Amazon Echo Dot makes Alexa compact, Amazon Tap goes portable


Amazon’s much-loved and constantly-updated Amazon Echo smart speaker has some new Alexa-enabled companions: the compact Echo Dot and the portable Amazon Tap.

Amazon says:

Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice controlled device that uses the same far-field voice recognition as Echo. Directly connect Echo Dot to speakers with an audio cable or via Bluetooth, and add voice-control to your home stereo system. Plus, with its small built-in speaker, you can place Echo Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock, or in any room as a voice assistant to control smart home devices and more.

Echo Dot is not being sold via the Amazon website. Instead, it is available exclusively for Amazon Prime members who own an Amazon Echo or a Fire TV device. All they have to do is say, “Alexa, order an Echo Dot” to start the process. It is priced at $89.99.


Here’s what Amazon has to say about the Amazon Tap:

“Amazon Tap is an Alexa-enabled portable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speaker that offers rich, full-range sound. Just tap the microphone button and ask for music, hear the news, search for information, order a pizza, and more with the Alexa Voice Service. Amazon Tap has dual stereo speakers with Dolby processing that provide crisp vocals, extended bass response, and 360° omni-directional audio.”

The Amazon Tap is available for pre-order now at $129.99 on the Amazon site, and shipments are scheduled to start on March 31.
