Update: Amazon announced a number of new devices and feature updates Thursday, confirming the reports we discussed on this episode. Read the full story.

Amazon is reportedly working on several new Alexa devices to be announced in the coming weeks. They include a subwoofer, an in-car gadget and — the device getting the most buzz so far — a microwave.

Is this a new era for the Alexa ecosystem? We debate on this episode of Geared Up.

Plus, we take a look at the latest Nintendo Labo release, the third installment in the gaming giant’s DIY cardboard peripherals. We also talk about the new Switch Online service, which launched this week.

And finally, after a week to mull it over, we have some new thoughts and ideas about the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, including why the XR might not actually be the budget phone that everyone sees it as.
