Amazing skills are available
Also I have Fibaro Home automation and though I found the settings on Amazon.com, it is not found on Amazon.in and so it's not connecting to Home Automation device too.
If you want a music player which can be voic6 controlled go for it
Although you need to pay for that music service eventually.And I'm pretty much sure Amazon is going to push prime music through your throat
Got it for 2250/- in offers.
Alexa can play music on demand, quiz, time, news and more features are added everyday.
Music library will enhance if u have Amazon prime account otherwise library is limited.
Though even having prime Alexa can't find certain songs in library
It's good to start with echo dot to know whether u like it or not.
Bluetooth support with Alexa is excellent and Bluetooth connect/disconnect are via voice command
Volume level are also through voice cmd which is greatly helpful
Overall it nice to have one
The smallest of the Echo series which is a brand of smart speakers developed by Amazon which connects to the voice - controlled intelligent personal assistant Alexa.
So you must be wondering what Alexa is capable of, well she can do a lot of things such as :
1. Setting alarms and timers.
2. Play music.
3. Reading out ebooks.
4. Updates on weather forecast and traffic.
5. Recent news headlines and general
information about sports,movies etc.
6. Home automation.
7. Adding stuff to your shopping list.
And a lot more...
She has the so called 'Skills' which allows her to connect to third party apps and do particular things like booking a cab on Uber.
This just keeps getting bigger and better through updates.
What's in the box?
1. Echo dot
2. 9W Adapter
3. USB cable (long)
4. User manual
There was a slight delay in the delivery but the packing was superbly done by Amazon.
The reason I decided to deduct one star is because of the sound quality. Amazon's Alexa app has an Equaliser which can adjust the base, middle and treble. But this still couldn't give the best output. If you want the best music output then I'd say you connect echo dot with external Bluetooth speaker. Echo dot + Jbl Flip 4 = House party.
