Amazon is working on a wall-mounted Echo and a TV sound bar, along with updates to its car technology and wearable devices, according to a Bloomberg report Friday that cites internal documents and sources familiar with the matter.
Amazon could expand its lineup of smart screen Echo Show devices. The company is planning an Alexa-controlled Echo with a roughly 15-inch display that can be mounted on a wall or placed on a stand, according to the report. It could serve as a control panel for smart home devices and be placed in the kitchen to show recipes or other helpful information, the report said.
