Alexa Takes Over Your Entire Life: Amazon Announced 11 New Echo Products

It also has support for either Amazon's Silk browser or Firefox as well as new integrations with Hulu, NBC and Vevo, plus the Amazon Ring doorbell camera so you can see who's at the door. This is similar to the new Link Amp (US$300), but it adds a 60W stereo amp to the equation allowing you to connect it to your favorite pair of speakers.

In addition to a number of new home Echo devices, Amazon today announced the all-new Echo Auto. It will connect to your phone via Bluetooth so that Alexa's voice commands work. Echo Sub is specially created to be paired with Echo devices so that the users can experience a much better sound giving a feel of a surround sound system.

Alexa is even developing a personality, by conversing with millions of customers.

Amazon unveiled 13 new hardware products, along with a slew of new services and Alexa updates, at an event on Thursday. Ford, BMW and Toyota have also been adding Alexa to their cars, and we expect more manufacturers to follow.

Alexa uses artificial intelligence to identify patterns in the lives of users, factoring in weather, time of year and more.

For the connectivity-driven drivers, Echo Auto also brings the smart home with it. Users can issue commands such as "open/close the garage door" and control their thermostat or lights directly from the vehicle before they get home.

The all-new Echo Dot comes with a new louder and crisper sounding speaker and an updated fabric design (charcoal, heather grey, or sandstone). "That is not going to happen overnight", Limp said. Behind the screen is the speaker with a mute toggle as well, and the Hub sports the same Chalk White colour as other Google speakers.

Automakers including BMW, Ford Motor Co., Volkswagen's Seat brand and Toyota Motor Corp. have begun working to integrate Alexa into their vehicles. But the Cambridge Analytica scandal, as well as revelations of Russian Federation interfering with the 2016 elections, caused the company to rethink plans to rollout a smart speaker with so much fear around its user privacy.

When Echo speakers are set to guard mode, they listen for breaking glass or the sound of alarms from smoke or carbon dioxide detectors and send alerts to smartphones or even security companies.

The sources also reaffirmed the earlier rumor that the device includes a wide-angle camera to facilitate video calls.
