I ma very happy with my purchase of this Ech Dot. I like how I can just ask Alexa to play my Sirrus Xm or any of my pod casts. I also like that I can pair my iPad to it and be able to hear and watch the news or any other program from my iPad while I’m in the kitchen. I love how the smart light bulbs pair easily to it and I can turn a light on in any room of the house. The biggest plus that I really love is the away feature. It acts like a security system. Alexa listens for any alarm for a smoke or CO detector or any sounds like breaking glass. She will notify me if something happens. Another plus is if you have multiple Echo dots you can play music through out the house and also announce things like dinner or if you have company that has come.
I have 2 of these 1 for me and 1 for my daughter. They blend in well on our desks big enough to notice but small enough to go unnoticed at the same time. I use it for time, temperature, alarms, timer, definitions, measurement conversions.....etc. Currently it is connected to our wifi lights and the ring door bell.
Great piece of technology, we use it as a communication device in the home between rooms, also for playing music in the home all at once in several rooms. It is a great addition to any home stereo system with its 3.5 mm output, I Have only begun to explore its many uses as in sharing weather and local and national news, sports reports. Entertainment such as trivia, music, jokes.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) ReviewThe fourth-generation Echo Dot speaker doesn't offer particularly impressive sound quality, but for $50, it's still the best basic gateway to Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) Review – Sphere of InfluenceAlexa is getting a fresh wardrobe for 2020, and the new Echo Dot (4th Gen) is going spherical just like its bigger Echo sibling. As always, the pitch is fairly straightforward: at $49.99, the Echo
A:AnswerYes you can and here is how if you ever need to
You can register two or more Alexa-enabled devices to one Amazon account. Once you do that, you must put them all on the same Wi-Fi network, and then you can get them set up for multi-room music using the Alexa app, which includes creating a group for them.
When ready, update and open the Amazon Alexa app on your mobile device, and then follow these steps:
Select Devices in the bottom left corner
Tap the + in the top right corner
Tap on Set Up Multi-Room Music, then "Continue"
Pick a name for your group or select one from the list. Tap Next
On the next page select the Echo devices to include in the group. Those unavailable will be greyed out. Tap save
Alexa will connect the devices creating the group
Once enabled, say: "Play [song or artist] on [Echo devices' group name]"
A:AnswerThe Echo Dot doesn't use any operating system. The initial setup process requires any smart phone or tablet (Android or iOS) to set up. After that, the device uses your wifi to connect to the internet.
A:AnswerVery loud if you have up to 100% just did as a test to see and I could her just talking 4 rooms away! I keep mine in my bedroom at 36% its next to my doorway and I can put music on and even listen music and hear in next room.
A:AnswerAlexa can play music through its own built in speaker or through a 3.5 mini plug cord if a cord is attached
to Alexa. When a cord is attached, Alexa can play through another device or speaker that has a 3.5 audio input port.
Alexa does not broadcast with Bluetooth, only from its own speakers or an attached cord.
A 3.5 mini cord is NOT included with Alexa. Cord must be purchased separately.
A:AnswerThe Echo Dot uses 110 V or 220 V depending on the wall adapter supplied with the Echo. An adapter proper for the country it is sold in is included in the package.
An adapter may be used to change to another voltage but the included Power Block is fairly large and might not fit some voltage adapters..
Devices sold in the USA use the included 110 volt adapter by plugging it into a standard wall socket.
The Echo has no battery so it must be plugged into a wall socket to work.
