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.

question

Is this a good educational device for young kids?
Asked by: Anonymous
It's a toy but an oddly powerful toy. The 2nd generation is more child safe. You have to understand how to speak to the device and rephrase as needed. It can tell jokes or stories and the minimal amount of games though you can add skills as you like.Wikipedia and CDC access alone is invaluable and then you can play audible books and even read kindle books.With a bit of instruction your kids can use it and will love it.

question

How is the built in speaker?
Asked by: Rachael T.
Hi. I have 2 Echo Dots. The built in speaker is actually better than I expected but definitely not high fidelity. Having said that, in close proximity situations like the master bedroom, where I have one of our 2 Dots, the speaker is more than adequate. The second unit lives in the open space that is the kitchen / family room area, so I have it linked to a bluetooth speaker - which works very well.
