Description and Setup

Showing off a cylindrical body, the Amazon Echo stands a little over nine inches tall and has a somewhat sleek, black finish. Seven microphones accompanied by a light ring can be noticed at the top of the speaker – these are used for communicating with Alexa, Amazon’s own voice assistant, to get things done.

The setup process is fairly simple. You need to connect Amazon Echo to your Wi-Fi network. Guidance is provided by a free companion app, which is available for Amazon Fire OS, Android and iOS devices as well as desktop browsers. Connection can also be done via Bluetooth, similar to how you set up a Bluetooth speaker.

What can it do?

With the aid of the Alexa cloud-based voice service, Amazon Echo can read news to you and get you daily and weekly weather reports. You can ask the speaker for answers to questions or to add an item to your shopping list.

It can tell you time and also set a reminder or alarm. If you so wish, you may even ask it to tell you a joke. The seven-microphone array boasts beaming technology, according to Amazon, making it possible for the device to detect your voice from any direction.

You wake up the voice assistant by saying ‘Alexa’ and the light ring around the top fires up.

Amazon Echo is designed for enjoyable music listening. It comes with dual downward-firing speakers for all-directional, immersive sound. Improved noise cancellation ensures you can issue commands to the speaker even while it is playing songs.

Amazon has also talked up the speaker’s smart home capability. The company says the Echo can be used to turn on a lamp or a fan, for instance, and works with SmartThings devices, amongst others.

Additional Information

Users can now play Audible audiobooks on Amazon Echo. The device can also provide you live scores and you can listen to music from Pandora, in addition to Amazon Music Library, iHeartRadio and others.

Amazon Echo will equally be able to tell you about upcoming events on your Google calendar. It comes with a remote that has integrated microphone for communicating with Alexa when far from the speaker.
