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.
