New Delhi, March 4 (ANI): American electronic commerce and cloud computing company Amazon.com has introduced two devices designed to amplify the role of its voice-controlled assistant Alexa in Amazon Echo, the wireless cylindrical-shaped speaker.
The devices, called the Amazon Tap and Echo Dot, cost less than USD 180 and offer slightly different features in an attempt to plant Amazon’s Internet-connected microphones in more homes and other places.
Echo Dot is an Echo without the big speaker housing. Users can plug the puck-like device directly into another speaker or connect it to another speaker over Bluetooth, and the Dot will play music and communicate with the user, the Verge reported.
The objective of the Echo Dot is to bring Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, to many other devices throughout the home.
Amazon Echo is a wireless speaker and voice command device from Amazon.com.
The device consists of a 9.25-inch (23.5 cm) tall cylinder speaker with a seven-piece microphone array. The device responds to the name ‘Alexa’. (ANI)
