The Amazon Echo Dot is a puck no longer

Sphere we go

For 2020 Amazon has decided to give its most popular Echo devices a complete redesign, and just like the main Echo, the almost iconically puck-shaped Echo Dot (£49.99) is now a sphere. Coming in white, blue and charcoal colourways, the new Dot has a 1.6in front-firing speaker which Amazon says produces ‘crisp vocals and balanced bass’. There’s also a new Echo Dot with Clock (£59.99), that has a subtle LED clock embedded in its fabric wrapping. They both look like little crystal balls, and are available for pre-order - going on sale later this year.
