Smart entertainment devices are some of the coolest things on the market. And for the music lovers out there, you are definitely going to want to consider getting yourself an Amazon Echo.

Pros

The 360 degree speaker design gives you perfect audio for the entire room—and that’s all with one compact speaker that can be easily transported anywhere.

It also features voice control so that you can operate it totally hands free. Give it commands without the need to stop dancing. And that’s guaranteed because it’s got high quality receivers that can hear you from across the room even while music is playing.

Also, this fun little device does much more than play all your favorite music from Spotify, Prime Music, Pandora, and others. It can also do much more, including:

  • Read audiobooks to you (including a text-to-speech option for your Kindle books)
  • Tell you the news
  • Give you traffic and weather updates
  • Find local restaurants and business
  • Check movie times
  • Provide you with the latest scores and schedules for your favorite sports and teams
  • Help you make online purchases via voice commands.
  • Answer your questions (which you can ask thanks to the voice recognition capabilities).

To command it, you simply start by saying the wake up word “Alexa” and then follow that with your question or command. For example, you can say things like “Alexa, play my Favorites playlist” or “Alexa, turn up the volume” or “Alexa, what is the average lifespan of penguins?”

It also acts as a command center for other smart products. It control smart lights, thermostats, or switches so long as they are compatible. Compatible devices include anything from the following brands:

  • WeMo
  • Samsung SmartThings
  • Philips Hue
  • Nest
  • Insteon
  • Wink
  • Ecobee

Plus, it’s regularly updated to add even more cool features and skills. So it’s so much more than a simple speaker. It’s your little helper that also happens to provide a crisp, clear sound for your favorite tunes.

Cons

This is such a fantastic product, it’s hard to find anything bad to say about it. The only thing that might be an issue for some is that, although it’s a great speaker, it’s not really enough to work as a replacement for a complete sound system.

It works impressively well for its size but it’s no substitute for a high-end surround sound speaker system.

Conclusion

This is not just a flashy device that looks cool and then stops being useful after the novelty wears off. The functions it has and the new ones it is constantly adding will make sure it is always a relevant smart device in your home.

The technology is also high quality and dependable. The more you use it, the smarter it gets because it learns to get better at recognizing your speech patterns and your personal preferences.

Amazon is cooperating with dozens of third-party developers so that it can continue adding new skills and features to the Amazon echo. This makes it a great buy now as well as one that will continue to get better and better with time. We definitely recommend this purchase. It’s also makes an awesome gift.
