And now there's a new, redesigned Echo in addition to a brand new, souped-up Echo Plus. Finally, Echo Show is the new Echo with a screen. This adds video calling, visuals for apps such as weather, and you can even watch films on it, if you're desperate for entertainment while locked in the kitchen.
In our T3.com review, we called Amazon Echo Dot a 'no brainer' to buy. It's a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Amazon's voice assistant Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms and more.
Amazon Echo takes the concept a step further - it's a hands-free speaker, great for music, radio, news bulletins and more. Echo Plus builds on this with a beefier speaker and a smart home hub.
The Echo range supports third-party 'skills' as well, so developers outside Amazon can write apps to let the device stream music from Spotify, read tweets or order a ride from Uber.
