Amazon announces next generation Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock

Amazon has officially introduced the next generation of Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock, giving you more ways to bring the convenience of Alexa to every room of your home.

“A true ambient experience is there to simplify your day-to-day life when you need it and fades into the background when you don’t. This generation of Echo devices were designed with that vision in mind,” said Eric Saarnio, Vice President, Amazon Devices International. “With the upgraded audio, and compact form factors, these new devices give customers more ways to make Alexa a seamless part of their day. And, with the new sensor sand technology built in to Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock, customers can have Alexa do even more on their behalf.”

New Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock—Even Better Audio, New Temperature Sensor, Tap Gesture Controls, and Upgraded LED Display

The all-new Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock are the most powerful yet. The redesigned audio architecture features a custom full range driver and the highest excursion speaker of any Echo Dot, delivering clear vocals and up to double the bass of the previous generation—all within the same compact, spherical form factor.

Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock have new sensors that enable more contextual Alexa experiences—like the ability to set up routines to ask Alexa to automatically turn on the smart fan when it gets too warm inside. The new generation also adds an accelerometer to enable new tap gesture controls, so you can simply tap the top of the device to pause and resume music, dismiss timers, or Drop In.

The new Echo Dot with Clock features an upgraded 5×21 LED high-density dot technology, offering a more vibrant and dynamic way to see information at a glance. Now, in addition to the time, you can view the weather, calendar event times, and more.

Built with Privacy in Mind

Echo devices are designed with your privacy in mind and include multiple layers of privacy controls. Echo devices include a microphone on/off button and the ability to view and delete your voice recordings.
