It comes with a USB port to charge your phone or other small device without using an extra outlet, and it you can plug in an additional motion sensor or smart night light accessories to the bottom of the device.
The Echo Flex is available today for $25 and the attachable smart night light and motion sensor accessories are $14 each.
The Flex is Amazon's way of putting an Alexa speaker anywhere with a plug, letting you ask for things in your hallway or wherever a speaker can't fit.
