Amazon's home robot can be controlled by voice and uses built-in cameras.
Both these devices- Echo and Alexa, the robot are being developed by AmazonLab126, a research and development arm based in Sunnyvale, California.
Releasing a new version of the Echo that is created to take advantage of the better audio could help the company do just that, and Amazon could possibly make the service a part of its Prime subscription, which means people wouldn't have to actually spend any extra money on using it, they would simply need a speaker that was capable of meeting the hardware requirements to output the higher quality sound. Although the HomePod hasn't been quite as strong of a competitor as Apple hoped it would be, Amazon undoubtedly wants to reclaim any lost market share.
The organization intends to launch the new Echo probably next year, as per individuals acquainted with the product.
With over 15 products revealed at last year's Seattle headquarters, we can look forward to new products this year.
