Ahhh gadgets. We loooove gadgets. And this one, the Echo Spot, is one of our new favourites! This Amazon smart-speaker with built-in Alexa functionality does not only look amazing, it works amazing as well.
You can buy the Amazon Echo on Amazon for $129,99 and that’s good worth for money. In this Echo Spot review you’ll find out about the design, functionality and downsides.
The Echo Spot Review
The design of the Echo Spot
With it’s sleek black design, the echo spot really stands out from the Alexa and the Google home. One of the most important things, ofcourse, is the built in screen which can be used to Facetime and display everything you need. It looks good in any modern interior, or bedroom.
Functionality of the Echo Spot
Echo Spot is designed to fit anywhere in your home. It uses 2nd generation far-field voice recognition to watch video flash briefings, see music lyrics, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more. That, and Echo Spot connects to Alexa, a cloud-based voice service to play music, read the news, answer questions, set music alarms, control smart home, and more. Your home will be a new experience! Just ask to play a song, artist, or genre, and see lyrics with Amazon Music.
Also, stream music and books from Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and Audible. Use the built-in speaker or connect to speakers through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable. With multi-room music, you can play music on your Echo devices in different rooms. Ask Alexa to turn on your lights, show baby monitors and front door cameras, and lock your doors. Plus, control your thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and more. You can call almost anyone hands-free, or make video calls to family and friends with an Echo Spot, Echo Show, or the Alexa App. Instantly connect to other Echo devices around your home.
And, with tens of thousands of skills, Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new features. Just ask Alexa to control your TV, request an Uber, order a pizza, and more. It’s pretty awesome.
One thing we didn’t like is the ability to adjust the font-size, but we’re hoping they’ll change that in future software updates.
