About this deal
From there, you can play around with other Alexa features and browse the skill list. With over 100,000 Alexa skills (and growing), you can personalize your Echo Dot's Alexa to the fullest. If you've never tried Alexa before, the Echo Dot is a fantastic and affordable smart device to try. With the features and skills that we mentioned earlier, you'll see how valuable and fun Alexa can be. Once connected, the setup process should automatically begin in the app. If not, head to Alexa Devices, then selectAdd Alexa Device within the app. When that’s done, you’re ready to start talking to your device. What can the Echo Dot do? 1) Home assistant and entertainment in one device
While the Echo Dot lets you know when it’s listening, sometimes it will start without warning. Occasionally it will hear a word that sounds like Alexa, and activate. That can feel unnerving.And of course, larger Echo devices have room for more capable speaker hardware, boosting audio quality. This is a minor complaint. However, for a low profile device, Dot’s cloth covering is harder to clean than the original plastic. Be mindful of dust, because you won’t want to try and clean off several months of build-up. Is it worth it? The best part of the Echo Dot is how easily it does menial tasks you’d normally need to pull out your phone for. Thats thanks to the Alexa smart assistant software. When you’re cooking or working out it’s nice to keep your hands free setting a time. Just ask Alexa.
Answering questions. Alexa will scrape the web and gather reliable information to answer any questions that you might have. The virtual assistant is more capable than you might think, so don't be afraid to ask complex or difficult questions. The Echo Dot doesn't have a display, so it can't show a video recipe or display photos. For recipes, Alexa will verbally list the steps to follow a recipe or ask to send the recipe to your phone---so you can watch or read it there. Alexa doesn't support photos on the Echo Dot, so you'll have to look for another Echo device that does.
With your Echo Dot's Alexa, you can learn and use new skills that can add safety, convenience, and joy to your life. You can view all of your Alexa skills and browse for new ones in the Alexa app. Once Alexa learns a skill, it can be accessed through voice commands.
