Amazon has new hardware and software for us, from now on you can buy Echo Connect in Germany. We had already reported on the device during the last days, because the market launch in Germany has already been announced. The Echo Connect costs 39.99 euros and connects a classic telephone connection with your Alexa-enabled devices: classic telephony by voice command.

  • Connect your Alexa compatible device to your phone line and call any phone number by voice.
  • Echo Connect uses your existing phone service (landline or VoIP) to make and receive calls. (Your phone provider may charge you for this.)
  • Just plug the Echo Connect into a power outlet and your home phone jack and complete the setup in the Alexa app or at alexa.amazon.de.

The new Alex app is on the way

Amazon is definitely not doing us a favor with the current version of the Alexa app, the app loads incredibly slow and doesn’t look particularly modern. Now there is a major redesign, as it is now known. There is no update available to me yet, but there are already screenshots. First of all, the application looks more modern, there are probably no functional changes.
