Ama­zon Echo Plus (2nd gen)

£139.99, ama­

Ask Alexa who the wealth­i­est per­son in the world is right now, and she’ll tell you it’s Jeff Be­zos. Ama­zon’s head hon­cho is worth $150 bil­lion – and he’s about to be­come even richer thanks to all th­ese new launches. One of the most no­table sees Ama­zon’s premium Alexa speaker, the Echo Plus, get a re­furb. Looks-wise, it’s more like the sec­ond­gen Echo, and now looks like that speaker’s chub­bier cousin, while beefier bass and clearer acous­tics should pro­vide a more sat­is­fac­tory lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Also new in this edi­tion is a built-in tem­per­a­ture sen­sor, which means you can ask Alexa how warm or cold your room is, and even pro­gram it to au­to­mat­i­cally ad­just your home’s heat­ing sys­tem when those de­grees dip be­neath a cer­tain level.

T3 SAYS: There’s some promis­ing new fea­tures here, so we hope they work as well as they claim to.
