What’s different with the next-gen Echo devices, and what changes to expect? Amazon claims all the new Echo gadgets feature much-needed capabilities along with a sleek design. Check them all out below and choose your favorite!
The new Echo Pop by Amazon is by far the chicest, entry-level smart speaker. Besides the new “pop” of color and music skills, Echo Pop is here to rock your world, like literally.
Among features, Echo Pop flaunts a quirky, semi-spherical design (quite similar to half of an Echo Dot. It also has a 1.95 front-firing speaker, an integrated Alexa assistant, of course, and eero WiFi compatibility. The color options include a nostalgic Lavender Bloom and a deep Midnight Teal that you’ll lose yourself into.
Echo Pop will be available starting May 31 at $39.99.
These wireless earbuds are definitely going to be one of the most affordable buds due to their much more straightforward semi-in-ear design. But hey, that doesn’t mean we won’t get some sleek features.
For example, the Echo Buds have a battery life of five hours (up to 20 hours by utilizing the charging case). You will also be able to charge them in 15-minute and get two hours of life. Quite impressive, isn’t it?! Unfortunately, active noise cancellation and replaceable silicone ear tips are not included. However, the buds allow multi-device connection and configurable tap controls (yay!).
The Echo Buds will be available starting June 7 for $49.99.
