Amazon Echo

 

Imagine a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi speaker, but one with a voice-controlled personal assistant inside. That's the Amazon Echo, which gives you a personal assistant called Alexa. She is the first AI personal assistant to merit a dedicated device. She will...

Here is a program I just invented with Alexa.

Amazon Echo review: Amazon's main Echo gets cheaper, Alexa gets better

 

While Alexa is improving all the time and the Echo is great value for money, those looking for top-notch audio quality will be disappointed

Great music and list making ; You can shop through it ; Best. Kitchen timer. Ever.

Very middling as a speaker ; Lots of clonky apps ; Echo Dot is better value

Amazon Echo review

 

The world has changed since Amazon introduced its first smart speaker in 2014. Back then, the Echo was something of an oddity -- a bookshelf speaker made interactive and, remarkably, truly useful through Amazon's voice-activated Alexa virtual...

Amazon's voice-activated smart home speaker is undeniably futuristic, but it's also practical and accessible. With a rapidly growing slate of features, integrations and use cases, it's easy to get excited about the Echo's potential.

The Echo's sound quality is slightly uneven at times, with weak bass at high volumes. It also can't distinguish between different voices like the Google Home smart speaker can.

More than two years after its debut, the smarter-than-ever Amazon Echo remains one of the best connected home products money can currently buy.

Amazon Echo review

 

Is Amazon's voice-controlled speaker the answer to your smart home dream?

Alexa voice assistant is genuinely useful ; Reliable voice control ; Decent selection of features ; Easy to use

Sound is nothing special ; Relies on other apps and devices to make the most of it

So-so sound but the Alexa assistant makes this a seriously clever speaker

Amazon Echo

 

The Amazon Echo is so much more than a wireless speaker. It's part voice assistant, part home automation hub, and its abilities continue to expand steadily. And it's a blast to use.

Excellent voice recognition. Works with many third-party devices and services. Regularly expanding support for new features. Fun to use. Solid speaker sound quality.

Speaker distorts at highest volumes. No access to email and messages.

If you're just looking for a speaker, chances are you wouldn't have read this far. Sure, there's really nothing you can do with the Amazon Echo that you can't do with the smartphone in your pocket. Yet there's something here that feels infinitely more...

Amazon Echo review: Betcha can’t buy just one of these voice-activated connected-home controllers

 

The Echo is so awesome you might want one in every room of your home.

Exceptional voice-recognition capabilities ; Very fast and extremely responsive ; Extremely versatile, offering music playback, connected-home control, weather and traffic reports, and much more ; Very good app support, plus an IFTTT channel

Inferior audio features compared to the least-expensive Sonos speaker ; Flash feature would benefit from additional news sources ; Can’t control Philips Hue lighting scenes

Amazon’s Echo is versatile and powerful; an terrific value all around.

Amazon Echo review: listen up

 

"Alexa, what's the weather today?" "ALEXA! What's the weather today?" "ALEXA WHAT IS THE WEATHER TODAY GODDAMMIT." "Right now, in New York it's 25 degrees with clear skies and sun. Today's forecast...

Fast and simple to interact with ; Impressive mic and hearing range ; Joke-telling game is strong

Way too finicky ; Sometimes Alexa just ignores you ; Needs a real ecosystem outside of Amazon

Amazon Echo review: Alexa! You're great though we wish you did more

 

Amazon Echo is a brilliant, voice-activated personal assistant so futuristic that its true purpose still lies in the future

Great music and list making ; You can shop through it ; Best. Kitchen timer. Ever

Only middling as a speaker ; Lots of clonky apps ; Echo Dot seems better value

Amazon Echo review: It's all about Alexa

 

Amazon launched the Echo - its cylindrical, internet-connected Bluetooth-capable speaker - in the US back in 2015. Just over a year later and the Echo has finally made its way to the UK. Hurrah. We think hands-free voice control is a godsend and that...

Alexa is a very useful personal assistant, quality mic technology for conversing and getting clear answers, sleek looking speaker design, easy setup, lots of compatible services - and more to come

App isn't that well designed, no battery for portability, not class-leading speaker quality, Echo Dot makes more sense, you'll want Prime to make the most of it

We think hands-free voice control is a godsend and that Alexa, Amazon Echo's personal assistant, truly distinguishes this Bluetooth speaker from the competition. It's blown our minds - whether for listening to music, adding to our shopping list,...

Stellar audio quality ; Impressive voice recognition ; Useful hands-free apps

No hands-free calls, texts or emails ; Somewhat creepy
