Not bad....it's good...It is funny how the latest technology sometimes brings us back to where we were when I was a kid -- having a "beat box" to carry around room to room and outside....Also, bonus: Alex. I like the update they have done to it as well where you don't have to push the button to activate her, you can just say her name....got it on Black Friday sale.

Fun Toy...A plus...I have it hooked up with another external bluetooth speaker I have (which allows for much better sound) along with any and all other accounts I have, such as Pandora, iHeart Radio, etc., and now I find myself asking Alexa to do almost everything; i.e., "Alexa, play some _____ (artist) station", to "Alexa, turn on my Blu-Ray Player/ TV/ Apple TV/ Radio"....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....Black Friday

wow !...fun !...I have it hooked up with another external bluetooth speaker I have (which allows for much better sound) along with any and all other accounts I have, such as Pandora, iHeart Radio, etc., and now I find myself asking Alexa to do almost everything; i.e., "Alexa, play some _____ (artist) station", to "Alexa, turn on my Blu-Ray Player/ TV/ Apple TV/ Radio"....It's everything that the Echo can do with a much smaller form factor and with speakers that are more than adequate for music (unless you're too picky about sound, then just connect a bluetooth speaker.) So happy, I bought another for my wife who has already set it up to turn on the coffeemaker in the a.m....Purchased on Black Friday price works great with my insteon hub reason for the dot purchase.

Cool :)...Cool Toy...I think in order to get the full benefits its best to be a prime member so you can link your account and use prime music but also be able to utilize the tools like shopping list, checking past orders, etc. the only downside is it's not wireless....i adore my echo...i wake up in morning, get a quick weather, sports scores...and here in florida, I get to listen to my favorite nyc sports radio stations...i use it to access my music...and I recently purchased a audio book for the wife, and I am waiting until I give her that audiobook for xmas; the I can ask alexa to read it to me !...This black Friday (2016) I purchased another Echo and a few Echo Dots (Dots are a great price) and I could't be more happy.

And fun!...Good buy...We are still getting used to the devices capabilities: there are definitely correct and incorrect questions to pose and we have not yet learned to do much more than get weather and some general information and ask for different kinds of music; we have not yet learned to program or reset our thermostat....I love my new Google home.I would recommend this product to a person who have an office or in a bedroom where you live to listen to music or if you need information.This is the product for you.For it to be small it's very loud.You can put it on top of a shelf and no one will not notice it.If someone ask what you would like for a gift say google home The cost is cheap...What turned into an impulse black Friday purchase has turned into a daily frequently used item.

Worth it...loved it...I really like that you can set an alarm to wake you to whatever you want - be it a station from Pandora or iHeart Radio, a playlist created from your own personal music, or a station from SXM - and you can control, easily, what time, what day and what speaker the alarms will play through - works great for waking my daughter for school because I can control the volume from anywhere in the house....The speaker requires that I download the app and play music through the app so I can't listen to youtube videos, the pandora and 8tracks options within the app are not nearly as good as the actual pandora and 8tracks apps themselves, and I can't just connect any device instantly....During the Black Friday sale I picked up two play:1's.
