Amazon Echo Dot

The Amazon Echo Dot is a smaller, powerful version of the Amazon Echo. The main difference between the two devices other than their pricing points is the absence of an internal speaker system. It makes up for it with an audio-out port and Bluetooth connectivity features. The dot is 1.3 inches tall and resembles a hockey puck. It is available in two color schemes, black and white. The Dot, similar to Echo, has a voice assistant called Alexa which listens to voice commands and executes tasks such as setting alarms, reading out ebooks and telling stories, ask the Dot to read the news, set a timer while you’re cooking or set today’s schedule.

  • The Amazon Dot is designed to blend into your home’s décor, thanks to its small size and puck design. With the Dot, you don’t need to worry about upsetting your home’s Feng Shui.
  • Priced at less than 50 dollars, this device is among the most affordable smart home solutions in the market.
