David and Tom just revealed what they believe are the 10 best stocks for investors to buy right now. and Amazon wasn't one of them!

Check out all the details on the new lineup below.

New Echo is a complete redesign of the original Echo.

You will be able to ask Alexa in the auto to give you directions, play music, make a call, control your smart home and much more. It has an improved speaker system with a dedicated subwoofer and tweeter, as well as integrated Dolby sound. "With the proliferation of Echo devices, there's a chance for confusion in the marketplace: with so many devices, with varying functions and costs, which product is best served to win". Once connected, you can just ask your Echo to call someone and the call will be routed through the Echo to Echo Connect to your landline connection to whoever you are calling.

Surprise Amazon.com, Inc Event Reveals New Echo and More
Amazon unveils 6 new devices, including second-generation Echo for $99 and Echo Plus for $149

The Fire TV is already on pre-order and shipping in the United States starts October 25.

On Wednesday, Amazon announced a range of new Echo family devices, including an "all-new" Amazon Echo with improved sound and better performance, an Echo Plus with a built-in smart-home hub, and a new Echo Spot with a display and camera.

With Alexa, Amazon Fire TV can control smart home enabled lights, thermostats, and other compatible devices.

Call or message anyone hands-free with your Echo device.


Becoming the omni-hub - One of the most annoying things about smart home devices like Philips Hue bulbs is that most require their own hub that hooks up to Ethernet and beams connectivity to the individual devices.

The new speaker sports all the same features what we saw in the original Amazon Echo. An Echo Button twin pack will cost £19.99 ($19.99).

Echo Plus orders in advance begin September 27 and the device will be available October 31. This puts it in competition with Apple TV 4K which also supports HDR. Moreover, the Echo Spot alarm clock is packed with an acoustic beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation.

But wait, there's more: If you want an HD antenna for over-the-air TV along with this bundle, Amazon will add that too for just $5.


In addition to these, you can also grab 3 of the new Echos for $247 when you use coupon code ECHO3PACK at checkout.

Apple TV 4K vs Amazon Fire TV 4K: Which is the better buy?

Replacing the phone - Amazon scrapped its Fire phone, but it still knows that it has to win over how we already talk through computers to be the future of voice. The speaker comes loaded with Alexa and it can be used to trigger multiple actions like opening a garage door and more.
