Amazon's comprehensive lineup of new Echo Devices shows it isn't ready to lose ground to new entrants like Alphabet and Apple.

New Echo is a complete redesign of the original Echo. That way, you'll be able to use a simpler command like "Alexa, turn on the lights" when you enter the kitchen, instead of "Alexa, turn on the kitchen overhead lamp".

The device features a 2.5in dedicated woofer speaker and a 6in Dolby tweeter. The new Echo comes in a variety of colors, including Charcoal Fabric, Heather Gray Fabric, Sandstone Fabric, Oak Finish, Walnut Finish and Silver Finish. The new Fire TV costs just $69.99 compared to the $179 that the Apple TV 4K is priced at. And if you'd like a set of Echoes to link together for whole-home sound, right now you can buy three for just $249. In home lighting, more than 70% of Amazon Echo and Google Home owners with smart lighting in their home, report purchasing the system after owning an Echo or Home device.

Since its launch, Amazon's Echo family of smart-speaker devices has quickly risen in popularity.

Again, Alexa - using the $149 (roughly Rs. 9,800) Echo Plus - could make smart home set-up as easy as, screwing in a light bulb. This device requires one of the other Echo devices to work. You can buy Echo Spot for $129.99, and it will start shipping in the U.S. in December.

Amazon's Echo Plus is now available for pre-order for $150 with a Philips Hue smart lightbulb included while supplies last. Rs 8,500) and it will be available in white and black colour options.

The 2nd generation of Echo speaker has a brand new design - a more stylish one in our opinion that suits home better.

The far-field tech used by Amazon Echo and Echo Plus to detect words has been enhanced with better wake word processing, improved beamforming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation, enabling your Echo to detect words from across the room even in a noisy environment.

The Amazon Echo Show is priced at £200 for the UK.

In addition to the standard Echo features, this petite model has a round, 2.5-inch screen for playing anything from Amazon Video and a built-in camera for making video calls.

The Echo Spot is a more compact riff on the Echo Show, the video-enabled Echo that debuted earlier this year.

The Spot's primary objective is to act as a smart alarm clock right at your bedside.

They also both support HDR - high dynamic range - playback, too. If your home media center is in need of an upgrade, it's a gadget you definitely want to check out. That gives the Fire TV a premium set of features for a budget-friendly cost. That makes it more of a dongle that can be attached to the TV.
