The Echo Show has had on-demand services for some time but now Hulu is bringing their live TV streaming service to Amazon's newest Echo Show.

The event is live right now and Express.co.uk is in the United States to bring you full updates as they happen and here's what's been announced so far.

The reporting team at MySmartPrice has finally uncovered the complete specifications of this speaker along with its screenshots. Yet the fast-growing market has seen a whole slew of new players grabbing for a piece of the pie, causing Amazon's market share to slip to 41 percent in Q2 2018, down from 76 percent a year prior.

What sets this apart from the Amazon Echo Show?

A source suggests that the 7-inch LCD display will feature touchscreen capabilities along with a large speaker.

The latest Echo Show has been "completely redesigned" with dual side-firing 2in Neodymium drivers and a passive bass radiator promising improved sound quality. If you still want a full-sized Echo though the Echo Plus ($150) also got an upgrade with better sound, voice control without Wi-Fi, and a temperature sensor for, say, turning on fans when it's hot.

Amazon also launched new features for the company's personal assistant, Alexa. Here's everything Amazon announced today.

A new (second-gen) Echo Plus is also on the horizon. This device can be paired with an Echo or Echo Plus device, or if you have two Echo or Echo Plus models, you can get stereo 2.1 sound. You essentially connect the two together via Bluetooth and the Alexa companion app.

More Echos make sense for the company. The source for the pricing details comes from Home Depot, a place where Google Home products are sold, and the source also confirms that the official listing for the Google Home Hub is already ready.

We've been hearing talks about a Google-branded, display-equipped smart home device powered by the Google Assistant for several months. This means you can now conduct Skype calls on your Echo device in addition to the Drop In and voice calls.

Amazon has announced a bunch of new gadgets to boost up its smart automation lineup.

The other product spotted is the Amazon Smart Plug, which allows you to add Alexa voice control to any electrical socket. It can deduce if you're at home, then unlock your door and turn your house's lights on if you have a smart door and smart lights connected to it.
