New Amazon Echo has Zigbee

Amazon has/is launching a new Echo speaker with Alexa which has Zigbee radio:

A larger Echo Plus adds a “home hub”, letting it control smart light bulbs and other third-party products without a separate data-linking device.

The Echo Plus - which is compatible with the Zigbee smart home protocol - costs £140/$150/150 euros.

I will be very interested to watch this.
Will it be the mythical Zigbee “one ring to rule them all”?
(My guess is no :slight_smile: )

Do you know whether Home-Assistant can access the devices added to Echo Plus?

Seconding this. Is Home Assistant likely to be able to see devices connected to the hub in the plus? Can it already? I can’t seem to find any information on this.
