Would you let an Amazon robot into your house?

Would you let an Amazon robot into your house?

According to reports, Amazon's robot is known internally as "Vesta", and was originally meant to be shown off this year, although it's supposedly not yet ready to be mass-produced. The demo models are cylindrical and wider than the current Echo so as to fit in at least four tweeters.

Amazon is planning a new version of its popular Echo smart speaker, according to a report by Bloomberg.

It is called Vesta, and is it is supposedly one of the things being developed by Amazon's Lab126 research and development division located in Sunnyvale, California.

Amazon declined to comment when reached by Business Insider. It's unclear exactly when Amazon plans to introduce the new Echo, but we will probably see it sometime this Fall, which is when the company is also expected to introduce minor updates for the rest of the Echo line. However, it has lost some ground to the Sonos One, Apple Inc. Alexa is about the waist-high, navigate with the help of an array of computer vision cameras and also responds to voice commands.

The Echo, which went on sale in 2015, will get 63% of the us market this year, as per EMarketer.


Amazon Prime Day is about to be in full swing, but we're dropping you an early deal that is just too good to pass up. However, it also says Amazon may choose never to release the product. However, in spite of Amazon's efforts to build the highest market share, Google is still taking lead with around 31% share.

Amazon previously has worked on improving the Echo's sound by offering a separate subwoofer and a device that connects the speakers to a stereo.

Amazon is supposedly taking a shot at a higher-quality rendition of its mainstream Alexa-based Echo brilliant speaker to legitimately compete Apple's HomePod and other excellent savvy speakers. Amazon could still decide not to proceed with the new high-end Echo.

A hint about an Amazon robot came a few months ago.

That new Echo is bigger than what we've now got in part because it needs space for more hardware.
