Amazon Echo is a hands–free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, ask questions, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. All you have to do is ask.
The 2nd–generation Amazon Echo has a 2.5" down–firing woofer and 0.6" tweeter, delivering crisp vocals and dynamic bass throughout the room. You can play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and more. With Amazon Music, you can search by lyrics, time–period, or let Alexa pick the music for you. You can also listen to audiobooks from Audible, podcasts, radio stations, news briefings 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 Echo devices available for Amazon Music, Tune In and Spotify (coming soon); Bluetooth not supported. Tell Alexa to play jazz in the kitchen, top pop in the living room, or play the same song downstairs.
Use Amazon Echo to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favourite chair or dim the lights from the couch to watch a film–all without lifting a finger.
Echo works with lights, locks, switches, thermostats and more from WeMo, Samsung SmartThings, Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, Tado°, Tp–link, Nest and more.
With Amazon Echo, you can easily talk to anyone hands–free who also has an Echo device or the Alexa App — no tapping or searching required. Additionally, you can send messages via voice or text to anyone with an Echo device or the Alexa App.
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. With the Drop In feature enabled for room–to–room calling, quickly connect with Echo devices in your home.
Echo has been fine-tuned to deliver crisp vocals with dynamic bass response. Its dual downward-firing speakers produce 360° omni-directional audio to fill the room with immersive sound.
Always be heard
Tucked under Echo's light ring is an array of seven microphones. These sensors use beam-forming technology to hear you from any direction. With enhanced noise cancellation, Echo can hear you ask a question even while it's playing music.
Alexa - the brain behind Echo - is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter. The more you use Echo, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.
