These bundles pair some of the new hardware with a complementary device and help you save money. Many people will likely compare this price to Apple's forthcoming HomePod and opt for the less expensive device.

The new revamped $99 Echo speaker is a shorter and thicker version of its original Echo that started it all. It has an improved speaker system with a dedicated subwoofer and tweeter, as well as integrated Dolby sound.

Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new features and skills.

In the hands-on demo Amazon gave reporters after the on-stage presentations, the Spot wasn't taking Alexa voice commands, or playing music. Starting today, smart home camera support is available on all Fire TV devices and second-generation Fire TV Stick devices in the U.S. Simply say, "Alexa, show the nursery camera" to view the feed on your TV.
