What is it?
Amazon Echo Dot provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music, Prime Music, Spotify and TuneIn. Playing your music is easy—just ask for your favourite artist or song, a playlist from Spotify or Prime Music, or let Alexa pick the music for you.
You can use Amazon Echo Dot to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favourite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a film—all without lifting a finger… or even raising your voice.
Echo Dot can hear you from across the room—even in noisy environments or while playing music. Echo Dot works with smart home devices such as lights, switches, thermostats and more from WeMo, Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, tado° and others.
How does it work?
When you want to use Echo Dot, all you have to do is simply say the wake word, "Alexa", and Echo Dot lights up and streams audio to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service is leveraged to recognise and respond to your request.
Alexa—the brain behind Amazon Echo Dot—updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning, adding new functionality and skills. The more you use Echo Dot, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary and personal preferences.
It’s a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker—it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Echo Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more.
