Echo Dot 4 with integrated clock and temperature display
According to Amazon, Echo Dot 3rd Generation has been the most popular and sought-after Alexa speaker so far. No wonder, then, that today's presentation of Alexa novelties in Seattle should not miss a new version. We summarize all the facts already known about the Echo Dot 4.
Echo Dot combines all practical Alexa features in a small space
Echo Dot 3 has long been one of the absolute bestsellers on Amazon. Often, when the online giant reduces the price as part of promotions, Echo Dot is sold out even after just a few hours at many retailers.
On the one hand, this is due to the low purchase price and, on the other hand, to the enormous variety of functions. Because despite their compact size, thousands of Alexa Skills can be called up free of charge with the Echo Dots of all generations to individually expand the standard functions.
And even those who do not want to control Alexa-compatible devices, such as robotic lawnmowers or Wi-Fi washing machines, get Echo Dot, an intelligent gadget that reads news, plays music, tells jokes, manages to-do lists and much more.
Which functions distinguish Echo Dot 4 from other Alexa devices?
Visually, Echo Dot 4 is very similar to its predecessor. The difference lies in its ability to display the time, temperature or alarm directly on the housing via LED display.

Echo Show 8: More screen and better sound
As with many other proven Alexa devices, Amazon has made compared to its predecessor, even at Echo Show 8 only a few changes. For example, in the 8-inch version of the Echo Show, just like the Echo Show 5 , there is a sliding camera cover for more data security.
Likewise, the functionality of Alexa remains the same. Echo Show 8 masters neither more nor less skills than other Alexa speakers. But his display is much larger than its predecessor and he should offer even better sound.
We find Echo Show 8 particularly handy for making video calls, retrieving surveillance images, streaming movies or making it easier to answer knowledge questions by displaying footage. Thus, it offers a clear added value compared to Alexa speakers, which do without display.

Echo Show 8 is now available at Amazon for an RRP of 129.99 euros in white or black. Thus, Echo Show 8 ranks both in terms of size and price between the largest Alexa Display (Echo Show 2) and the smallest (Echo Show 5).
