Sleek and compact design makes Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. You can place Dot in the bedroom and use it to play music, set alarms and turn off your lights. Or put it in the living room to check news, sports scores, calendar, and movie show times. Or use it in the kitchen to set timers, add items to lists and shop for millions of products on Amazon just using your voice.
Echo Dot streams music from Amazon Prime Music, JioSaavn, Gaana, Hungama Music and Spotify – just ask for your favorite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. Search for music by album, decade, or let Alexa pick the music for you. Or wake up to your favorite music by setting a musical alarm. With Amazon Prime Music, you can also create and manage your personal playlist.
Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even in noisy environments, or while playing music as it has four microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. When you want to use Echo dot, simply say the wake word “Alexa” and it responds instantly.
Use Echo Dot to switch on the geyser 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. Echo Dot works with compatible smart home devices – either WiFi based or those that ship with their own hub.
Use Echo Dot to call or message anyone who has an Echo device or the Alexa app. Just ask Alexa to place a call to Mom or send a quick voice message to a friend.
You can broadcast anything to all your Echo devices. Just say “Alexa, announce that I am heading home” from your Alexa app and your family will know. Instantly connect with other Echo devices in your home, or your closest family and friends. To get started, download the Alexa app on iOS and Android.
