Both listings have since been taken down from Amazon.com, following the initial spot by Pocket-lint.

The Echo Plus has received a similar fabric makeover, and now has added temperature-gauging capabilities while maintaining its $150 price tag. The speaker will most likely go on sale next month. Now, Microsoft has said that it will offer Skype to Alexa devices, too. The new gen Eco Dot speaker comes with a new fabric finish.

To get the music and directions to play through your car's stereo system, you can connect the Auto using Bluetooth (again, if your car's head unit supports it) or via a simple 3.5mm auxiliary cable. The Echo Dot is available in three colours - Charcoal, Heather Gray, and Sandstone.

Amazon also revealed significant upgrades to existing products. The most affordable out of them is the all-new Echo Dot. The Echo Wall Clock, on the other hand, will cost US$29.99 (~RM124), and will ship later this year, with no specific date given.

The Echo Sub is the first ever wireless Echo subwoofer from the company which is offering 100W deep bass sound through a 6-inch woofer.

David Limp, Amazon.com Inc's senior vice president of devices & services, introduces new products at company headquarters in Seattle, Washington, U.S., September 20, 2018.

In fact, Amazon is boasting that its new speaker is 70 percent louder than its predecessor.

The range is aimed at giving customers a way to put Alexa in every room of their house, with the star centrepiece the all-new designed Echo Show. Amazon, however, says its product will stand out thanks to a streamlined process that should make setting up these devices much easier.

It also comes with new dual speakers for better audio output. The Link starts at $200 and will be available later this year.

An invitation-only device for now, Echo Auto is a small dashboard-mounted hub which brings Alexa and voice commands to any vehicle. You can stream the DVR'd content to other Amazon devices like Fire TV or Echo Show, as well as Android and iOS devices. It is coming later this year for US$34.99. The Echo Input will launch soon. The Echo Input will come bundled with speakers from companies like Bose.

Stay tuned for more updates from Amazon's hardware launch event! It wants the chipper voice assistant to be available in more places, including cars and the kitchen. Once it's fully developed, the Echo Auto will sell for $68.
