Amazon Echo Auto gives almost any vehicle Alexa capability

The Echo Wall Clock is an analog clock with LED hashes along the edge to help visually track Alexa timers, while the AmazonBasics Microwave is more of an oddball device - it's an Alexa-enabled microwave that can be controlled with your voice, which is arguably more time-consuming than manually using the keypad, since you'll have to go to the microwave to load it anyways. You can pre-order now for an October 11, 2018, release date.

The newest Echo Show has a 10-inch display and is a window into all things Amazon.

The new Echo Show gets Amazon's new fabric look as well, but a raft of useful functional enhancements too. The four new gadgets all adopt affordable price tags and have as their main feature, the Alexa smart virtual assistant which is integrated with all four products. You can get it in a pack with other Echo devices or on its own on Amazon right now. On detection of specific sounds, it can alert you or your security provider. Case and point, Microsoft and Amazon's recently unveiled collaboration, which has already seen Alexa and Cortana start to interconnect. It also has a Dash functionality that will automatically reorder popcorn if you are running low. This means you don't need to buy specific appliances to have voice control, which could have a huge impact on consumers. So you can ask Alexa to add a minute extra to the presets if that's how you want to cook.

The AmazonBasics Microwave won't ship until November 14th, but it's already (apparently) the number 1 best seller on Amazon for microwaves.

Amazon is launching a slew of new products to compliment its popular Alexa digital voice assistant.

Amazon's looking to join the fight for your driving attention, now a three-way tossup between other cars on the road, Google's Android Auto, and Apple's CarPlay.

The Echo Auto will initially be available at an introductory price of $25 for early users, but the price will eventually increase to $50. Plug the Echo Input into your speaker to give it far-field voice commands with Alexa, without the then-vestigial presence of the Echo Dot's (presumably) much less powerful speaker. It can be paired with an Echo to create a more robust sound system with powerful bass. Hopefully, Amazon's presence will force rival companies in the TV space to make better and more flexible DVR systems to let you watch your favorite shows anywhere. The company announced a $200 Echo Link that can connect to a receiver or amplifier and add a bunch of inputs so you can connect speakers to it.

The Echo Link and Echo Link Amp are the two audiophile-specific products in Amazon's lineup.
