Australia is getting another option in smart speakers!
Only a day after I post a cool page from google covering all the commands that Google Assistant can execute and saying that Google Home is the only smart assistant officially available in Australia we have this..
The Echo much like the Google Home is a connected speaker that uses its own intelligent assistant to carry out tasks like show videos, play music, answer questions, entertain you with games.
The difference in the Echo range is a direct hook into the Amazon online marketplace. With a few words you can re-order printer paper for your home office or anything else you might like.
Set for release on the first of February, the Echo range of products will be available online through the Amazon web store and at retailers Telstra, JB HiFi, Officeworks and Myer.
Pricing is $49 for the Echo Dot, $119 for the Echo and the Echo Plus $199. If you are quick enough to pre-order the Echo Plus from Amazon, you will also get a Philips Hue Smart Lightbulb thrown in. (While Stocks Last)
