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
Sleek and compact design makes Amazon Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Echo Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or use Echo Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and more using just your voice.
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.
Amazon Echo Dot provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music—just ask for your favourite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. You can also search for music by lyrics, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for you. Listen to 40 million songs with Amazon Music Unlimited. Learn More
Echo Dot also provides hands-free voice control to Spotify and TuneIn.
Use Amazon Echo Dot to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favourite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a film—all without lifting a finger… or even raising your voice.
Echo Dot works with smart home devices such as lights, switches, thermostats and more from WeMo, Samsung SmartThings, Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, Tado°, Tp-link, Nest and others. Learn more about compatible smart home connected devices, including starter kits for easy setup.
Echo Dot now supports IFTTT (If This, Then That), a third-party service that allows you to create rules (or “applets”) that automate how your devices, apps and websites work with each other.
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. With far-field voice recognition, Amazon Echo Dot can hear you ask a question from any direction—even in noisy environments or while playing music.
When you want to use Echo Dot, simply say the wake word, “Alexa”, and Echo Dot lights up and streams audio to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service is leveraged to recognise and respond to your request. Learn more about voice recognition on Echo Dot.
Alexa—the brain behind Amazon Echo Dot—updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning, adding new functionality and skills. The more you use Echo Dot, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary and personal preferences.
Just in the last few months we’ve added Amazon order tracking, IFTTT, local search from Yelp, movie showtimes, Google and Outlook.com calendar support, Audible audiobooks, text-to-speech for Kindle eBooks and thousands of new skills from third-party developers.
Skills add even more capabilities such as ordering take away from Just Eat, requesting a ride from Uber, checking train times from National Rail and more. Enabling skills lets your Amazon Echo Dot do even more—simply discover and enable the skills you want to use in the Alexa App.
New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about skills in the Alexa App. Discover and enable skills.
With the free Alexa App on Fire OS, Android, iOS and desktop browsers, you can easily set up and manage your Amazon Echo Dot.
Use the Alexa App to connect services you already use such as Amazon Music, Spotify and Google Calendar. Set up your smart home devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, tado° and more. See which books are available to listen to from your Audible library. View shopping and to-do lists while on the go. Control your timers and set custom tones for your alarms, and much more. The Alexa App is also where you discover and enable third-party skills.
Customise your Amazon Echo Dot for any room with the optional Echo Dot Case. Available in leather or fabric and a range of colours.

So at £35 the Echo Dot is a great bargain ...at £50 I think it's a fair price.
I got the Echo dot (rather than the Echo with speaker) as the Dot has Bluetooth and could connect to my sound bar in my living room. I set it up within a few minutes.
You have to download the Alexa app (I downloaded to my mobile which is preferable for me) to complete the set up procedure. Then you are off!
I suggest spending a good hour to get to know Alexa, trying things out to see what your new friend is capable of. There are plenty of lists of commands and reviews of "skills" you can find on the web, but a lot of these are things you are not going to use on a regular basis once the novelty has worn off.
If you have an Amazon Prime account (as I do) you get some additional benefit with Music selection options, but select a track or artist that is not included in Amazon Prime Music, and Alexa will offer up Amazon's premium music service upgrade for a monthly fee of course. You don't have to subscribe to this service, but Alexa will remind you of the option now and again
After 3 weeks with my purchase I have settled into a routine with Alexa and find the "good morning" random fact a nice touch. I use the music options a great deal, also the "shopping list" section is good...shouting items out to Alexa from different parts of the house as you find you are out of toothpaste or coffee etc.Read more ›
The really good thing about this from my point of view is the ease with which it pairs with smart switches, plays almost any music I choose, gives me access to loads of information (from the internet of course) and will even take notes to my 'Notebook' (I use Evernote but it will do others I believe). I had to smile when I just said the line, 'Echo, when shall we three meet again' and it responded 'In thunder, lightning or in rain'. It certainly knows its Macbeth - though sadly couldn't easily go on to the next lines.... though it will read from a Kindle! I also asked it to, 'Play Misty for me' and up it came with the song... brilliant! I also think it's cute that if you say goodnight, it will respond 'sweet dreams' or other rather sweet comments! You can tell that I was feeling lonely that evening.... talking to a piece of electronics... whatever next! (Well my wife was away abroad...) Now I mention that, I was easily able to get the weather forecast for Hong Kong (where my wife was staying at the time) so I knew what she was going through - steamy temperatures in the 30's - whilst at home it was wet and cool...
I know that some of the 'fun' will fade over time but I can still see a practical application long term for this device. I shall almost certainly get another 1 or 3 for other rooms in the house. I am going to make a plan of what other equipment I need to maximise the benefits of a 'smart' home and look forward to making life a little easier as I ease into retirement.... I wish...
The extra portability means I have been using the Dot all around the garden and in the garage without having to worry about cables.
The Dot is a great bit of kit, nice to look at and fun to use, it has become an everyday use item, especially for music. As my Son said, you really miss Alexa when she isn't with you, you just want to say 'Alexa' and get an answer!
Already have a Nest, it was easy to pair the two together, and I can control my heating by Alexa. Also wired a Sonoff (£6 online) into the kettle lead, connected to wifi, and can turn kettle on by Alexa. Did similar with two table lamps and two more Sonoffs.
Echo can therefore control heating, kettle, and two lights.
Next thing for me will be the Philips Hue lighting, on the next Prime Day.
It's also great for calendars, shopping lists and to-do lists. You can also use IFTTT to get an email of your shopping list every time you ask Alexa what's on your list.
My sweet little Preying Mantis is losing weight. She likes stones and pounds, but the scales are metric: 'Alexa, convert 164kg to stones and pounds' and the answer's back immediately.
Also great to set a short reminder when I've got food on the stove. Saved me money already no burning pizzas.
I opted for the Echo Dot as I already have a UE Boom bluetooth speaker. I simply instruct Alexa to connect to the speaker, and then ask her to play whatever music I like. I only use Prime Music, but there's plenty there for me.
One thing, they act independently, so if you set a reminder on one, only that one will remind you, The reminder isn't 'sticky'. It will remind you, but if you're not there to hear it, it won't remind you again. Similarly you can play different music on each at the same time.
There's also an output jack on the dot, so you can connect to other non-bluetooth speakers.

Every room in the house should have one of these. It will hear you when you ask and gives clear speech and good sound quality. It really does do what it says on the tin.Published 24 minutes ago by Newkie Nick
False advertising - it says you save £20 when you buy both the echo and echo dot but doesn't apply the discount.Published 54 minutes ago by jacey
