Your alarm & more
Amazon have added an LED display to their popular Echo Dot speaker, so you can see the time, outdoor temperature, or timers at a glance. Perfect for your bedside table, you can ask Alexa to set an alarm, wake up to music, and tap the top to snooze. It automatically adjusts to the light of the room, so it won't disturb your sleep after you've asked Alexa to "turn off the light".
Privacy is important. With multiple layers of privacy protection and control, including a Microphone Off button, you can enjoy peace of mind.
Play your favourite music using just your voice through Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and other popular streaming services. If you've got other Echo devices in different rooms, you can fill your whole home with music – great if you're having a party. You can even use it to listen to Audible books and radio stations, or pair it with Fire TV to get voice-control over films and shows.
Switch on your smart home
Connect Amazon Echo Dot to your smart home devices for voice control throughout your house. Dim the lights when you're watching a movie, turn the heating up if you're feeling chilly or just set handy reminders for yourself – all without getting out of your seat.
Alexa's got a range of skills to help you out and have fun. Just like apps, Alexa's skills range from helping out with life to just a bit of fun. From playing games and quizzes, to tracking your fitness with Fitbit just say “Alexa, help me get started with skills” to discover thousands of different skills.
And of course, new skills are being added all the time. Check out the Skills section of the Alexa App or visit the Skills Store to see what's on offer.
Echo Dot helps you stay connected with family and friends too. You can call anyone with an Echo Dot or just send a voice message to other Echo Dots in the house – perfect for getting everyone down to the table when dinner's ready.
