What is Echo Dot?
Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled smart device for the home with a small built-in speaker. Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, answer questions, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more – instantly.
Meet Alexa – The Brain Behind Echo Dot
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 and vocabulary. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question – just ask and Alexa will respond instantly.
Made for any room
Sleek and compact design makes Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or use Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and shop for millions of Amazon products using just your voice.
Echo Dot can also connect to speakers using a 3.5 mm stereo cable or Bluetooth to add voice control to your home stereo system.
Far-field voice recognition
Echo Dot has an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. This allows Dot to hear you from across the room, even in noisy environments, or while playing music. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say “Alexa” and it will respond instantly.
Voice control your music
Alexa plays music from services like Amazon Prime Music, Saavn and TuneIn on your Echo Dot. Just ask for your favourite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. You can also search for music by album, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for you.
Welcome to the smart home
Use Echo Dot to switch on the lights before getting out of bed or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie – all without lifting a finger or… even raising your voice.
Dot works with smart home devices such as lights, smart plugs and more.
Alexa has skills
Alexa has tens of thousands of skills with more added regularly. Skills add even more capabilities like ordering food from Zomato, requesting a ride from Ola, booking a carpenter from Urbanclap and more.
Even better with Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime members get an exclusive preview of Amazon Prime Music, an ad-free music streaming service, only on their Echo device. They can also order millions of products using only voice and all voice orders include fast, free shipping.
