Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is certainly no stranger to disrupting things, but the company may have designs on bringing that concept to a whole new level.
Several months after Amazon introduced Alexa-powered Echo speakers in India, the company has launched the Echo Spot, its first speaker with a screen, here. Amazon's Echo speakers as well as the Fire line of products - TV set-top-boxes, tablets and the Fire Phone (which bombed in the market). Despite the fact it already has a pretty hefty streaming portfolio with the Fire TV Stick and 4K Fire TV dongle, it looks like something new is on the horizon.
But, thanks to a leak at the tail end of past year, we have a good idea of what to expect. You don't need the speaker or the remote to make it work and it will come with an inbuilt stereo speaker and will work even if your TV is not switched on, according to AFTVnews.
The Echo Spot features Amazon's digital assistant Alexa, which is compatible with Fire OS, Android and iOS devices.
Echo Spot can also connect directly to speakers using a 3.5mm stereo cable or Bluetooth to add voice control to your home stereo system.Echo Spot is also a handy screen to catch up on short-form videos such as news briefings.
Block Explicit Songs - Both in the Alexa experience and FreeTime on Alexa experience, parents with Amazon Music now have the ability to filter playback of songs with explicit lyrics, and we'll continue to add compatible music services to this feature over time.
There are no reports on what the device's actual functions would be but some speculate it could be similar to a mobile Alexa, capable of following users around their house and doing chores, but not a "robot butler".
While the project was actually born a few years ago, it is only now that Amazon has started aggressively hiring people for it. But based on the teaser page and the device's appearance in a recent user manual, it seems like the Fire TV Cube might launch very soon.
Although the first Amazon Fire TV Cube generation nearly certainly won't have the ability to upgrade.
