Amazon Echo Plus (2nd gen)
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.
