At first, I was reluctant to talk to a hockey puck. Okay so I am old fashioned. I use smart sockets in some areas in my home. I have them connected to my phone. But I found out you could program the Echo Dot to them. I have gotten used to talking to it. I now command it to turn on and turn off certain things around my home. You can command it to guard your home. You can ask where your orders are. If you say good morning it will give you information as to what happened on that date years ago. You can joke with it too. The things you can do with it are endless.
I purchased the Ring Doorbell at Best Buy and the Echo Dot was included with the purchase. Thanks Best Buy! I love my Echo Dot! All you need to do is plug it in, get the app on your phone and follow the prompts.
I ask Alexa silly questions, I ask her to play music, tell me jokes, set up my alarm, set up reminders, I ask for the weather, the time, etc.
This was a gift for my granddaughter’s friend. He has MS and is confined in a wheelchair. He could use his arms a couple year’s ago, but only his fingers now. Echo has changed his life. He can talk on the phone and reach his family and friends. It was the best gift EVER.
This review is for the Amazon - Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - Smart Speaker with Alexa - Sandstone
I have this dot in my garage for when my hands are full or super dirty and I need lights on, or the worst song ever is playing and an emergency song skip is required.
I have it plugged into an old ups
I really like this speaker it can do a lot of things like in the morning i have an alarm to go to work when i turn off the alarm i set it up to tell me how is the traffic to work and tell me weather and if i want i could set it up to tell me also news, radio and more when i arrive From work i tell it to play music the sound is really good when im going to sleep i tell it to open sleep sounds or i say good night and it gives me a list of sounds it can make that will help me go to sleep i leave the sound the entire night it helps me go to sleep, I don’t have anything smart yet like light bulbs but if i did I would be able to do a lot more with this
This was the perfect size Alexa for my bedroom. I love the color scheme and it works great! I love my Alexa and Best Buy made my experience amazing!
Thank you, Best Buy! Curbside pick-up was easy and safe. Ill will be returning.

Amazon's third-generation Echo Dot puts on some weight and comes dressed in a warmer, more welcoming design. The result is a better-looking Alexa device with good enough sound quality to deserve being called a speaker. In our Amazon Echo DotFull Review

Amazon Echo Dot with Clock
Adding a simple display turns the third-gen Echo Dot into a great bedside alarm clock, but it can also be useful in the kitchen as it can also show timers. Here's our Echo Dot with Clock review.Full Review
With the proliferation of Alexa in all kinds of devices, support has pushed the assistant to grow increasingly self-sufficient, lessening the need for additional hubs with Echo devices. So, by its third generation, is the Echo Dot truly all you need?Full Review
A:AnswerYes you can set up the Echo on your acct/smartphone BUT if you call her using another Echo on your account in your house let's say, she will hear the Echo 'ringing' and will need to say, "Alexa, answer the call' for her Echo to pick up and start the speaker phone call from you. My 80+ year old mom can do this. Suggest you write the answer call phrase on an index card and leave it with her if needed, plus good to 'demo' the process with her on a landline and you on your phone, so you & she can see how it words and sounds.
A:AnswerFirst download the Alexa app on your device, then plug in your echo dot , the echo dot light will turn light red/orange while pairing with your phone then wait for the light to turn blue and Alexa will say hello , then follow the instructions on the Alexa app. On the app just add the device to your list and scan the unique scan code that’s include inside the echo dot box. After set up just ask Alexa anything.
A:AnswerYes. I setup my first 2 from my laptop. Now I have a Chromebook and setup the last one I purchased from it. I don't have the app on my phone because I use the phone primarily for work and want to keep my contacts private.
PS - use all 3, none of them went bad.
A:AnswerIn the Alexa app, you can create a group. When you click on devices, create a speaker group. Add the devices that you want to that group, Then, when you play a song, say "Play <Awesome song here> on the <Group Name> group". we have a group called everywhere and it plays on all of the echo dots.
