Unfortunately, this article is going to be using the word “Echo” a lot. Amazon has announced the all-new Echo Spot, which resides alongside the newly announced Echo and Echo Plus. But unlike those devices, the Echo Spot features a screen.
Overall the Echo Spot looks like a miniature Echo Show, much like the Echo Dot was a cheaper and smaller version of the original Echo. It features a round 2.5-inch screen, a front facing camera for video calls, and a speaker, though it has Bluetooth and a 3.5mm jack for use with a better speaker. The screen will display info related to what you ask for, as well as things like lyrics and video clips.
Other than the display, it’s a regular Amazon Alexa-enabled device. It will be launching on December 19 for $129.99 in black and white, undercutting the full sized Echo Show by $100. Let us know what you think of a more budget-oriented Echo with a screen!
