It is the smallest of Amazon's Smart speakers and thanks to the current promotion, with a very minimal cost it allows the whole family to start playing music, perform quick searches, read the latest news, listen to weather forecasts, set alarms and especially control the Smart devices installed in the home through simple voice commands.
Like the others in the series, it allows you to call and send messages without lifting a finger to anyone who has an Echo device or the Alexa App installed on the smartphone. And being a smart device, once installed you will not have to do anything else since it will be able to automatically update itself via the cloud to add new features that will be released in the future.
Thanks to the 4 long-range microphones built into Echo Dot, Amazon Alexa can hear the user from anywhere in the room: of course, you can connect the speaker to smartphones and other multimedia devices via Bluetooth or via 3.5mm audio cable.
