    I am completely satisfied with my choice. I was torn between a few different models/companies. In the end I went with amazon echo spot. I use it every day and enjoy how beautiful it fits with my decor. My kids love talking to it and asking it questions. I. use it along with the smart plugs and control my bedside lamp and my LG smart tv. Everyone who sees my room is so impressed with how nice and smart it is. I would recommend this to anyone - any age.

    This is a great for my, this Echo Spot is my first stuff that I bought and It's my first time to use, because before I use radio alarm with too much interferences and audio distortion and I have to get up from my bed to turning off. Now only I have to say Alexa stopped and go to my work. Thank you Amazons corporation for make us the live more ease. Thank you so much. I love it.

    So I couldn’t wait to have my own Alexa, ever since I started using one at work . I knew that this speaker would be everything! And it really is great, small speaker that doesn’t take much counter space and plays all the music you desire! You can’t go wrong, thank you Best Buy for such a great product!

    Echo spot

    The echo spot, like the echo show are perfect for your smart home. Video calls are a plus with the echo spot. Connectivity to other products like the Ring door bell, smart thermostat, and other smart products make the echo spot a great buy for the money.

    Waiting for a newer generation seems worthwhile. Having a screen adds new features. Nice minimal size option. Enjoying overall; however, a few times Alexa/Echo seems to be ignoring me :)

    Screen looks good. Alexa's voice recognition works good. It's ridiculous how much this thing can do! My favorite thing is watching movie trailers, and listening to music on it!

    The best smart speaker

    Posted .

    I bought this echo spot after the price when down and it was a great addition to my other smart products in my house. The compact size looks very nice in the bedroom to use it as a clock, speaker, smart home voice command and even making phone calls. Easy to set up with your amazon account and Alexa app. One thing that I love about this product is been able to check my security cameras from the comfort of my bed with just asking Alexa. The sound is just like any other alarm clocks but if you want a better sound you can either plug in your 3.5 speaker or use a Bluetooth speaker. If you’re worry about this product having a camera in your bedroom , there’s a turn off camera on the settings and also you can buy a webcam cover.

    dangerous tech

    Thought the product was great, until I realized how Alexa can be intrusive. The eerie part is hearing back conversations that were never intended to be recorded (yikes)

    Great addition to Alexa family

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this for my husband to use mainly as an alarm clock as well as a medium for controlling smart home features. Prior to writing the review, I asked him questions about the ease of use, his user experience and how he likes the device (screen, sound, etc.) He expressed all positive comments, and noted that he is quite happy with this device. My husband is not tech savvy, and does not like using devices that he deems “too much trouble.” However, he is comfortable with the Alexa app and interacting with all of our Echo devices. This one is no different. Here are his main use cases: 1. As a M-F alarm clock. The Spot works very well for this purpose. Previously, he had been using an original Echo as an alarm, along with a separate digital clock. The Spot replaces both, and frees up the first gen Echo for another use in our home. While there aren’t a lot of clock faces, he chose one he likes, and set the Spot to use night mode. The screen is still visible at night, but not so bright as to distract from sleeping. The Spot is programmed to wake him every weekday. This is a simple one time set up. No need to “set” the alarm each night. It hasn’t missed a beat. The only time he needs to do anything is when he has a day off. In that case, he simply sets his M-F alarm to “off” in the Alexa app the night before the day off, then back on again the next day. He doesn’t have to mess with it again until the next time he has a day off. 2. Controlling smart home routines. We have various routines set up, including several that control lighting groups in various rooms. The Echo Spot, like other Alexa devices, works great to control these. 3. Checking weather and/or traffic before leaving for the day. 4. Listening to music on Pandora or Amazon Music. The Spot has a surprisingly decent speaker. We have an original Echo, two Dots and a Show as well as the Spot. I expected the sound to be on par with the Dots, but it’s quite better than that. Not bad at all. It’s more than adequate for enjoying some music while getting ready for work or unwinding before falling asleep. 5. Occasional drop-in. This feature works easily, and is very convenient. The screen on the Spot is good. Not great, but certainly good. We understood going in that it’s a small screen and that it has lower resolution than we find on devices such as our phones, tablets and TVs. But, the images are clear. And, we aren’t using this device to, for example, watch movie, after all. The screen is more than good enough for this device’s uses. All in all, the Spot has definitely filled its intended role (alarm clock) and then some. My husband was not sure he would like it (new thing to learn,) but his responses today when I asked how it’s working for him made it clear that the Spot was a good choice. Plus, Amazon continues to include more skills for Alexa, and these existing devices continue to improve and offer more features.

    Great product

    |
    Posted .

    I actually really like the concept of the product. It is fun just to play around with, but difficult to operate, which I'll go into detail about later. The spot is convenient for my 8 year old because it will show her pictures or text of the things she asks Alexa. She uses it to help her spell because it displays the word. The built-in hub on the echo plus isn't necessary, unless you plan on buying one smart light bulb are a time because the packs come with a hub free (an echo dot is sufficient and cheaper). The speaker quality is great for music and can be increased fairly loud without distortion. Now for the difficulty with operating. For starters, your echo doesn't have many bells and whistles prepackaged. You have to search skills, which are kind of like apps or lessons to teach Alexa. There are many different skills you can teach Alexa, so make sure you have time to look through them. Now you've taught Alexa skills, but for every skill you must remember how to communicate exactly as instructed on the skill page or Alexa will not understand (e.g. "Alexa, tell to perform such and such task). If you don't remember the phrases to get Alexa to perform the skill you can always look through your app and under skills to find directions. Who will remember all the specific wording for each skill? Plus, the whole point in speaking to Alexa is that it's hands-free, so looking at the app for directions isn't convenient. It gets very frustrating if you don't have the Alexa app handy. Next, if you plan on controlling plugs or lights with Alexa you have to download apps from the manufacturer. Your now cluttered phone is even more cluttered and you don't speak the same language as Alexa. She also has difficulty understanding a lot of questions and you have to rephrase them several times for her to give you any answer. I love, love, love the functions I can remember the wording for Alexa to perform the task. There are so many things Alexa can do that listing them would make this review entirely too long. I will list my favorites and most useful to me. Turns on lights or plugs. Groups lights, traffic report, weather, and many other functions together to be performed with one command (e.g. "Alexa, good morning"). Orders pizza. Tells jokes. Gives answers to questions you have. Controls TV. Sends messages and makes calls. Adds things to grocery lists. Sets reminders so you won't forget things. Adds appointments to your phone or email linked calendar. Helps kids with homework. Plays games for adults and kids.

    I have this in my craft room and it comes in very handy...when I need answers to measurements, etc...Alexa is my tutor! She always has the answer for me and in a matter of seconds...no more grabbing pen and paper or a calculator...very convenient. It is nice also for playing music...Amazon music is great! Also have it connected to the Ring Doorbell so I can see the front door from my desk! It is so nice to have the weather, time, and the ability to send messages to friends who also have Alexa..can make announcements to my family...we have Alexa devices in every room of the house! The ones with the screen are really nice cause you can actually see each other when you are talking..when I am out shopping I can drop in and talk to the ones at home through the app on my phone and we can see each other as well....This little spot is an amazing device...I love it and I wouldn't be without it...I even take it with me when I go on vacation and hook it up beside my bed...it is small enough I can put it in my carry on...highly recommend this little device!! I love mine... 5*s

    Easily Blends

    |
    Posted .

    I would review and rate this product more towards it being a voice assistant over its being a speaker. I purchased the white unit, and as a device, I say it's sleek and easily blends with furniture and house décor. It can even be discreet. It doesn't shout for attention, but when you do notice it, it has an appeal due to its size, form factor, and the screen. It is responsive and easily picks up voice activation commands. As for its Alexa feature, well, it doesn't perform any differently than the rest of the Alexa-enabled devices, and Alexa is Alexa. Love it or hate it. It's cool as a clock as well, and works nicely for displaying reminders and other information on the screen. You can use it for playing news clips, and other videos that are supported. There is also a separate accessory that you can buy that will serve as its base/stand. Adding that adds to the cool form factor and enables you to tilt the device. However, I noticed that if you tilt it backward, it reduces the sensitivity of the microphones to pick up your voice, I think because the mics now tend to point backwards. As a speaker, it's not too bad. The sound is not tinny, and has a bit of body and fullness to it. Just don't compare it with full-sized speakers. For casual listening, it has its uses. Overall, it is a good gadget you would like to bring in to your home.

    Fun and Simple to Use

    |
    Posted .

    We purchased an Echo Dot for my mom on Christmas and she loves it. After seeing advertisements for the newer Echo Spot, we thought it would be a great addition as well as a wonderful Mother's Day gift. She absolutely loves it. Of course I was tasked to set it up, but it was very simple to set up (easier than the spot. The touch screen display helps). Whether it's telling Alexa good morning or asking Alexa to set an alarm, or controlling smart home devices, the Echo Spot is a great tool for entertainment and convenience. It's perfect for those who enjoy a smaller device and the convenience of a display (video calling other Amazon Alexa and Echo users is amazing as well). No matter the age, no matter how technologically savvy one may be, no matter the interests, it's great for anyone, and that's something that can rarely be said about anything these days.

    Being used as an alarm clock and it has been working rather well. If the power goes out it knows the time when it comes back on. It also displays the the current weather and plays music And does all the other Alexa functions. It was a bit expensive compared to Other echo products but takes up very little room on the night stand.

    When I wanted to get my husband a smart alarm clock, I chose the Amazon Echo Spot. I selected the black color because it blends into the background while still having a clear, sharp display. He really enjoys the clock and regularly asks it for the time, weather and any questions, as well as using it as an alarm clock. While I think my Google mini is smarter on the questions, I can't fault the Echo Spot since it does everything else so well. It even greets him by name when he asks the time in the morning. But, I can't be jealous of a clock, or should I. lol All in all, I highly recommend this smart alarm clock.

    It was okay for me, I was looking for something more advanced. My little brother loves it though. It’s all the technology he could want. Read exactly what features are available and decide exactly what you are looking for in an assistant. I went and purchased the echo show right after this and love it.
