Amazon Echo is one of the best smart “home assistant” devices money can buy, giving you a better and smarter living experience. It can be controlled by your voice, via Alexa, in similar ways as Apple Siri.
Amazon Echo plays music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio and TuneIn. It supports Alexa calling and messaging, a new way to be together with family and friends. Just ask Alexa to call or message anyone with an Echo, Echo Dot, or the Alexa App. And of course it plays music too, with multi-room capability together with other Echo devices.
Basically, Amazon Echo allows you to experience the ever growing features of Alexa to the fullest extent. For instance, it answers questions, reads the news, reports traffic and weather, reads audiobooks from Audible, gives info on local businesses, provides sports scores and schedules, controls Amazon Video on Fire TV, and more using the Alexa Voice Service.
Amazon Echo even controls lights, fans, TVs, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, locks, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Sony, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, and others.
We are impressed with how well Amazon Echo works, and we highly recommend it for your home. Before making your purchase decision, take a look at Google Home.
