Echo has just got smarter. Echo Plus is a voice controlled speaker that connects to Alexa Voice Service to play music, ask questions, make calls, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly. Additionally, Echo Plus has a built-in hub that allows you to connect all Alexa-enabled devices without the need for a separate smart home hub.
