Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) today introduced the next generation of Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock, giving you more ways to bring the convenience of Alexa to every room of your home.
The all-new Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock are the most powerful yet. The redesigned audio architecture features a custom full range driver and the highest excursion speaker of any Echo Dot, delivering clear vocals and up to double the bass of the previous generation—all within the same compact, spherical form factor.
Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock have new sensors that enable more contextual Alexa experiences—like the ability to set up routines to ask Alexa to automatically turn on the smart fan when it gets too warm inside. The new generation also adds an accelerometer to enable new tap gesture controls, so you can simply tap the top of the device to pause and resume music, dismiss timers, or Drop In.
The new Echo Dot with Clock features an upgraded 5x21 LED high-density dot technology, offering a more vibrant and dynamic way to see information at a glance. Now, in addition to the time, you can view the weather, calendar event times, and more.
Echo devices are designed with your privacy in mind and include multiple layers of privacy controls. Echo devices include a microphone on/off button and the ability to view and delete your voice recordings.
