Amazon Announces New Echo Dot and Echo Plus —Add Alexa to Every Room

New Echo companion device, Echo Sub, lets you add a subwoofer to your compatible Echo devices

Bangalore, India—Sept 20, 2018—Today, Amazon introduced a new line-up of Echo devices, and an Echo companion device, making it even easier to bring the features and convenience of Alexa to any room in the home.

New Echo and Echo companion devices include:

  • All-New Echo Dot: The easiest way to bring Alexa into your home, now with a new speaker for louder and crisper sound, an updated fabric design, and still only ₹4,499

  • 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, and still only ₹14,999

  • Echo Sub: Add deep, rich bass to music playback on Echo devices for ₹12,999

    “We want you to have access to Alexa everywhere—in your living room, kitchen, bedroom or the office” said Jayshree Gururaj, Director - Amazon Devices. “We are excited today to expand the number of ways customers can use Alexa in their homes to make their lives more convenient — whether it’s asking for the day’s highlights in the morning, listening to music in the evening, or simply saying ‘Alexa, good night,’ to turn the lights off and turn on the AC.”

New Echo Devices—Access Alexa Everywhere in Your Home

All-New Echo Dot—Now with a New Design and More Powerful Sound—Still Just ₹4,499

The next-generation Echo Dot features a new fabric design and more powerful sound—and it is still the best way to add Alexa to any room. With an all-new curved shape and fabric finish, Echo Dot is available in Charcoal, Heather Gray, and Sandstone, letting customers easily mix and match. The new Echo Dot plays music louder with richer sound, all in a compact design. Connect to your home theater or favorite speaker via Bluetooth or 3.5mm audio cable for even bigger sound. Put an Echo Dot in every room to ask for information or the weather, play your favorite music in a multi-room music grouping, set timers and alarms, and control compatible smart home devices.

All-New Echo Plus—New Design, Upgraded Sound, Built-In Smart Home Hub and More Ways to Control Your Smart Home—Still Just ₹14,999

With its built-in Zigbee smart home hub, the all-new Echo Plus makes setting up compatible smart home devices easy. Just say, “Alexa, discover my devices,” and Echo Plus will automatically discover and setup compatible lights and plugs without the need for additional hubs or apps. Echo Plus now includes an embedded temperature sensor, so you can set temperature-based routines using other smart home devices. For example, when the living room reaches 32 degree Celsius, Alexa can send a notification to your phone and turn on the AC connected to a smart plug.

Echo Plus has a larger 3” Neodymium woofer and increased back volume so that the bass feels stronger and the mids and highs are clearer. It also features an all-new fabric design and is available in Charcoal, Heather Gray, and Sandstone.

Echo Companion Device—Enhance your Experience with Echo Sub

Echo Sub—Powerful Subwoofer for your Echo— Just ₹12,999
Echo Sub is the first wireless Echo subwoofer for those who want to pump up the bass when listening to music on their existing or new Echo devices. You can connect Echo Sub to compatible Echo devices to create a 1.1 or 2.1 pairing for stereo sound. Plus, with the equalizer feature you can adjust the bass, mid-range, and treble of the pairing simply by using your voice. Just say, “Alexa, turn up the bass.”

Availability
All new Echo devices are available for pre-order on Amazon.in starting today. Echo Dot and Echo Plus will start shipping next month. Echo Sub will be available later this year.

The new devices announced today join the Echo and Echo Spot to create the Echo family of devices.
