Q: what is the difference between the 2nd gen & 4th gen?
A: Hi Maria1222, The Echo Second Generation has a few differences from the Fourth Generation. The Echo Second Generation had a 2.5" woofer and 0.6" tweeter where as the Fourth Generation has a 3.0” (76.2 mm) neodymium woofer and two dual front-firing 0.8” (20 mm) tweeters. Echo Second Generation did not have a built in Zigbee smart home hub, only the plus version did. However, the Fourth Generation Echo does have Zigbee hub already built in. The light ring on the Echo Second Generation was on the top of the device and on the Echo Fourth Generation it is located on the bottom. The shape of the Fourth Gen Echo is much more round instead of tall like the Second Gen. Alexa, your Echo's Voice Assistant, functions the same way and continues getting smarter everyday! The Second Generation Echo is no longer available for purchase and the Fourth Generation is the newest release of this device. Also, 98% of the Echo Fourth Generation device’s packaging is made of wood fiber-based materials from responsibly managed forests or recycled sources. Hope that helps!submitted byAmazon Devices Customer Support - 2 years agoBrand expert
