What is Amazon Echo Dot?

Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker—it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Echo Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. Prime members can also ask Alexa to order eligible products they've ordered before and many Prime products. All you have to do is ask.

Echo Dot can hear you from across the room—even in noisy environments or while playing music. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo Dot responds. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the device you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception). Learn more about ESP

Alexa, what's the weather in London?

Echo Dot can also directly connect to speakers using a 3.5 mm stereo cable or using Bluetooth to add voice control to your home stereo system in the living room. Learn more about Bluetooth speakers and devices that work well with Echo Dot.

I have to be honest, I'm not in love with our Echo Dot. When it works it's great, but I'm not sure this is often enough to make it worth it.
Setting it up was really easy and we had it up and running in no time. The device is tiny and unobtrusive, except you have to make sure to leave at least 8 inches clearance to avoid interference. This hasn't stopped the Dot from being temperamental and telling us how she doesn't understand our questions or playing the wrong song.
When it works properly it is really helpful and I love asking it to play some music from the kitchen. No more touching my phone with greasy hands!
The speaker is not too bad overall. I really don't see the need for a normal sized Echo.
A few weeks before Christmas we got a Samsung SmartThings Starter Kit, this has made all the difference. We had the Christmas tree lights plugged to the smart plug, all we had to do was say: "Alexa, turn the Christmas tree on" and it will go on without a hitch. I absolutely loved it. I have now changed it to the lamp in the lounge and it's been equally great.
My biggest issue is that it sometimes stops listening before we finish asking a question/making a request. When it gets grumpy like this, the only way to ask a question is by pressing the dot button. This is really frustrating and it doesn't tend to fix itself unless you disconnect it.
I'm sure with time these teething issues will be fixed and we will find other things we love about our Echo Dot, but for now it feels like a really limited and frustrating device. But I wouldn't write it off just yet.

We bought the Echo Dot as we were curious about how we could use the various functions and wanted a small discrete device which could play the radio. The Echo has so many more uses though which we found, but we did start getting tired of talking so much! You can use the device as a calculator, the random Christmas cracker jokes, helps parents with the odd spelling homework and really was close to replacing my wife if it could cook.

Unfortunately the novelty does wear off after some time and I'm actually using the USB cable for another device (as it has a fantastic length of cable), but this shouldn't put you off as I'm hoping to bring Alexa back to life once I get my Spotify premium subscription!

By Andy Kumar HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Nov. 2016
Style: Amazon Echo DotColour: Black Verified Purchase
The Echo Dot is Amazon’s smaller and more affordable option for those looking to satisfy their home (voice) automation curiosities, without laying down a more substantial investment. Priced at a modest £49.99, it is considerably cheaper than its bigger brother, the Echo unit, which is priced at £149.99. I have already reviewed the standard Echo unit. In a nutshell, the Echo Dot carries out exactly the same functions. There are however a few differences as well, which I will also highlight.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The Echo Dot ships in a very small package. The box itself is tiny, and Amazon have done a great job with the packaging here (it terms of being green). Included in the box is the Echo Dot unit, a USB to mini USB cable, 9v wall plug (not needed if you are connecting to an existing USB hub) and instructions/warranty information. I was actually up and running a lot quicker this time around (compared with the standard Echo) as I had already installed the app, and knew exactly what to do.

SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES
The Echo Dot is pretty much the same device as its older brother. It has the same buttons, layout, LED ring and 7 microphones The build quality and aesthetics are also identical, albeit in a smaller form-factor. From a functional perspective, I have noticed a similar performance in voice control and feedback.

The Dot is also much, much smaller. For this reason alone, this may actually be a more inviting purchase if space is limited. This is due to Amazon removing the speaker the 2.5” woofer and 2.5” tweeter from the unit (which was not great, but still very listenable). The Dot does have a speaker, but it honestly is bad! My iPhone speaker sounds bette, to be perfectly honest.
