Choose the right Echo for you
There are several versions of the Echo smart speaker available, giving you plenty of choice in price and performance - here's a rundown of all the Echo devices that are available.
New Amazon Echo (2nd generation)
- Dimensions: 148.5 x 88 x 88mm, 820g
- Audio: 2.5-inch woofer and 0.6-inch tweeter
Amazon Echo is a new version of the original smart speaker with Alexa. It's cheaper than its predecessor which is great, but if you're after top-notch sound quality then go for the Echo Plus (below).
Amazon Echo Plus (2nd generation)
- Dimensions: 148 x 99 x 99mm, 780g
- Audio: 3.0-inch neodymium woofer and 0.8-inch tweeter
Amazon newly-released second-generation Echo Plus offers excellent Dolby-enhanced sound that's a vast improvement over the standard Echo. Echo Plus has all the Alexa skills you know and love but it's a much more capable smart home controller, thanks to the inclusion of Zigbee.
Amazon Echo Dot (3rd generation)
- Dimensions: 43 x 99 x 99 mm, 300mm
- Audio: Built-in speaker, 3.5 mm stereo audio output for use with external speakers
Echo Dot is a small cylinder that has recently been redesigned with a much punchier speaker than the previous generation so it can now be used for music in a small space. There's a 3.5mm audio jack and Bluetooth to make other devices smart (if this is all you want then see below). It's basically just the top section of the Amazon Echo and it can do all the same stuff.
The second-generation Echo Dot is still available if you snap up one quickly. Get this if you don't need to use Echo Dot as a music speaker. Amazon US | Amazon UK - it offers the same functionality as the Echo Input but with a tiny speaker. Don't know what the Input is? See below...
Amazon Echo Input
- Dimensions: 14 x 80 x 80mm, 79g
- Audio: None
Announced as part of Amazon's big Echo refresh in September, the Echo Input is like an Echo Dot but without any type of speaker inside. It's literally for bringing Alexa to another speaker that has its own power source and there is a 3.5mm input (it's like the Chromecast Audio). We'd expect the price to drop as it is a little more expensive than the Chromecast.
Amazon Echo Show (2nd generation)
- Dimensions: 246 x 174 x 107mm, 1.75kg
- Camera: 5-megapixel sensor
- Audio: 8-microphone array, dual 2-inch stereo speakers
The Echo Show is a touchscreen device with built-in Alexa and it can do everything the other Echos can but there's a built-in display to show you more information such as a full weather report, recipes and, even, the image from your Ring Video Doorbell. Skype support is also coming. The second generation introduced far punchier sound and a larger display, too.
Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition
- Price View at Amazon US - it's not yet available in the UK
- Dimensions: 38 x 90 x 90mm, 191g
- Audio: 0.6-inch tweeter
This is another version of the 2nd generation Echo Dot but it's tailored for use by children and has a colourful case (red/green/blue). It has a 2-year guarantee, so if it gets broken it will be replaced. The price premium is because it comes with 1-year of FreeTime Unlimited, which includes ad-free music, access to age-appropriate audio books, kids character alarms and apps - as well as things like explicit lyric filtering and voice shopping turned off.
Amazon Echo Spot
- Dimensions: 32 x 84 x 84mm, 163g
- Audio: Built-in speaker, 3.5mm stereo audio output
The Amazon Echo Spot is like a smaller version of the Echo Show. Or the Echo Dot with a 2.5-inch screen, if you like. It's designed as a bedside device really so Alexa can wake you up each day. Like the Echo Show it can be used to make video calls, with a front camera.
