Amazon today announced the Echo Connect, a $34.99 device that plugs into a standard landline phone line and allows Echo speakers to make phone calls to anyone. The device lets Alexa use your existing phone service and number to make calls through an Alexa-powered speaker and can even be used to call 911 using only your voice, in the event you’re unable to get to a phone during an emergency. When calls come in, your Echo devices will notify you and give you the option to answer hands-free. The Echo Connect is compatible with all of Amazon’s new and existing Echo speakers. It can be pre-ordered today and will be released on December 13.
