Echo Connect will let you connect it to your landline/VoIP and Wi-Fi to let calls be handled through this tiny device.

To increase its lead further, Amazon threw out a big surprise this week by releasing six new hardware products. For its part, is expected to debut a smaller Home speaker and a pair of upgraded Pixel smartphones on October 4.
