Google Home Hub Is An Amazon Echo Show Rival Coming This Fall

The big question will revolve around how Amazon plans to deploy Alexa into more places. The company has slightly redesigned the Echo Dot, which it calls "the best selling speaker ever". So let's kick it with the devices and some quick thoughts on each of them. Compared to the $130 Google Home and $100 Amazon Echo, the Homepod is often overlooked for cheaper alternatives. However, Google's Home smart speaker has made up quite a bit of ground over the past several months. On the upside, Amazon says it's bringing a web browser to the device.

Spotted by Pocket-Lint on Amazon UK, the first product is the Echo Sub, created to add more oomph to your Echo speaker setup.

And of course the company has been behind some of the most commercial audio products of recent years with its Echo smart speaker range.

The Echo Sub spotted by Pocket-Lint, adds a 100w bass bin to your existing Echo or Echo Plus.

The reporting team at MySmartPrice has finally uncovered the complete specifications of this speaker along with its screenshots. The reign of Alexa is only beginning for Amazon.

A new Echo Show: Ooooh pretty.

Now imagine that potential with a screen, and you're pretty much there.

The new Echo Show is integrated with music video platform Vevo, so users can watch music videos directly on the device.

The new Echo Dot will cost £49.99 and has been given an improved speaker, resulting in audio playing up to 70% louder, Amazon said.

Amazon's voice assistant already has a significant presence in consumers' homes, thanks to the robust ecosystem of developers and manufacturers who are incorporating Alexa into their devices. Of all the devices I saw this is the one I'd buy now if I could. It's gone on to make various flavors of Echo, including smaller Echos, an alarm clock, one with a screen and a device just for kids. You can tell an Echo to add time to the microwave, or ask it to stop.

Today Amazon held a hardware event that was chock full of new product announcements. However, Pocket-Lint points out that this is far more expensive than most smart plugs so the listed price may be incorrect. The outlet is $25 and will be available in October. The result was that when you plug in the outlet Alexa discovered it automatically and then said it found Smart Plug 1. You know, the cloth look. As a fun bonus, it also has a button that will use Amazon's Dash service to reorder popcorn. Alexa, reheat my Thanksgiving leftovers! What's really surprising about the Home Hub is that it doesn't appear to have a front-facing camera, as pointed out by Android Authority.

At its surprise reveal today, Amazon took the wraps off an Alexa-powered microwave, a smart plug, and a whole host of other devices.
