Less than a month before Prime Day, Amazon announced several new Echo speakers, including the 4th-generation Echo, which replaces the main Echo speaker. In addition to the new round shape of the Echo and the inclusion of Zigbee wireless technology, Amazon said, the revamped model includes audio improvements. It doesn’t ship until October 22, so we haven’t tested it yet, but when we do, we’ll add our thoughts to our Amazon Alexa guide.

Amazon has also updated the Echo Show 10 smart display by adding a screen that now follows you to keep you in frame during video chats.

The Echo Studio, Amazon’s best-sounding Alexa smart speaker, is sticking around, and we hope that it will have some good deals, too. If you want to build a whole-house audio system around Alexa, we think this is the speaker to get.

We don’t currently recommend the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4KHaving integrated Alexa can be great, but you can do that by pairing an Echo or Dot with one of our other streaming picks. We don’t love that the Fire TV interface prioritizes Amazon content and relegates Netflix and others, has less-accurate search and shows fewer results. The Fire TV interface also has ads on every page, while Roku has a single ad on the main page and the Apple TV and Shield TV don’t have ads at all.
