Amazon held a September 2018 Devices event in Seattle today, a 1.5-hour reveal of everything new the company has to offer to shoppers. The event marks the largest number of devices and features Amazon has ever launched in a day, and there was certainly a lot to take in.
With the introduction of 12 additional Alexa-compatible devices, it’s clear that Amazon wants to make its virtual assistant more prevalent in the home than ever. If there’s a task you want to accomplish in your living room, kitchen, or car, Alexa can most likely take care of it for you.
Here are all the new devices that Amazon unveiled today, including new editions of existing devices, accessories that add Alexa to your favorite home tech, and even a small kitchen appliance, and what they do.
Most are available for pre-order and ship in October or November, while it’s unclear when others will be available for purchase and you’ll have to sign up with your email for updates.

Amazon’s most popular device costs the same as the previous iteration but gets a speaker upgrade (from a 1.1″ driver to a 1.6″ driver) so it’s now 70% louder.
New Echo Plus
The new Echo Plus boasts sound improvements like stronger bass and clearer sound; a sensor that triggers routines based on the room’s temperature; and voice control options that still work when your Internet isn’t working. It also has a built-in Zigbee smart home hub to make it easier to set up compatible smart home devices.
New Echo Show
Another device enjoying better features at the same price is the Echo Show, which now features a 10-inch HD display and an eight-mic array. Sound and image quality are more crisp, and you’ll be able to voice commands to Alexa even as music is playing.
