The speaker is packed with a 2.5-inch downward-firing woofer, Dolby Digital support, and far-field microphone technology for picking up voice commands precisely. It includes new Alexa features like smart home groups and Alexa Routines.

The new Echo has a choice of six new finishes: charcoal fabric, sandstone fabric, heather grey fabric, oak finish, walnut and silver. Echo Plus acts as a smart home hub powered by more than 100 partners. Pre-order is already available and it will ship on 31 October in both countries.
