What is Amazon Echo?
 
Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, answer questions, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. All you have to do is ask.
 
Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound. It has seven microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you from across the room – even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo, just say the wake word, “Alexa”, and Echo lights up and responds to your request.
 
Voice control your music
 
The 2nd generation Amazon Echo has a 2.5” downward-firing woofer and 0.6” tweeter powered by Dolby, delivering crisp vocals and dynamic bass throughout the room. You can play music from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, TuneIn and more. With Amazon Music, you can search by lyrics, time period or let Alexa pick the music for you. Learn more
 
"Alexa, play music in the office."
 
"Alexa, play top pop from the 90's."
 
Play in every room
 
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, Apple Music, TuneIn and Spotify; Bluetooth not supported. Tell Alexa to play jazz in the kitchen, top pop in the living room, or play the same song downstairs. Learn more
 
Voice-control your home
 
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, TVs, thermostats and more from Philips Hue, WeMo, TP-Link, Sony, Hive, Nest, Samsung SmartThings, Netatmo, Tado° and more. Learn more about compatible smart home devices.
 
Connect with others
 
Instantly drop in on other rooms in your home or make an announcement to every room that has a compatible Echo device. Let everyone know dinner is ready, or remind the children that it’s bedtime. You can also stay in touch with friends and family with hands-free calling. 
 
Far-field voice recognition
 
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. The 2nd-generation Amazon Echo has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any direction, even in noisy environments or while playing music at loud volumes.
 
When you want to use Echo, simply say the wake word, “Alexa”, and Echo lights up and connects to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service recognises and responds to your request. 
 
Echo has skills
 
Amazon Echo has thousands of skills and counting. Skills add even more capabilities such as ordering a pizza from Domino's, requesting a ride from Uber, tracking your fitness with Fitbit, getting recipe suggestions from Recipedia, and more. Create your own personal skills and custom responses with Alexa Skill Blueprints. To enable new skills, just ask Alexa.
 
New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about the thousands of skills available in the Alexa App. 
 
Better with Prime
 
Echo is even better with Prime. Order millions of products using only your voice - all voice orders include fast, free shipping, and Alexa can even track your delivery for you.
 
Prime members can also use their Echo to stream over 2 million songs with Prime Music.
 
Always getting smarter
 
Alexa, the brain behind Amazon Echo, updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning, adding new functionality and skills. The more you use Echo, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary and personal preferences.
 
We’ve recently added Alexa calling and messaging, multi-room music and reminders, along with skills from third-party developers.
