Play and control your music using just your voice
Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker that allows you to take control using just your voice. Connecting to devices using your home WiFi and Bluetooth, the device allows you hands-free convenience as it can hear you from across the room. Even when the environment is noisy, the seven microphones and beam-forming technology lets it pick up on your voice using far-field voice recognition.
You can fill the room with immersive 360-degree omni-directional audio thanks to dual down-firing speakers, streaming music from services such as Prime Music, Spotify and TuneIn. You can control it using your voice so using your Amazon Echo is hassle-free.
The speaker is fine-tuned, delivering crisp vocals and deep dynamic bass response.
When you want to use the Amazon Echo, simply wake it by saying 'Alexa'. If you have more than one Echo, you can choose a different wake word for each of them - choose between 'Amazon', 'Alexa' or 'Echo' as wake words.
Answers questions and provides information on demand
Alexa is the brain at the heart of Amazon Echo, and updates through the cloud. It is continually learning, as well as adding new functions and skills. The more you use the Amazon Echo, the more it will adapt to you, learning your speech patterns, personal preferences and vocabulary.
Using your voice, you can request information from the device to make your life easier. The Amazon Echo can answer questions, read audiobooks and news reports, provide traffic and weather reports, give information on local businesses, provide sport scores and schedules, and much more.
It can also do so much more to make your life easier when you enable skills. For example, why not order a takeaway from Just Eat or check train times on National Rail? There's many more to discover in the Alexa app. New skills are being added all the time.
