Not bad...So fun...The reason I didn't give this 5 starts is because it is still limited, one of the best on the market but not for long, I may switch to the Google Home as it can play the same music on multiple speakers throughout the house and integrates with Smartthings which is what everything in my house communicates through anyway....I bought a second one after learning that the Echo Dot can pair via Bluetooth with my laptop and relay the audio to the connected stereo in my home office (I don't believe they advertise this function, but it works well and connects automatically when I wake my computer)....I got it during black Friday for 40 so makes it even sweeter.
Deliver your favorite playlist anywhere in your home with the Amazon Echo Dot voice-controlled device. Control most electric devices through voice activation, or schedule a ride with Uber and order a pizza. The Amazon Echo Dot voice-controlled device turns any home into a smart home with the Alexa app on a smartphone or tablet.
Love it...Love !...The reason I didn't give this 5 starts is because it is still limited, one of the best on the market but not for long, I may switch to the Google Home as it can play the same music on multiple speakers throughout the house and integrates with Smartthings which is what everything in my house communicates through anyway....I use them to set my daily alarms, give me the time, news briefings, add to my shopping list, to do list, listen to music, tell bedtime stories to my grands, turn my lights on/off using my voice or when I am away from home by my cell phone, add to my calendar, spell words and other etc things I don't know....I figured Echo Dot especially at the price I purchased it for during the Black Friday sale was a great buy.
Interact with Alexa anywhere in your home with the Amazon Echo Dot voice-controlled device. The compact size is a perfect fit in any room, and the built-in speaker lets you set an alarm or stream music. The Amazon Echo Dot voice-controlled device plugs into your home stereo speakers or connects wirelessly through Bluetooth.
So fun!...Not bad...This product should get product of the year award it's the most amazing piece of technology I have purchased this year it can control your schedule play music from Pandora and I heart radio controlled the lights in my home turned the TV on and off with voice commands so far I haven't seen anything else quite like this it's absolutely amazing....Funny thing since Steve Jobs has passed away techies have been waiting for the next great thing from apple and sadly its more of the same well Amazon did all techies a favor with this invention something Apple should have done with Siri but didn't....I got the echo on Black Friday 2016 and couldn't be happier.
Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to control smart home devices, play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more-instantly. All you have to do is ask.
I love...Fun Toy...Of course asking questions about traffic, weather, recipes, etc. can be a blast, but I have to admit that my favorite part is being able to request any type of music I'm in the mood for, and even change my mind a few minutes later, without having to sort through CD's or putz around with the various 'plays' or radio stations on my phone or laptop....Alexa is amazing it absolutely just works for anything that I ask easy to set up she's so easy to talk to I haven't had any complications at all I would definitely recommend this to family and friends it's absolutely perfect it was a Christmas gift and I love it...I got the echo on Black Friday 2016 and couldn't be happier.
Control your technology from afar with this Amazon Echo voice-activated speaker. The hands-free technology lets you control it with only your voice, and the 360 degrees omnidirectional sound fills the room with music. This Amazon Echo voice-activated speaker answers questions and offers news, sports and weather updates to keep you in the know.
Very nice...Love it!...Then likely not, as even though you have to touch the button on this unit as opposed to the always on Echo and Echo Dots, your life is still connected to Alexa via voice prompts!...I like that supposedly it's not listening all the time and you have to hit the button to talk to Alexa but at the same time you have to hit the button to talk to Alexa....got it on Black Friday sale.

I love....Love ??...If you already use Google Now on your phone, then this will make your life a whole lot cooler because it will already know enough about you to tell you how long it will take you to get to work (taking traffic in mind too) and be able to give you a rundown on your day and the news you are interested in....(Nothing against the Echo line- it's an excellent collection of products that are near to my heart, and i'm still keeping mine (for now), but Google has the potential and A.I. power to really outdo the competition, including the Echo.) If you're trying to decide between the two, or are even just curious about the product in general- don't hesitate, grab this one!...I purchased this on Black Friday so the price was $99 and well worth that spend.
