Amazon has announced the launch of Echo Dot 5th Gen with improved audio, Ultrasound Motion Detection, temperature sensor, and tap gesture controls.
Echo Dot 5th Gen claims to deliver clear vocals and up to double the bass of the previous generation—all within the same size and spherical form factor. Customers can just ask Alexa to play their favorite songs from free and subscription-based music streaming services such as Hungama, Spotify, JioSaavan, Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music, and others. Customers can also play music from their smartphones on the Echo Dot via Bluetooth.
With its Ultrasound Motion Detection, customers can automate their day by creating smart home routines such as have Alexa turn on compatible-lights or play music when you enter the room.
The new Echo Dot comes with an in-built temperature sensor that can sense room temperature. Customers can use this feature to set up helpful routines such as automatically turn on compatible-AC when it gets too warm inside or turn it off when it gets too cold—a perfect feature to sleep comfortably.
Echo Dot 5th Gen has an accelerometer that enables tap gesture controls, so customers can simply tap the top of the device to pause and resume music, dismiss timers, or end Alexa-to-Alexa calls.
Powered by the AZ2 Neural Edge processor, Echo Dot enables more experiences to be processed on the edge— resulting in even faster Alexa responses and tap gestures.
Echo devices are designed with privacy in mind and include multiple layers of privacy controls. Echo devices include a microphone on/off button and the ability to view and delete your voice recordings.
Echo Dot 5th Gen is priced at INR 5,499, and will be available at an introductory price of INR 4,999 during Alexa’s anniversary celebrations on 2nd, 3rd & 4th March’23 on Amazon, and online and offline stores of Croma, Reliance Digital, Poorvika, and others. Echo Dot 5th Gen comes in three colors: Black, Blue, and White.
