Meet Amazon's Completely Refreshed Lineup of New Echo Devices”

The sources say the device, codenamed Manhattan, was originally scheduled for mid-2018. Let's see what's new inside these new generation Echo. The size and viewing angle of the screen make Echo Spot ideal for use on a nightstand or desk as a smart alarm clock that can also turn your lights on and off, watch a video flash briefing, show your commute time, get the weather, or show your calendar.

Google subsequently denied making a sudden decision regarding Echo Show compatibility. Both sources claim that the device will act as a hub for smart home devices, plus YouTube, Google Assistant, Google Photos and video calling.

There is also a new Echo connect device that will allow you to make landline calls with Alexa.

It seems that Google is taking another page from Amazon and prepping a smart speaker with a built-in display.

Google is reportedly hard at work on a tabletop smart screen device that will feature its voice-activated Google Assistant software, a clear attempt to compete with Amazon's Echo Show and the wave of smart home assistant devices that other tech firms are working on. Of particular note was its second smart screen device, the compact new Echo Spot. You can use it to play games like Trivia on your Echo speaker and include your family in it. The publication AFTVnews released leaked images of a new Fire TV Stick and Fire TV box that appeared to have increased Alexa capabilities, bolstering rumors that the streaming device was getting an update of its own. At the moment no price estimates are known.

Once you've set up Alexa calling and messaging, your own mobile number is linked to the device and will show up to recipients when you call. Those alliances with automakers still might not be enough keep Amazon and Alexa competitive with Google and Apple outside the home, given the software made by those two power most of the smartphones in the world. All the models released by mid 2018 in the United States, United Kingdom and Germany would be Alexa compatible. 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. According to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), the Echo enjoys a 76% market share in the United States, compared to 24% for the Google Home. eMarketer reached a similar conclusion, it said in a recent report.
