Top critical review
Consider the Amazon Dot 3rd gen first.
7 February 2019
I bought this unit after reading the good reviews on Amazon and the long wait for the 3rd gen Dot to be delivered. First let down is this speaker will not transmit sound via blue tooth to other blue tooth enabled speakers which was something I wanted to do. Second let down compared to my Alexa Spot it's use of the Alexa system and skills is limited and the microphone pick up not too good. Sound quality well not as good as the spot but the spot is dearer but I bought a Majority Alexa speaker for my kitchen and this does sound a bit better and the microphone pick up is also better. Now this is not a stand alone unit and needs to be plugged in directly to a socket so it is not a versatile but it is a similar price and performs better. My advice is wait for the new Dot and if ou are using it in a kitchen or bathroom go for the Majority.
