Amazon Introduces Echo Spot: Alexa With a Circular Screen

Amazon Echo Spot

A More Affordable Echo Show With a Touch of Dot

Amazon today announced Echo Spot, a $130 Alexa enabled voice command gadget with a 2-1/2 inch circular screen. It is designed to be placed on your nightstand, desk, kitchen counter, or side table. It can be used as an alarm clock, create to-do lists, or control other smart home devices. The screen can be useful to watch short videos, show weather, traffic, or your calendar.

Just like Echo Show, you can also use Echo Spot to start a voice or video call, or send a message — simply say, “Alexa, call dad,” or “Alexa, send a message to Mary.”

“Echo Spot combines the popular small design of Echo Dot, the display of Echo Show, and the features you love about Alexa into an all-new, stylish and compact device,” said Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President, Amazon Alexa.

Echo Spot delivers Alexa functionality in a smaller form factor with the added convenience of a circular screen so that Alexa can show you things. It features second generation far-field technology with four microphones, acoustic beam-forming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation so it can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. If you have more than one Echo, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you’re closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).

Alexa can talk to you and play music directly on Echo Spot through the built-in 2-watt speaker. Echo Spot can directly connect to speakers through Bluetooth or using a 3.5mm stereo cable, enabling you to add Alexa to your home entertainment system. Then, use just your voice to control Amazon Music, Prime Music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more. Plus, with the new multi-room music feature, you can play your favorites throughout your home, with synchronized music across all of your Echo devices.

Echo Spot integrates all of the smart home capabilities that allow you to turn on the lights, view your live camera feed from the nursery, set up Routines, control the temperature, lock your doors with your voice when you’re heading to bed, and more.

Pricing and Availability
Amazon Echo Spot will be available in black and white for $129.99 and will start shipping in the U.S. December 2017. You can pre-order starting today at www.amazon.com/echospot. Echo Spot will be available in the UK and Germany early 2018.
