Echo Plus features a premium speaker for powerful 360° sound, and a built-in Zigbee smart home hub and temperature sensor. Play music, ask questions, make calls to anyone with an Echo device or the Alexa App (Skype coming soon), or get information, news, sports scores, weather and more. With the built-in hub, starting your smart home is easy.
The simple way to start your smart home
Echo Plus connects to and controls smart lights, plugs, switches and more. Just power on compatible products and say, "Alexa, discover my devices." Echo Plus will automatically detect and set up those devices so you can control them with your voice. This simple setup process works with dozens of compatible smart home devices that use Zigbee. Echo Plus also supports every Works with Alexa smart home device.
Always ready to help
Make your life easier at home. Use your voice to set timers, add items to lists or create calendar events and reminders. You can also check the news, weather or traffic, or ask for sports scores, film showtimes, restaurant hours or information.
Voice-control your music
Echo Plus has a new premium speaker design with Dolby Processing, engineered for high-quality audio. Use your voice to ask for any song, artist or genre from Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn, and others, and play music across compatible Echo devices throughout your home. You can also listen to Audible, radio stations and more.
Connect with others
Call anyone with an Echo device or the Alexa App hands-free using your voice (Skype coming soon). Use Drop In to quickly connect to another compatible Echo device at home or send an announcement across Echo devices, like calling the family for dinner or reminding the kids to go to sleep.
Alexa has skills
Alexa has tens of thousands of skills and counting. Skills are like apps and help you do more, such as playing True or False, tracking your fitness with Fitbit or falling asleep to rain sounds. Just say "Alexa, help me get started with skills".
New skills are being added all the time. Discover skills in the Skills section of the Alexa App or visit the Skills Store.
With a 2.5” downward-firing woofer and 0.8” tweeter powered by Dolby, Echo Plus has crisp highs, deep bass, and 360° audio to fill your room with music. Play from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more. You can also listen to audiobooks from Audible, podcasts, radio stations, news briefs, and more. Want to play music on an Echo in another room? Now with multi-room music, you can tell Alexa to play across your compatible Echo devices. Tell Alexa to play jazz in the office, soundtracks in the family room, or play the same song across your whole house.
Hands-free calling and messaging
With Echo Plus, you can talk to anyone hands-free—no tapping or searching required. Your contacts will see your number when they receive the call so they know who is calling. Additionally, you can send messages via voice or text to anyone with a supported Echo device or the Alexa App. With the Drop In feature enabled for room-to-room calling, instantly connect with compatible Echo devices in your home. Let your household know when dinner is ready, ask someone for help with a chore, or remind the kids to go to sleep—without having to raise your voice.
Far-field voice recognition
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beamforming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. Echo Plus has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any direction—even in noisy environments or while playing music at loud volumes. When you want to use Echo Plus, simply say the wake word, “Alexa,” and Echo Plus lights up and connects to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service recognizes and responds to your request instantly.
Alexa has skills
Echo Plus uses tens of thousands of skills and counting. Ask about your daily commute, control your Sony smart TV, play Jeopardy, check your account balance with American Express, and more. To enable a new skill, just ask Alexa. New skills are being added all the time.
