Amazon's Echo Dot is one of the most accessible smart speakers on the market, and now it's getting even better. At the company's secret event at its HQ in Seattle, Amazon unveiled its third-generation Dot.
The new Dot has a similar footprint compared to the second-gen model but now features a fabric design that looks a lot homier than the hard plastic that was used before. It honestly looks like the love child of an Echo Dot and Google Home Mini, and to be honest, we're not complaining about that at all.
One area where the Home Mini easily outperformed the second-gen Dot is in sound quality, but with gen-three, that's something Amazon's hoping to change. The new Echo Dot boasts a 1.6-inch driver and is rated to be 70% louder than the previous model with much clearer audio.
You can purchase the Echo Dot starting today for $49.99.
