In addition to doing everything an Echo can do, like searching the web, setting a timer, checking the weather, or even controlling other smart home devices - the Echo Look is equipped with a camera that you can use to take a photo or video of yourself to share with others. It will let users control their live TV experience with voice commands through those boxes. A whopping eight microphones enable Alexa to hear you "from across the room", while beamforming capabilities will make sure ambient noise, "reverberation, content now playing, and even competing speech" are suppressed for flawless voice command clarity.

The standard version comes with an IR extender cable, remote and an Ethernet adapter.

Prices vary depending on the device chosen, with Amazon now offering its speakers at a significant discount. Echo Show is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive audio powered by Dolby.

This device has a hands-free depth-sensing camera, built-in LED lighting, and computer vision-based background blur which Amazon assures "makes your outfits pop".

Because it's a Fire TV product, the Fire TV Cube connects to your TV and plays content from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, NBC, ESPN, HBO, and more. When you want to use Echo Show, just say the wake word "Alexa" and Echo Show responds instantly. This enables users to do things like switching between TV boxes and consoles, searching for shows and controlling the volume.

Stephens, Keys to reprise US Open final in French Open semis
The Romanian broke at the start of the second set and then held for 6-3 as Kerber dropped her serve again in the ninth game. She clearly still has business to attend to as she eyes a follow-up to her 2016 title on the Parisian clay.

And then there's the third thing: the Fire TV Cube triples as a universal remote. Boom, full integration. It'll work with set-top boxes from Comcast, DISH, et al, too, in case you haven't fully cut the cord.

"We believe voice makes it easier for customers to control their entertainment systems and watch the TV and movies they care about", said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Fire TV.

Amazon Prime members who pre-order today or tomorrow, June 7 and 8, can pick one up for $89.99.

The Cube, which is available for purchase starting June 21, will cost $119.99.

The Amazon Fire TV Cube with IR blasters covered on its four sides allows sending commands to most devices present in an average TV setup.
