At a special event in September Amazon announced a batch of new Echo products including the Echo Spot, but that device was available only in the US. The Echo Spot is now finally available in the UK, but what is it and why do you want one?

What is the Echo Spot?

Amazon's new Echo Spot is a cross between the Echo Show and Echo Dot, and can do everything either of those two products can do.

It has a 2.5in display, which usually serves for telling the time, but the Echo Spot can also be used for making hands-free calls and video calls.

Audio quality from the Spot won't be amazing, but you can hook up an external speaker via Bluetooth or AUX.

When is the Echo Spot release date?

The Echo Spot is now available in the UK as well as the US. You can buy the Echo Spot here.

How much is the Echo Spot?

The Echo Spot costs £119.99 in the UK, and $129.99 in the US.

Buy a two-pack and you can also save £40.
