Amazon's innovative Echo Look is finally available for anyone to buy

Amazon launches Echo Look in U.S., could popularize computer vision via Alexa

Power your TV on and off, change the volume, switch to different inputs, and change the cable channel-all with just your voice. This could be done with hardware like the Harmony Hub, but now it's all built into Amazon's echo system, with less to setup. Over the past year we invited customers to use Echo Look and give us feedback, which led to the launch of many new features-we're now excited to make the device available to all customers, with even more fashionable features and functionality to come that will help customers look their best every day. Voice search is also supported, not to mention all the typical Alexa tricks, like weather forecasts, news and smart home device controls.

Alexa's responses on the Fire TV Cube will be optimized for the big screen and accompanied by rich visual information. Just say "Alexa, launch Netflix"; "Alexa, tune to CBS"; or "Alexa, find dramas". Another plus: since it's created to hook up to a TV, users can easily control and view smart camera feeds. These are features not found in Amazon's current Fire TV 4K Player. "And, it's just the beginning". Plus, since it's a streaming device, it can stream content from stuff like Prime Video and Netflix and still give you access to all of Alexa's skills. Named a Mashable Choice product in 2017, the Echo Show includes eight microphones to catch your commands, plus Dolby-powered speakers.

Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Spot are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around your voice-they're always ready, hands-free, and fast.

In the box, it comes with power and ethernet adapters, an Alexa Voice Remote, and the aforementioned IR extender.
