Instead of looking like a large can of Pringles, Amazon’s pushed down its previous Echo Plus to resemble last year’s cushion-like and round Echo (doesn’t it look a bit like the HomePod?). It’s passed out from its advanced music course and now sports a larger 3in Neodymium woofer that’s able to bang louder tunes from Amazon Prime Music, Saavn or Tune In. With its built-in Zigbee smart home hub, it’s easier to set up and control other smart home devices that are plugged in your not-that-smart home. You can now set room temperature routines using other smart devices too. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon India for ₹14,999 in a fabric-jacket (Charcoal, Heather Gray, and Sandstone) and expect a delivery post October 11. “Alexa, play the indie top 50 playlist, please”.
