Amazon Echo Dot overview

  • 1Description

Make nearly any pair of speakers Bluetooth-enabled with the black 2nd-generation Amazon Echo Dot. It is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity to allow streaming from your mobile device or to a Bluetooth speaker. Its 1/8" audio output will allow you to connect external speakers so you can wirelessly stream to them through the Echo Dot from your smart device. The Echo Dot provides access to Internet-based functions such as Amazon and other online shopping, weather reports, sports results, and more via built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and voice control.

Note: Certain Alexa- and location-based features will have limited functionality outside the US. Please see the manufacturer's website for more information.

Provides Hands-Free Connectivity to Your Speakers
The Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that connects to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through an 1/8" audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. It also has a small built-in speaker in case you prefer to use it on its own. The Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more, instantly.
Made to Work in Any Room
Its compact 3.3"-diameter x 1.3"-tall design makes the Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place the Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or use the Dot in the kitchen to set timers and shop tens of millions of Amazon products using just your voice. The Echo Dot can also directly connect to speakers using an 1/8" stereo cable or Bluetooth to add voice control to your home stereo system.
ESP-Upgradeable
If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception), available via a future firmware upgrade.
Voice Control Your Music
The Echo Dot provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music, Prime Music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn. Playing your music is easy – just ask for your favorite artist or song, a playlist from Spotify or Pandora, or let Alexa pick the music for you.
Voice Control Your Smart Home
Use the Echo Dot to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favorite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie – all without lifting a finger or raising your voice. The Echo Dot works with smart home devices such as lights, switches, fans, thermostats, and more from Philips Hue, TP-Link, ecobee, WeMo, SmartThings, INSTEON, Lutron, Nest, Wink, Honeywell, and more.
Far-Field Voice Recognition
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. With its processor, the Echo Dot has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any direction – even in noisy environments or while playing music. When you want to use the Echo Dot, simply say the wake word, "Alexa," and the Dot lights up and streams audio to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service is leveraged to recognize and respond to your request instantly.
Alexa Updates Itself
Alexa – the brain behind Echo Dot – is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter. The more you use Dot, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo Dot is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.
Do More with the Alexa App
With the free Alexa App on Fire OS, Android, iOS, and desktop browsers, you can set up and manage your Echo Dot as well as access any of its skills.
Discover Alexa's Skills
Skills add more capabilities like ordering a pizza from Domino's, requesting a ride from Uber, tracking your fitness with Fitbit, ordering flowers from 1-800-Flowers, and more. Simply discover skills you want to use in the Alexa App. To enable a new skill, just ask Alexa. New skills are added often. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about the thousands of skills available in the Alexa App.
Designed for Simple Setup & Use
Plug in the Echo Dot, connect to the Internet with the Alexa App, and ask it for music, weather, news, and more.

    Amazon Echo Dot reviews

    Echo Dot (2nd Generation, Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 147.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo Dot 2nd Generation in Canada I pre-ordered 4 of these for use with my home automation system. Very easy to setup. I have them working in different rooms to give full voice coverage in my home. They all have the same wake word and the 2nd Generation Dots work well for using the closest voice command. No problems working in Canada. You can set them up using a US IOS account or side load from an Android site or via computer web browser. Location services don't work in Canada yet ie. Weather, Traffic. You have to ask for the weather using your full city and country. I'm looking forward to Echo being officially available in Canada soon. Thank-you B&H for realizing there is a whole other tech market North of the 49th Parallel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service - Great Product This is an awesome product! Couldn't find it anywhere in Canada, I guess due to Pandora and some other services not available here, everything else performs perfectly including TuneIn, Hue lighting, nest thermostat, Samsung smart things hub, etc., the list goes on and on. I bought two for now and will add a couple more for the rest of the house once I have all the light switches and dimmers installed. B&H Photo was excellent - provided tracking info - took care of customs for me - delivery was two days earlier than indicated. Even the regular shipping time was faster than most of my purchases from online Canadian stores. Very Satisfied!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as Google Home for Canadians Not as useful as Google Home in Canada. Can't set home address and only get Seattle's weather which while close isn't the same. Can't download the Alexa app in Canada but get by using Firefox. When ever Amazon releases the Echo in Canada it will get better but right now Google Home is superior. Also Alexa uses Bing as its search engine which is inferior to Google.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, just not quite as useful in Canada The Echo Dot picks up voice commands pretty well, but because it's not officially supported in Canada, there are some limitations in how it can be used here. Worsening the problem, it does not recognize my city of 90,000 people (Lethbridge) but it does recognize a nearby town of less than 10,000. So I have to get weather by asking it for weather for Coaldale instead of Lethbridge. Other location services are similarly crippled. Hopefully Amazon adds Canadian support soon - when it does, I would give this five stars. Also, the built in speaker on this device is not great. It's fine for voice prompts, but music on it sounds awful. I fully expected this so I did not take away any stars for this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo Dot 2nd Generation As advertised. Delivered in record time and setup without a hitch. I, unlike most, feel the built in speaker sound quality is quite good for a unit of this size. I have it paired to my Bluetooth Jawbone speaker and it works flawlessly. Set up was effortless. The 7 microphones are very sensitive and responses from Alexis are crisp, clear and for the most part, accurate. Skills are decent albeit some we have no use for. My son and I (5yrs old) played 20 questions with Alexa and she/it guessed correctly 3 games out of 4. I agree with other reviews that the pacing of the answers is too quick but entertaining just the same. In the short time we have had with the dot, we use the devices for music streaming, countdown timer, wake up alarm, time, traffic and weather updates as well as playing the odd game. Both kids enjoy turning on the Christmas lights using voice commands while watching from the front window. Great value for the price paid and something the whole family is enjoying - which exceeds my original expectations for this device. And the best part is it continues to evolve and improve!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great electronic gadget. Our 2nd DOT !! We use it as our alarm clock, playing our favorite music via Bluetooth from our phones, and also from TuneIn radio with great sound. Weather updates and News. Works fine, No issues at all, recommend to anyone that may want an everyday assistant.
    Date published: 2016-12-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from quite pleased I like the fact that I can, just by speaking to Alexa, get music, HOWEVER, I found out that it is not easy to ask for a certain orchestra or artist or song if I stand at about 8 feet from the unit. I get the wrong artist or orchestra or I hear the unit say: I can not find such or such orchestra on the list, even when I ask for Montovani). Maybe she does not understand my accent (more British than American...I did set it on English accent though) and I can not get up every time to to the unit to ask for something. They say that Alexa gets more ad more familiar with your voice, so we will see. Otherwise, I am amazed by the fact that such a small unit can do so many things. ES

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from its the little things in life Having access to information and control smart devices without having to find my phone is great.
