As if Amazon hadn't already released enough new Echo's in recent months, they have recently debuted what they call the 2nd generation Echo. It's honestly hard to keep up with all the different versions coming out, but this particular model is simply the update to the original Amazon Echo. This new one is much smaller (thought not nearly as small as some of the other options, like the Echo Dot), and comes in a variety of different appearances - at least seven, from heather gray fabric to oak finish. You can buy different shells and swap them out, changing the appearance at any time; maybe your room aesthetics just got a little better.
