    Sound quality is the best I've heard on a speaker of this size!!! Definitely worth paying a little extra for this one over the 2nd generation model. I'm not going to discuss the functionality as there's tons of info already out there. One important note: If you set up the Alexa app on your phone, IT WILL IMPORT ALL OF YOUR PHONE CONTACTS. I didn't think I gave it permission to do so but Alexa did indeed import my contacts! You may have read stories how, WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE, Alexa can record what's being said in your home and then send it to ANY or ALL of those contacts! Yikes! And, I won't want any of my kids to accidentally send messages to or call people on my contact list. So, if you want to keep your contacts from Alexa and prevent that from happening here's how I did it: Before installiing the Alexa app on your phone, export your contacts to a file and save it for later. Then, go back to the phone and delete those contacts (don't worry, you'll import them back in later). Now, install the Alexa app on your phone and go through the set up process. At some point, you'll have the option to allow Alexa to automatically import any additions to your contacts. Please "disable" that option. After you're done with the installation, you won'tice there are no contacts in your Alexa app! Now, you can import your contacts back into your phonebook using the file that you initially created and you're good to go! If you already installed the app but want to delete your contacts from Alexa, it's not too late. Simply export your phone contacts to a file and save for later. Then, delete the contacts from your phone. Now, open the Alexa app and click "Contacts." On the Contacts page, click on "Import Contacts" and enable it by moving the button to the right side. This will cause Alexa to replace your existing contacts with the now empty phonebook. After a few minutes, your Alexa contacts will be gone. Go back and disable "Import Contacts" to prevent Alexa from importing them in the future. You can now import the contact file that you created back into your phone. Of course there may be some contacts you do want to use with Alexa. I simply added them manually by clicking "Add Contact." I hope this info is helpful as I wasn't able to find an easy way to manage Alexa contacts.

    So I was one of the early adopters of the original Amazon Echo when it first released many years ago. When Iearned about the Echo Dot, I could see why a smaller unit would be desirable (to have more than one around the home), but it seemed silly to me. Furthermore, the original Echo was touted for its strong speakers, so a smaller Dot (to me) wouldn't be able to produce audio quality anywhere close to the original Echo. As a result, I refrained from purchasing the Dot and figured it would benefit those who wouldn't want a larger Echo or wouldn't want to pay a higher price for it. It seemed like the Dots were on sale everywhere from Thanksgiving through Christmas (and beyond). I still wasn't interested, but when Best Buy did a daily deal on a Ring Pro + Chime that also included a free Dot, I bit on the Ring deal (but still wasn't interested in the Dot). However, once I got everything hooked up, my wife wanted to put the Dot in our bedroom for music and to be able to access some of the features we love about the Echo that sits in our kitchen. Plus, where the Dot can be linked to the Ring Pro doorbell, it is nice to be able to have Alexa notify us verbally of a door event. Within moments of getting the Dot set up, my wife was thrilled...and I was impressed. The Dot doesn't produce the power of the original Echo speaker-wise, but the Dot isn't trying to be an Echo. The Dot does, however, produce very good sound--much better, stronger, and clear than I anticipated. For its size, I am pretty amazed. My wife loves the ability to utilize the alarm, timer, and shopping list features (all without needing to head to the kitchen). Plus, learning that the Dot can be linked to the Echo, there is now an ability to get closer to a "whole home" speaker system experience. In fact, I purchased a third Dot a few days later for this very option. Add to all of this support for Apple Music (our preferred music provider), which (for us) was a thrilling development. The Dot isn't the unnecessary novelty I figured it would be (although it may still be a novelty). It has become a very happy addition to our home.

    I was pleasantly surprised by just how much this little guy\girl can do. I have never had any issues with this device recognizing my questions its always accurate and knows exactly what I am asking it. The one issue I have with it is unless you are a techy person you may never use it to its full potential because you may never really pick up on just how the "Skills" as Amazon calls them work. Basically you have to download an Alexa app on your phone and then setup the device but from there you have to download skills to really take advantage of this device, an example would be I downloaded a Fios Skill so that I am able to control my cable box with commands such as "Alexa watch AMC on Fios" The problem is setting up the skills for this to work I had to enable the Fios TV skill then I had to choose what cable box this device was going to control, well if you never named your cable boxes by the rooms they are in then you have to figure out the name the cable company gave your cable box. Anyways like I said once you get everything figured out its great. I have it tied to my calendar in Outlook, my cable box, my Fire TV, I use it to play music from Amazon "Apple Music is coming to this device soon" I ask it what my commute to work is like, what's the Weather today. As far as the Sound quality goes, this small device is perfect for a bedroom or office if you want good sound in a bigger room buy the ECHO or ECHO Plus its that simple.

    This was our first Alexa product. I was excited to see what all the hype was about, especially for the low price. It was a great way to get easy, voice-based music into our son's room. As a music player, it's awesome. It integrates well with Apple Music, and is much easier than connecting a phone to a Bluetooth speaker just to listen to music. It makes it a casual, spontaneous thing (instead of an intentional, dedicated activity we're far less likely to engage in). Alexa hears well and the Echo Dot sounds pretty good in a small room. It's nowhere near the sound quality of our HomePod -- but it was a fraction of the price. A few hang-ups, though... First, Alexa is great with general knowledge, but pretty poor when it comes to voice command flexibility. Siri on the HomePod understands conversational English far better (and variations of commands -- read: Siri seems to look for intent rather than a static catchphrase). When we use Alexa Skills designed for kids, it really stands out to me how limited the commands are. If we get them even slightly off, the games break. I should be able to say "sure" instead of "yes" and have it know that I'm giving an affirmative command. Alexa is also very finicky with smart home accessories. Sometimes she knows which light I want turned on/off and sometimes she has no clue. I wish it plugged into HomeKit. In general, the skills kinda stink. They're gimmicks. That aspect is disappointing. But as a very low cost and pretty good smart speaker for music in our kids room? This thing is great for that.

    Makes us Lazy

    We have enough items in our house to make buying an Alexa device practical. I have connected the following to our Alexa app: 1. Our car - remote lock and remote start by asking Alexa. 2. Our Roomba 3. Several TP-Link plugs 4. Our NEST thermostat 5. Our Ring security system You can also link it to apps that manage calendars and grocery lists. Therefore you can add to a list just by asking Alexa to do so when you think of it so you don't have to write it down. Oe of the main decisions I had to make was which version of the speaker do I need for listening to music? I considered the $400 Bose speaker but didn't want to spend that much. Then there is is the $180 Sonos speaker but you need 2 for stereo. But, here is the great part - this Dot will connect to my Bose mini soudlink that I already have giving me fantastic sound. I highly recommend going this route rather than buying an expensive speaker with Alexa built-in. If it is also important to have a screen then there is the Spot or Show for that. However, the Echo Dot understands me even when the TV is loud and performs whatever skill I ask of it. I decided on the Dot rather than the Google Mini simply because I am already an Amazon Prime member and have a Fire TV.

    Buggy, Muffled voice and not enough mics

    I had high hopes for the 3rd Gen Echo dot. I put mine in my Master bedroom, behind a table lamp (That is what I did with my previous echo dot (2nd Gen) and the Google home mini). I assumed this will work fine. But most times, the echo dot will not even respond. Either the mics on these are very low sensitivity or not enough. Now I have to keep the echo dot in line of sight to have any reasonable response. Even then I see 1 out of 5 wake words being ignored. Also, when there is a song or audio already playing on the echo, the wake word response is very low probability unless you are really loud. The sound was extremely muffled with high bass and much lower treble settings. This meant every time Alexa managed to respond to me, I had trouble making out the speech and tell her "I did not understand that" :). But those audio changes make the echo an awesome music playback device. There seems to be some form of software auto volume leveling going on, that is very unreliable. There were random change in the volume which was annoying at times. My biggest problem with the 3rd gen Echo dot was its lack of consistency with recognizing what I said. Most command recognition was almost a roll of dice. But the major reason I returned the echo dot, was the power supply design. This was bad design. Amazon decided to make their power adapter a non standard connector. This meant I cant use the tons of USB output power regulators, I have lying around in my house. Also in the age of USB type C, Amazon went a step back on their design. The reason maybe for them to avoid the use of non standard power supplies. But then that is a design flaw that they cant limit current drawn. The software app interface and set up was also a cumbersome process. This has been my qualm about amazon in general compared to their competition who seems to be picking up very fast.

    The Amazon Echo Dot 3rd generation is great

    • My Best Buy® Elite Member

    Back towards the end of 2018, I bought 2 of the Amazon Echo Dot 3rd generation for $50,00 at BB. When I got it home, I was surprised at the sound quality from such a little device because the sound quality is very good. I have used the device to listen to my radio stations on Pandora and my local FM music stations and my all news radio stations on the AM band. Note the device only works with your wifi; it is not a radio receiver. If you have an amazon music library you can play the music you have on amazon.com. I have used the device with some smart plugs to turn on and off electric heaters. It is a very useful device since you can ask it all kinds of questions, and it responds like Apple Siri or Google Assistant. I liked it so much, I went to BB 2 more times, each time buying 2 at a time for $50.00. I have a total of 6 of these devices in different rooms of my house: Living Room, Kitchen, 2 Bed Rooms, Bathroom where I can use it as a shower radio, and a Game Room. When you can get the device at BB 2 for $50.00 or 2 for $60.00 ($30.00 each), it is an especially good value. The device responds to queries/commands directed to Alexa, and Alexa is getting smarter all the time by amazon adding "skills" to what she can do. I opted for the Echo Dot in Charcoal which is very attractive. Final comments: What sold me on the device in the first place was the review on youtube by Craig's Tech Talk...On youtube look for "New Amazon Echo Dot 3rd Generation - Unboxing and First Impressions" where you can find out all about the device and see and hear how great it is.

    Fantastic Promo Item

    We got this as a free item with purchase. It was very easy to setup and operate and our whole family has enjoyed using it. The sound quality is really good and I have been impressed by how far away I can stand and speak in a normal voice and it still hears me (as in telling a child what to say to Alexa kind of far away and Alexa hears me and does what I said so the child doesn't have to repeat it). When you activate a skill you do have to pay attention to the exact language that you need to use to activate the skill. In terms of smart speakers, I wasn't necessarily in the market for one because our phones have very good voice activation that really meets that need for us, but since this one was free with purchase, I will say it is nice to have the speaker for our family. Alexa listens to anyone who says her name, whereas my phone only listens to me, that means Alexa can entertain my kids screen free or answer their questions (great for checking math homework and random questions they have that I would normally ask my phone on their behalf). We don't have any smart devices (besides the doorbell it came with that won't work with this model because it doesn't have video), so we haven't really maximized our use of it yet (I'm thinking a smart plug for the Christmas lights), but we really are enjoying it so far even if it isn't vital. The thing I most often use it for is playing music when I'm cooking or cleaning. It would make a great gift for the person who has everything but one of these.

    Surprisingly good sound for such a small speaker

    I own several 2nd generation Dots and have been using them for a couple of years. All of them are connected to external speakers because the sound quality isn't good for music. But this 3rd generation model is a big step up in sound quality, and on sale, it's a really good value. I bought one on sale and was so impressed with the sound, I bought a second one (also on sale) so I could set up what Amazon calls a "stereo pair". Using the Alexa app on your smartphone, you pair the two devices (they must be the exact same Echo model) so that they offer real left-right stereo. This works with the streaming music services which the device supports. It does not work with Audible books, but stereo isn't really important to me for audiobooks. The stereo sound is really good for two small speakers with a total cost of about $60 (on sale). It'sn't as good as two full-sized Echos, of course, but at more than half the price and such a small footprint, it's very impressive. You aren't going to get room-shaking bass or crystal clear highs, but you also won't get annoying distortions, even at louder volumes. The device is larger than the previous generation, but still small enough to go almost anywhere and be very unobtrusive. I think it's the best value in the Echo line.

    Great upgrade from previous Echo Dot

    While this is larger than the previous Echo Dot, the rubber like material on top and the mesh wrap around is a step up. The sound quality and increase in volume level is what I found to be the biggest improvement... That said, I feel that there is no true mid level volume. My experience is that if I'm looking for that "sweet spot" it doesn't exist, as it's either quieter than I'd like it to be or louder than I'd like it to be. I did purchase two Dots for one room for the purpose of stereo sound. This is where I believe Amazon fell short. For the last few years, I've been able to use a pair of very inexpensive Bluetooth wireless speakers at the same time for listening to music from my cell phone & laptop. With the Dot, you are limited as to what will play in stereo and what won't. I feel as if I've taken a step back in time with respect to technology as relates to this issue. My only other hope for future Dots is that they make them waterproof. Again, I've wireless Bluetooth speakers that I can attach via suction cup to my shower wall. I'd like to be able to take advantage of the smart home I've created, forged on the foundation of the Echo Dot when I'm in the shower, or anywhere there might be water. Bottom line, for the price you can't beat it. Amazon has made improvements. I'm hoping for refinements with the next generation Dot.

    A headache

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I was initially very excited to receive my echo dot and thought I got a great deal for it. Upon its arrival I was impressed by its look. Once I began setting it up in my college dorm it gave me a headache since the Alexa App runs so slow. Then, things got worse when I tried connecting my echo dot to the WiFi. This product is not university WiFi friendly, I had to use my cellphone's hotspot to set it up. Well after 15 minutes I finally got it running. I decided to link my Spotify account to it and it worked very well, the sound quality was pretty good for its size. After 8 minutes of listening to music Alexa decided to run an update without permission, completely disrupting my music. I waited about 10 minutes and decided to give it a shot to get it running again, but Alexa kept saying "I'm sorry, I'm having trouble understanding you. Please try later." I unplugged it and plugged it back in again but I had the same response from Alexa. I'm surely returning this product ASAP because I'm truly disappointed in the efficiency of the Alexa App and the user friendliness of both the app and echo dot. I hate having no control over what the "smart" speaker does. It truly felt like Alexa was in control all the time. I do not recommend this product to anyone.

    The older echo dot has been the ugly stepchild of the Amazon Echo lineup. Not because it was particularly bad at what it does best (Virtual assistant) but because of how laughably bad it sounded. The good news was that you could connect a separate speaker using a 3.5mm adapter or Bluetooth but this was cumbersome and unless it was stationary, there was always that one extra step of connecting to it to a speaker that would get annoying. Anyway, out with the old and in with the new. This new echo dot sounds spectacular. Relatively deep bass and not overly punchy but present miss and highs. The volume also loud enough to fill a small room all while being able to hear your commands from accords the room. You still have the 3.5 and Bluetooth option but unless you have a really nice speaker you won't really need to use those features. The only " negative" thing I could say about it is the removal of the micro USB port. This was cool for connecting it to the car or a portable charger. There were also several accessories that used that port that will no longer work with the new dot. That being said I love this product. The setup is much easier and the sound alone makes this an easy buy.

    I purchased one for my living room. It got nonstop usage for over two weeks. My kids were in love with it. My teenage nephew even took it in his room a few times to use it. So I got him one for Christmas. My kids got a Google Home Mini from a family member. But it proved to be too difficult for a 4 and 6 year old to operate. It required too many apps to operate the same way the Echo does. I dont like having too many subscriptions. And the Home Mini required just that. So we exchanged it for another Amazon Echo. Easy set up. Easy to set routines for my kids like bedtime and alarm setting. I also like the Parent Mode that controls what they can listen to. No need for the kids version Echo. This works just fine. They can also call me when Im out, no phone required. Im gonna regret that later lol. But its a nice feature as I dont want them to have cell phones at this age. Sound quality is just as good as a house phone. It has a nice modern, simplistic style. Everyone loves it. The Google Home Mini was much harder to set up on the app. The customization on the Home Mini was much more complicated. I found myself downloading more and more apps, just to make it function. All the apps I have for my Echo is Tidal for music, and Amazon Alexa. We're up to 3 Echos. I'll get another one when we get a bigger house lol. But maybe one more wont hurt. I recommend this for anybody. Kids as well.

    If you are getting into the smarthome world, this is should really be your first buy. It has incredible functionality in a small package for a really reasonable price. I was hesitant to buy an echo dot for a couple of reasons at first. The original and 2nd gen. echo dots has horrible horrible sound quality. I mean truly atrocious. I am a bit of an audio snob that prefers Bose products and I promise I know what I am talking about when in comes to sound quality. However! When I heard the 3rd gen. echo dot I was pleasantly surprised. It still isn't fantastic, but it is about 300% better than the old dots. So that sound stuff, moving onto smarthome features. My Echo dots (yes plural, I now own three) control my smarthome and act as a mini-hub for me. I control my bulbs, outlets, and music all from Alexa, which has worked great for the past couple months. I also use Apple HomeKit just in case I want to use my phone to control lights and such but that is just a personal preference. The echo dot 3rd Gen. has so much functionality that I haven't even tapped into yet and am excited to keep exploring. Highly recommend. And for 40 bucks it is pretty much a steal. I also recommend getting 2 of these because the stereo pairing ability is fantastic stuff, I use it all the time.

    Big sound in a small package

    I was skeptical about what kind of sound experience the Echo Dot would provide. When you look at it, the first thought is, wow, this is small. It isn't terribly bigger than a hockey puck, but the sound it produces is pretty impressive. The size of this speaker really works to it's advantage. It won't get knocked over, it's very discreet to a point that you usually don't even notice it's there, until you start up the music. Of course, since this is a smaller speaker, you are not going to get the bass impact like you do from it's big brother the Echo. However, when you have a Dot paired with an Echo, they compliment each other quite nicely. The price point on this device is great. I was able to pick a couple of the Dots up during the Holidays for $25 a piece and for that price these are a steal!!! Even at the regular price of $49, you are getting a quality speaker with enough functionality through the Alexa app to make it a worth while purchase. If heavier bass and volume are your thing, then go with the bigger Echo, otherwise, you can't go wrong with the Dot if you are looking for a way to break into the world of Alexa. The Dots are currently 2 for $50, which makes this a no brainer purchase in my opinion. Go get some!

    Improvement over Gen 2

    I have an echo dot (gen 2) and I use them throughout the house for just about everything, being I have a fairly smart home. What I liked about the gen 2 versions, were that they were compact and very flexible on how you could use them. They were easy to mount in different positions and you could really be flexible on how and where you mounted them. The one thing that they really missed on? The well known sound quality. Enter the Gen 3... I really like the improvement in sound. Sure it is not a high quality speaker system, but for the size it is pretty good. Especially when you consider that you can pair them and add a sub for pretty good sound. The look is improved over the gen 2, however it does lose a little bit of the customability that the gen 2 had. With the gen 2, you could purchase different wraps, stands, clock mounts, wall mounts, etc. You could really customize it. The gen 3 is a bit bigger and has a much more rounded shape. it lacks the ability to really customize it. It surely would not work as a power socket mount, like you could do with the gen 2, just due to the additional weight.

    Personally, I am fairly deeply immersed in the Google Assistant environment. I bought this for my parents, as they have an Amazon Fire TV Stick to stream live TV via Playstation Vue. For that use case, the Echo Dot works great, as you can easily link the Dot to the Fire TV Stick to tune to different channels on PS Vue, watch a certain movie on Prime Video, etc. I also like the Xbox integration, and the speaker's sound quality is pretty impressive on the new generation for how small it is. That being said, the Echo's capabilities can be limited in some areas. For example, shortly after I set the device up, the Dot's light ring began to glow orange. I didn't know what that meant, so I decided to experiment and ask the Echo. "Sorry, I don't understand" was the response from the Dot. I asked my Google Home the same question, and it listed what each color of the light ring on the Dot indicated. Sometimes it seems like the Dot can't even return an answer that only requires a simple internet search. The bottom line to me is- if you're integrated into Amazon's ecosystem, or there are specific skills that the Echo can perform that the Google Home devices can't, then I'd recommend the Echo Dot. For most people, I'd lean toward the Google Home environment.

    First off, this is not the normal Amazon Echo so the sound is not quite as good, but it is still an amazing device. I upgrade from the 2nd Generation Echo Dot and I am amazed by the improvements. The 3rd gen Dot is worth the price even when not on sale. The sound coming from this little device is amazing for such a compact system. Deeper base than the previous version as well as highs. This is perfect for an office, dorm, or bedroom. It works well in a home kitchen, but I find the full sized Echo to sound better when competing with the sounds of cooking and the overhead range. If you are interest in having an adorable Echo connected to your more expensive sound system, this is a perfect purchase. In addition, the 3rd Generation Echo Dot is capable of connecting to nearly any Bluetooth speaker or headphone. I have personally pared them to my Bluetooth Bose AE2 SoundLink Headphones for a more "considerate-of-others" listening experience. I have also connected this Echo Dot to my Bose SoundLink Mini II portable speaker to play music while sitting outside by the firepit. My final thoughts are simply this; "You Won't Be Disappointed!"

    I already had a 2nd Gen Dot, which I purchased 2 years ago. I really wanted a Ring doorbell, and saw that the 3rd Gen Dot was free with the purchase of a Ring. I snagged that deal! I put the 3rd Gen in my bedroom and wasn't expecting much. I was WRONG! The sound quality is, hands down, 110% better than the 2nd Gen Dot. Plus, it is much more responsive. I have it on my headboard, and use it for Sleep and relaxation sounds. It's wonderful because I don't have to listen to my husband snore anymore. lol I also like the fact that it doesn't interfere with the other Dot that is in my kitchen. Plus, when I play my Amazon Prime music on it, and connect it via Bluetooth to my Samsung Stereo bar, it doesn't drop out, or lose connection like the 2nd Gen did. I will be using it much more now.

Simple to set up and use-plug in, open the Alexa app, and start using your voice. With 4 far-field microphones, Alexa hears you from across the room. And with compatible Echo devices in different rooms, you can fill your whole home with music. No smart home hub required-set up routines and schedules through the Alexa app. Amazon Smart Plug is for indoor use only, works exclusively with Alexa, and must be connected through a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network.

    I would recommend this to a friend
