5 Second-Generation Echo Plus
Much like last-year’s Echo model, Amazon’s second-generation Echo Plus boasts a soft-curved, cloth-covered design, but brings new features like better sound-quality and integration with Smart Home devices and accessories to the table.
The second-generation Echo Plus features a new in-built temperature sensor which can interface with your home’s existing Smart thermostat hardware.
Amazon also showcased the Echo Plus’ new local voice controls feature, which will essentially allow you to use the Echo Plus when there’s no internet connection.
The device is available to pre-order starting today for $149.99, and the first units are expected to ship in mid-October.
