Updates In The New Echo Dot Include A More Inviting Look With Better Sound Quality
Amazon recently has a new look to their Dot by replacing the plastic with fabric. More and more manufacturers are doing the same in an attempt to make sure the speakers blend in with the inside of the houses. The shift is in metal and plastic materials being replaced by wood and fabric. Amazon’s old options of black and white colors have now been replaced by charcoal, heather gray, and sandstone fabrics.
The revamped Echo Dot has four buttons for muting the microphone, volume control, and reaching out Alexa without the voice command.
The familiar blue light ring sits on top of the Echo Dot, as it does on all Echo device. Blue means Alexa is listening or speaking, red means the microphone is muted, and green means the Echo is being used as an intercom with another Echo elsewhere in the home.
The company has also made sure that the latest Echo Dot has better sound quality by installing a 1.6-inch speaker. Alexa can tell you the weather forecast, the news, play games, tell jokes, place reminders, and of course, help you manage smart devices like locks, thermostats, irrigation systems, lights, and robotic vacuum cleaners.
