Amazon just announced 14 new smart-home devices, including updated Echo Devices, new Alexa features, and more, bringing Alexa to your kitchen, your car, and more and making your life easier (and cleverer) than ever.
Amazon may always be in the news—for little things like Amazon Prime Day and bringing near-instant delivery to grocery store chain Whole Foods—but it’s not every day that the online shopping giant announces new additions to its exclusive collection of Echo smart-home devices.
Yesterday was one of those days, to the joy of Amazon Prime members and Amazon fanatics across the globe. Amazon revealed more than 70 new devices, features, and developer tools for its proprietary Alexa, Echo, and Fire TV products—including the updated Echo Dot, Echo Plus, and Echo Show and a smart AmazonBasics microwave. With all these upgrades and the 14 new devices, there’s a lot to take in—but these are our life-simplifying favorites.
