Amazon now has Echo Auto, an Alexa assistant for your vehicle


Other than the 7-inch touch display the smart Home Hub will be able to connect to 2.4 and 5GHz networks for high-performance streaming

As we all as the AmazonBasics microwave oven (Alexa, cook my dinner!) which will cost just US$60 there's an Echo Wall Clock, a multi-room speaker amp so Amazon can try to start cutting Sonos' lunch, a smart plug so you can use Alexa with nearly any device in your home that uses electricity and the Ring Stick Up cam - an indoor/outdoor security camera with 1080p video, night vision, motion detection and IPX5 water resistance. Highlights include the Echo Auto, the Alexa Guard, and an AmazonBasics Microwave that includes an Alexa Connect Kit.

That wasn't far off, as it turns out.

Amazon's hugely popular Echo Dot has got a refresh the update announced at the company's big September keynote in Seattle. This is Google's rival to the Amazon Echo Show, and looks like it will behave similar to Google's other Smart Display devices by adding a visual layer onto the Assistant. We already had an inkling about the Alexa-enabled microwave, as rumors about it surfaced earlier this week, and images of various Echo devices leaked yesterday.

The new Echo Show has been redesigned with a smaller size but larger display.

Google Home Hub Features A 7-inch Touch Display; Comes With Google Assistant

Echo Link Amp and Echo Link will be available later this year at $299 and $199. These two receivers (one with its own amplifier) provide multiple audio inputs and outputs, plus Ethernet. They cost $200, and $300, respectively. Once the initial setup is complete, Amazon says drivers will simply need to start their vehicle and the Echo Auto will be ready to respond "within just a few seconds". You've got it. Want a custom Alexa for your dang vehicle? It ships next month.

The smart plug wasn't mentioned in the previous leak about Amazon's plans for new Alexa-powered devices. That'll begin offering devices to customers later this year, priced at $29.99.

The Stick Up Cam can be used both indoors and out and can integrate with Ring Alarm when used inside the house.

Just like other Google Home devices, the Home Hub will only work when connected to a wall switch judging by the power cable at the back. The main screen display depict as a tablet computer shows you a relevant information such as weather, traffic, upcoming commute date and time, with a space to see more cards. For comparison purposes, the 8-inch Lenovo Smart Display is now the cheapest one for only $199 while its 10-inch JBL Link View with stereo speaker is available for $249. It will cost $230. This is due to the new fabric-based look.
