Alexa on a talet :) life may not be the same again!
1 September 2018
I recently joined Amazon Prime, using a Fire Stick, and wanted the Fire tablet to accompany my use of all the resources available with my Prime membership.
The Amazon Fire tablet seamlessly engaged with: my Kindle books, Prime music, Prime video and the Amazon site. I have been so impressed with this ecosystem that I now have an Echo Dot and an Echo on the way.
Outside the Amazon offerings, one can use the tablet in the normal way to surf the net, stream audio and video. Put this alongside the apps available from the Amazon store (both bought and free) and one has a highly functional tablet, that both engages with the broader Internet and allows seamless engagement with the Amazon Prime offerings in my membership.
I have saved the best until last, Alexa, she now sits in my Fire tablet and the Echo Dot on the table beside me (5Live sport coverage of the football streaming at the moment). If I tell her to play a radio station, she does so, on the Fire Tablet or Echo Dot (I listened to Radio Merseyside's coverage of the Rugby League last evening) or I could ask her to set a reminder (eg Try Time on Thursdays at six) and low and behold she does just that and tells me! Or I could just say "stream Faithless" and she does this from my Prime subscription.
I am a relative newcomer to the potential of my Fire Tablet, I am more than happy with what I have been able to do so far and anticipate more to come.
Overall I am delighted by my Fire Tablet, it, for the price, is a great portal to utilising the resources of Amazon Prime membership, a good general tablet and, given the addition of the smart assistance of Alexa, a revelation.
NB: I have used other smart assistants on other platforms, but given the Amazon resources, skills and the Prime benefits, Alexa wins out :D
