Product Details


Amazon Echo (2nd Generation) Voice-Controlled Speaker with Alexa

Backed by the Alexa Voice Service, the Amazon Echo goes well beyond the capabilities of an ordinary Bluetooth speaker. Yes, it connects wirelessly to your phone or tablet to play music and podcasts, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It also connects to the internet so it can answer your questions, read the news aloud, order pizza for you, and more—all in response to simple spoken commands.

Just Call on Alexa, and She’s There

All you have to do is say “Alexa,” and the Echo wakes up, ready to take your request. Seven microphones use beam-forming technology to cut through ambient noise and hear your questions and commands, even if you’re across the room. And as you interact with Alexa, she learns the nuances of your voice and speech, making it easier for her to understand you and deliver more accurate information.

Delivers High-Quality Sound

Built into the Echo are a 2.5” woofer and a 2” tweeter, each of which have been carefully tuned to project crisp high notes and rich bass lines. Pointed downward rather than forward, the drivers project sound evenly in every direction, so you can enjoy your favorite tunes no matter where you are in the room.

Control Your Smart Home

Connect the Echo to smart home products such as Philips Hue, WeMo, Nest, and ecobee, and you won’t even have to get out of your chair to control your house’s lights or change the thermostat—just ask Alexa to do it for you.

Expand Alexa’s Skills

Thanks to the Alexa app for your smartphone (available for Android, iOS, and Amazon Fire devices), you can add skills to Alexa’s repertoire based on what you like to do. Big on trivia? Add the Jeopardy! skill. Need a lift? Add Uber. Have an insatiable hunger for pizza? Add Domino’s. Because everything is based in the cloud, you won’t run out of storage space adding new skills, which are constantly being created to connect you to your favorite businesses and apps.

I love it. Still figuring out all the quirks and still waiting for Groupon to send me the plug for my light, but the echo itself is awesome!
