• Amazon Makes Echo Device Available for All U.S. Customers to Order

    At the end of last year, we introduced Amazon’s new ‘Siri-like’ virtual assistant device that works in a standalone tubular speaker called Echo. Today, the electronic commerce company officially announced to customers that they have opened up orders to the general public. Previously, Echo was only available as an invite only purchase but now anyone in the United States could order the new accessory. However, the expected ship date for Echo is next month on July 14th. The overall rating for the device is 4.5 stars as it’s been available since November of last year for invites to purchase.

    Amazon’s Echo is capable of delivering music, traffic, and weather just to name a few, and costs consumers $179.99 to purchase. According to VP of Amazon Echo & Speech, Greg Hart, the accessory has received great positive response from customers.

    We are grateful to our early customers for their incredible engagement and for providing us with invaluable feedback to help shape Echo as it evolves—with their help, we've been able to add features like Audible, Pandora, home automation, sports scores, calendar, and more. We're excited to get Echo into the hands of even more customers and continue to invent new features and experiences.
    Echo has seven microphones built into the device so that clear voices could be heard around the room. The device also has built-in technology so that reverberation, noise, and competing speech can be suppressed. Those who are interested in the device, should definitely head on over to the website and order the accessory soon before it gets sold out.
