The Amazon Echo has been gaining quite a bit of traction recently as it has risen into the list of Best Sellers on Amazon.com. (One can only hope the placement is not a marketing scheme.) A few days ago, Amazon announced two new Alexa-enabled devices. Each of the them serving a unique purpose making each valuable for different reasons.
The new Echo Dot is a hockey puck-shaped Echo that does the same tasks as the original but in a short and stubby form factor. The reason for its form lies in its lack of speakers. The design allows users to plug the Dot into another speaker system. There is still a small speaker inside for voice feedback and alarms but the music-playing speakers have been eliminated. All other features for the Echo Dot are the same as the larger Amazon Echo.
The Amazon Tap is a Bluetooth and WiFi speaker that supports voice commands. This device supports voice commands but you must first press the microphone button on the top to initiate speech recognition. It has two speakers for omni-directional Dolby-processed sound. It was designed to be portable and can manage over nine hours of playback time and three whole weeks of standby time. The Tap sits on top of a slim charging dock and has control buttons to set the volume and skip forward and backwards between songs.
