe-shaped version of the budget Echo Dot. Normally, you’d pay full price to get all-new devices, but Amazon is given pre-orders of the Echo at a discount from the get-go.
All that you have to do is that you have to buy two if you get two Echos, you’ll get $30 off and pay $170 instead of $200. For the Echo Dot, you’ll spend $80 instead of $100 for two Echo Dots, for a $20 discount.
It has also gained all of the smart hub features from the Echo Plus, alongside support for Amazon’s Sidewalk smart home tech. It can automatically tune itself to deliver the best sound quality for your space.
Meanwhile, the Echo Dot has also had a spherical design and costs $50, or half the price of the Echo. If you’ve been looking to get a couple of Echos to spread around the home and are attracted to the latest design, they’re now available to pre-order.
Amazon has added machine learning smarts that’ll let the Echo model neural speech recognition so it can understand you better.
