Introducing Echo Spot, the newest addition to the Amazon Echo family. Echo Spot delivers all the familiar features of Alexa with a smaller design and a new circular screen.

Amazon have announced Echo Spot, the newest addition to the Echo family. Echo Spot’s Alexa will offer the same functions as its predecessor, but with a smaller design and the added convenience of a circular screen, so that Alexa can show – not just tell.

Echo Spot fits into any room of your home. The size and viewing angle of the screen make Echo Spot ideal for use on a nightstand or desk as a smart alarm clock that can also turn your lights on and off, watch a video flash briefing, show your commute time, get the weather, or show your calendar. Or use Echo Spot in the kitchen to easily set and view timers, call friends and family, see shopping and to do lists, and more.

Echo Spot features second generation far-field technology with four microphones, acoustic beam-forming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation so it can hear you from across the room – even while music is playing. If you have more than one Echo, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you’re closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).

Said Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President, Amazon Alexa: “Echo Spot combines the popular small design of Echo Dot, the display of Echo Show, and the features you love about Alexa into an all-new, stylish and compact device. See the weather, watch video news briefings, glance at your alarm clock, check on your kids, and more.”
