Leak? Strategic marketing leak probably. Splitting hairs aside, I’m interested in the new device. I like and use my echo devices a lot.

Same here. Plus we have a relative who uses hearing aids and just is not able to understand echo responses at all. We’ve been really hoping that Amazon will come out with a video alternative she could use.

I never even thought of that side of it. It’s wonderful how all these technologies can help us all in so many ways. I was thinking of how useful it would be if a device could be assigned to check on people who need special care by asking them to respond to a request by say an Amazon echo, maybe even having them manually walking up to a panel to enter a simple response, then having echo forward the results along with a photo of the responder.
