Amazon has also put forth a logic, that with a smart clock like this, people wouldn't have to worry about daylight savings time. The newly launched Echo Dot is the third-generation one with a new fabric finish, similar to Google Home Mini. Let's say you happen to already own an Echo Show, and a Ring front-door camera.

As you can see, the new Dot is available in three colours known as charcoal, heather grey and sandstone.

With the new left-right stereo pairing feature, you can connect two of the same, supported Echo devices for stereo sound. Echo Dot and Echo Plus and ships from October 11th, while the Echo Sub will be available from November 14th. The 3.0-inch woofer and 0.8-inch tweeter allows the Echo Plus to be louder while delivering more bass.

Furthermore, Amazon is adding web browsers (including its own Silk browser and Firefox) to the Echo Show.

Amazon has also announced a swathe of other Alexa-enabled devices alongside the Dot including something called the Echo Input. The Echo plus is priced at Rs 14,999. Once it's fully developed, the Echo Auto will sell for $68.

You can either pair a single Echo/Echo Plus with the Sub or two of them for a 2.1 speaker set where each of the Echo/Echo Plus become individual stereo speakers. It will use a new "Real Time OS" from Amazon and you connect it to your phone, so you can use navigation via Google Maps.
