Amazon Echo 5th Generation – What’s New?
When the Amazon Echo first came out, it cost $180. The second-generation model dropped in price to $100, and has remained that way ever since. Amazon is likely to stay at that price for the 5th-generation Echo. The price is a psychological threshold, and Amazon can afford to make the Echo a loss-leader since there are already so many products and services branded with the Amazon name. However, the company may have to raise prices to make up for supply chain issues.
The Amazon Echo 5th generation has a 5.5-inch screen with HD resolution, a 2MP camera, and dual-band Wi-Fi. It connects to your home wireless network, and can play music, watch videos, and check the weather or traffic reports. The device is small enough to fit on a nightstand, making it easy to use even on the go. It can even connect to multiple Alexa devices at once.
The Echo 5th generation also has the ability to listen to non-verbal cues. It can identify people in your home based on your voice and other audible cues. The speaker is capable of streaming voice recordings all the time, even when it is not activated. Although it is unlikely that Amazon will release the 5th-generation Echo this year, it will most likely launch a new Echo device at some point. In the meantime, the company will continue to push the Fire TV ecosystem with new products, such as the Echo Show 5 Kids.
If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to the fourth-generation Echo Dot, the new Amazon Echo Show 5 is a great choice. Its compact design and built-in camera make it a great bedside companion. For under $90, you can pre-order the Echo Show 5, which is available in blue. The Echo Show 5 will launch on June 26, 2019. Until then, the third-generation Echo Show will cost around PS75 in the UK, and will be available in Australia on November 5.
