AMA­ZON has an­nounced new de­vices that would make it eas­ier to bring the fea­tures and con­ve­nience of Alexa to more places in Aus­tralian homes.

New Echo de­vices go­ing on sale in­clude:

1. Echo Show: An all-new de­sign up­graded speaker, 10-inch HD dis­play, and a built-in smart home hub, for $349.

2. All-New Echo Plus: A sim­ple way to start your smart home with a built-in Zig­bee hub, plus an up­graded speaker and a new de­sign, for $229.

3. All-New Echo Dot: The eas­i­est way to bring Alexa into your home, now with a new speaker for louder sound and up­dated fab­ric de­sign, for $79.

4. Echo Sub: An Echo com­pan­ion de­vice, that adds deep, rich bass to mu­sic play­back on Echo de­vices for $199. 5. Echo In­put: The Echo In­put has far-field mi­cro­phones but in­stead of in­clud­ing its own speaker, it plugs into or pairs with an­other speaker. Not avail­able in Aus­tralia un­til later in the year.

De­vices may also be pre-or­dered at re­tail­ers in­clud­ing JB Hi-Fi and Of­fice­works.
