Echo Spot, Echo Plus, Echo Connect and Echo Buttons – the newest addition to the Alexa family!  These four in addition to the New Echo and New Fire TV were launched today at a surprise event held in Amazon’s Seattle headquarters.

Here’s a rundown of every Echo device Amazon unveiled today:

Echo Spot

(Available for Pre-Order, $129.99)

It’s stylish, compact (1.3″ x 3.3″ x 3.3″, 5.7 oz.) and brings everything you love about Alexa.  But what makes this little device different is that it comes with a circular screen so that Alexa can actually “show” you things – whether it’s the lyrics of your favorite song, the person at the front door, your baby in the nursery or even for video calls.

“Echo Spot combines the popular small design of Echo Dot, the display of Echo Show, and the features you love about Alexa into an all-new, stylish and compact device,” said Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President, Amazon Alexa.

Echo Plus

(Available for Pre-Order, $149.99)

At first glance, it may look like the original Echo but it’s not.  The Echo Plus comes with all the Alexa capabilities but this one has a built-in hub that easily connects and controls smart devices such as light bulbs, door locks, switches and plugs.  No need for third party apps – just say, “Alexa, discover my devices” and it will automatically search for and set up compatible smart home devices.

Echo Connect

(Available for Pre-Order, $34.99)

This box-shaped Alexa-powered device connects to your landline or VoIP and lets you make hands-free calls from across the room, including 911.  It’s highly recommended for aging adults who are living alone.
