Features

 

Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker-it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more-instantly.

Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word "Alexa" and Dot responds instantly. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).

Sleek and compact design makes Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or use Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and shop tens of millions of Amazon products using just your voice.

Echo Dot can also directly connect to speakers using a 3.5 mm stereo cable, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi for compatible wireless speakers to add voice control to your home stereo system in the living room or den. With multi-room music support and connected speakers via cable, you can play music across multiple Echo devices.

 

Echo Dot provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music-just ask for your favorite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. You can also search for music by lyrics, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for you. Set a music alarm to wake up to your favorite song or playlist. Listen to any song with Amazon Music Unlimited.

Echo Dot also provides hands-free voice control to Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn.

With Echo Dot, you can talk to almost anyone hands-free-no tapping or searching required. Use the Drop In feature when you want to connect instantly with compatible Echo devices in your home. For example, you can ask someone for help with a chore, or remind the kids to go to sleep-without having to raise your voice. With Alexa Announcements you can also use Echo Dot to broadcast a quick, one-way message to all other Echo devices in your home.

Making calls with Alexa is easy. Your contacts will see your number when they receive the call so they know who is calling. Set up your voice profile and teach Alexa to recognize your voice. When you say, "Alexa, call Mom", Alexa will call your mom, even if you have multiple users in your home. Additionally, you can send messages via voice or text to anyone with a supported Echo device or the Alexa App.

Use Echo Dot to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favorite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie-all without lifting a finger.or even raising your voice. Control multiple devices at scheduled times or with a single voice command, like locking the doors and turning off the lights when you go to bed.

Echo Dot works with smart home devices such as lights, switches, TVs, fans, thermostats, and more from Philips Hue, TP-Link, Sony, ecobee, WeMo, SmartThings, Insteon, Lutron, Nest, Wink, Honeywell, and more.

 

Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. With a more powerful processor, the Echo Dot has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any direction-even in noisy environments or while playing music.

When you want to use Echo Dot, simply say the wake word, "Alexa," and Dot lights up and streams audio to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service is leveraged to recognize and respond to your request instantly.

Echo uses tens of thousands of skills and counting. Skills are like apps and help you do more with your device, like test your trivia knowledge with Jeopardy!, find your inner Zen with Headspace, track your fitness with Fitbit, fall asleep to ambient sounds, play games, and more. It's easy to get started - just say "Alexa, help me get started with skills."

New skills are being added all the time. Discover skills and see ratings and reviews in the skill section of the Alexa app or by visiting the skill homepage. You can also create your own custom Alexa responses in minutes by using Alexa Skill Blueprints to create your own Alexa Skills.

Turn Alexa into a kid-friendly DJ, comedian, and storyteller. Enable Amazon FreeTime in the Alexa app to unlock specific features on your Echo Dot designed with kids in mind. Parental controls in the online Amazon Parent Dashboard let you set daily time limits, review activity, or pause Alexa on the device. Parents can filter explicit songs from Amazon Music, and voice shopping is turned off to help prevent unexpected purchases. FreeTime is available on Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Plus at no additional charge.

With a FreeTime Unlimited subscription (starting at $2.99/month), you get hundreds of hours of fun and educational content, including premium kids skills from brands like Disney and Nickelodeon, ad-free radio stations and playlists, over 300 Audible books, including Beauty and the Beast, and more.

With the free Alexa App on Fire OS, Android, iOS, and desktop browsers, you can easily setup and manage your Echo Dot. Use the Alexa App to connect music services you already use like Spotify and Pandora. Link your calendar from Google, G Suite, iCloud, Outlook.com or Office365. Setup your smart home devices from Philips Hue, TP-Link, ecobee, WeMo, SmartThings, Insteon, Wink, Nest, Lutron, and more.

Make calls, view your conversation history, manage contacts, and get notifications when you receive a message (calling and messaging features available on iOS and Android only). See which books are available to read from your Kindle and Audible libraries. View shopping and to-do lists while on the go. Control your timers and set custom tones for your alarms, and much more. The Alexa App is also where you discover third-party skills.

AMAZON Echo Dot (2nd Generation)

11 June 2019
This is the second Echo Dot I have bought and I primarily use them for voice control of my Sonos music system.

This one lives in my workshop and also doubles as an intercom which is very handy. The sound quality on my Echo Dot 3rd generation is a little better but as I don't use either to play music that is not an issue for me.

Good little product

16 April 2019
it works like the big Echo, good little product, but the speaker quality and volume quality isn't as good as the large echo. It does the job and services the bedroom end of the house.

Voice Fidelity is top notch

21 March 2019
One of the main reasons I purchased this was because I needed a new alarm clock.
One thing I was concerned about was waking in the morning and having to use the voice activation in a strong monotone voice for it to recognize me. NOPE! I can groggily, half awake mumble "Alexa, stop" and she recognizes me, stops the alarm, and makes me late for work! Its Perfect!

Great Intro to Automated Assistants

13 December 2018
Great entry level product into the world of Virtual Assistants. Great range for such a small device. Music sound quality and volume is decent for this size speaker, however would recommend connecting to an external speaker if you are primarily getting to play music (though good enough for general listening).

Requires a more structured use of phrases and requests compared to Google Home type products, but also has better home automation integration than the competitor.

Overall a great little product at a great price.
