Amazon’s Echo speaker has been a smash hit.
This intelligent device has sold millions across the globe and there’s plenty of reasons why fans love it.
Its relatively low price along with a swathe of smart features has made this a must-have gadget and things could be about to get even better.
The standard Echo hasn’t been upgraded since 2017 but a refresh could be inbound.
Over the past few years, Amazon has held a major launch event at its Seattle HQ.
In 2017 the online retailer revealed the updated Echo which featured improved audio and more subtle design.
And in 2018 fans were treated to a better Echo Dot and new devices including the very cheap Echo Input, sound-boosting Echo Sub and rebooted Echo Show with a much larger display.
There’s no word on whether Amazon will hold a similar event this month but there could be a clue to an update coming soon.
Amazon is currently showing the Echo is unavailable with the firm also stating, “We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.”
That may suggest something new is coming and it could be soon.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens but don’t expect any news soon as Amazon is always incredibly secretive about when its launch events are being held.
Although we don’t know anything more about a new smart speaker there is still plenty of things th current can do via voice search.
