Amazon Echo Spot 2024 launches with Alexa integration and semi-circular display

Date:

Amazon Echo Spot 2024 was launched on Monday, ahead of the company’s annual Prime Day sale in the US that begins on July 16. The new bedside smart-speaker comes seven years after its previous model and features several design and feature upgrades. The tech giant has removed the camera present in the 2017 model and now the Alexa-enabled device only has a touchscreen display and speaker. The new Echo Spot also features a semi-circular display, which is different from the circular display present on the older generation device.

The Amazon Echo Spot 2024 has been priced at $79.99 (roughly Rs. 6,680). Comparatively, the 2017 device was priced at $149.99 (roughly Rs. 12,500). The company further said that during the US Prime Day sale, Amazon Prime members will be able to purchase it for $44.99 (roughly Rs. 3,750). The device is available in Black, Glacier White, and Ocean Blue colour options. The device is available in select markets. At the moment, the company has not shared any plans to introduce it in India.

According to the company, the new Echo Spot has received hardware upgrades across the device. The company has also claimed that it comes with better display and audio quality. Unlike the circular display of its predecessor, the display of the new device covers only the top half of the device, while the 1.73-inch front-firing speaker is on the bottom half.

The 2.83-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 240×320 pixels comes with a customizable alarm clock, weather widget, interface to view song titles, and more. The clock can be customized in six color options including blue, lime, magenta, orange, teal, and purple. Users can also mix-and-match colors to create unique designs.

The Amazon Echo Spot 2024 has a physical button to turn the microphone on and off. There are also physical buttons for volume control. The device is powered by Alexa, so users can ask the voice assistant questions and give it commands as usual. The company has also added 10 different reaction animations that can be triggered with specific gestures such as “Alexa, hello”, “Alexa, tell me a joke”, and “Alexa, thanks”.

In addition, Alexa can also perform a number of tasks, such as controlling compatible smart home devices, receiving audio drop-ins from other Alexa devices, and displaying alerts from compatible smart doorbells.
