Amazon introduced the Amazon Echo Dot, a new virtual assistant that is powered by Alexa. It has a whole new design than its predecessor which is compact and sleek in white or black with an in-built speaker. The device can be used as a Smart Alarm clock to turn your lights off.
It has an array of seven microphones just like in Amazon Echo, noise cancellation and beam-forming technology to identify the wake word, Alexa, from any corner of the room. The company has integrated a powerful speech processor, which provides a far-field speech recognition accuracy.
The new Amazon Echo Dot is priced at $49.99 (Rs 3350 approx) and will be available either in White or Black colors. The gadget is available for pre-order from Amazon.com and its shipping will commence from next month.
