In addition to that, it packs all the usual voice assistant features such as pulling up weather details, pictures and videos from Google Photos, controlling your smart home, Nest security camera integrations, guiding you through food recipes, directions, et cetera.

I'd like to introduce you to the AmazonBasics Microwave that brings the simplicity and convenience of voice to a compact countertop microwave.

The Echo Dot will be available next month and cost £49.99.

Echo Auto: This tiny device puts the Amazon Echo in your vehicle and uses the location from your phone??? to offer directions, trigger events as you get near your home and even suggest nearby restaurants.

The new Echo Show promises better audio and more microphones.

If the report is to be believed the Google Home Hub smart display will cost $149, this will be a quite cool gadget at a reasonable price.

This device has now had a big update which includes a larger 10-inch HD display, better sound with improved bass and a built-in smart home hub.

8 new Alexa devices planned including a microwave, report says
According to the report , Amazon is expected to reveal at least some of the devices later this month. The company is also working on robots of some kind for the home, per Bloomberg .

It could be a credible alternative to the likes of the Google Home Max, HomePod, and the Sonos range, but of course, we'd be keen to examine the difference in sound quality between the Echo Sub and its rivals when it's out. As per the report, the tablet-shaped LCD won't have the OS Android in it, but it will be having a scaled-down Google Assistant interface. Here's everything Amazon announced today.

One surprising omission from the leaked shots is any kind of camera technology. The Echo Link is made to work with stereos, receivers, and amplifiers like the new Echo Link Amp ($300), a 60W two-channel amplifier that also plays nice with existing sound systems but naturally has all the Alexa perks baked-on. Whether this is for privacy or cost-cutting reasons, we're not entirely sure. It also possesses the same Chalk White aesthetic which is a trademark of other Google smart speakers as well.

That's £113, but after sales tax and the general trend of upwards rounding on United Kingdom prices, I imagine it'll be closer to £149 if the original report is correct. The Home Hub will be powered by a 15W wall adapter according to the leaked specs.

The Google Home Hub release date is now unknown. Google's device is expected to launch at the October 9 event alongside the Pixel 3 devices.

But even if it is revealed as coming this year, that doesn't necessarily mean we'll see it in a timely fashion this side of the Atlantic.

The Echo Show launched past year and brings a screen to the Alexa speaker family.

In the Google Home Hub box, there will be a power adapter, a warranty booklet and a quick start guide.
