Has Amazon been taking meetings with Jack Donaghy?

The Echo Dot (3rd generation) has a new fabric finish, and is priced at Rs. 4,499. The speaker will most likely go on sale next month.

Also new are the Echo Link and Echo Link Amp, devices created to play nicely with existing sound systems. Just say "Alexa, discover my devices", to automatically discover and set-up compatible light bulbs, plugs and switches without the need for additional hubs or apps.

Tidal leverages the new Music Skill API also announced today.

The Amazon Echo Input is a small disc that you connect to an existing speaker via 3.5mm audio cable or Bluetooth.

The TBC sub apparently will add 100W of bass to an Echo or Echo Plus setup of one or two speakers, with stereo pairing also thought to be to the horizon too.

And to complement the device's smart home features, the company also unveiled a new smart plug, aptly named the Amazon Smart Plug.

Echo Sub is a wireless subwoofer for bass heads. Echo Link will ship later this year and cost $200. But if you can't afford a brand new electric vehicle, the Echo Auto is your solution. It will come in new colors and offer better audio quality; the item's price will remain $50.

The Echo Dot is the most popular Echo, and "the best selling speaker ever" according to Amazon. Amazon, however, says its product will stand out thanks to a streamlined process that should make setting up these devices much easier.

The new one comes with a 10-inch HD display, 8-mic array, a front camera and Alexa connection.

The Seattle internet giant keeps introducing devices and features to make its Alexa voice-activated platform more prominent in customers' lives.

Furthermore, Amazon is adding web browsers (including its own Silk browser and Firefox) to the Echo Show. The Echo Show also comes with a new API called Alexa Doorbell API, which will show if someone rings the doorbell on the Echo Show. The Link starts at $200 and will be available later this year.

Today, Amazon revealed that it is dramatically increasing the number of Alexa-powered smart home devices it sells. But it's also a speaker, and given its popularity, Echo should be at least a competent way of listening to music out loud. In India, the Echo Input will be available only early next year.
