Echo Plus now features a fabric exterior and more rounded edges. This will mean that you will be able to make and receive voice calls from your Echo, or indeed video calls if you have a device with a display (like the Echo Show). They feature multiple wired audio connections for hooking up to a receiver or unpowered speakers, including analog, coax, optical, 3.5mm headphone and subwoofer outputs, and analog, optical and coax inputs, along with an Ethernet port for wired network connectivity. Although no specs were provided, the bigger screen device could be priced around $400 (or around $548.78 AUD) while the smaller screen device could go for around $300 (or around $411.59 AUD).

Announced yesterday in a press conference that also saw the unveil of a new Alexa-powered microwave - yes, really - Amazon Echo Auto is created to bring Amazon Alexa into older vehicles.
But Amazon is trying to shorten that gap.
And you thought Amazon's crafty consumerism ended with the microwave. So the only thing that sets it apart from regular clocks is that you can use Alexa and your voice to set timers, alarms, and change the time. The Echo Auto comes with as many as eight microphones that the company says can make out your voice even over road noise and music. Since this is basically just a clock-one that auto-corrects for stupid things like "spring forward" and "fall back", mind you-but a clock nevertheless.
The Echo Plus is also a next-gen model (2nd gen) and comes with similar upgrades with a new fabric design replacing the plastic one from previous year. You can then stream these recordings to any compatible device, like a Fire TV, Echo Show, or various other tablets and smartphones. This is all part of Amazon's strategy to expand Alexa, the voice-enabled assistant that competes with Google Assistant and Apple Siri.
