Use voice to manage your life
Don’t get up to change radio stations or add an item to your shopping list, ask Alexa instead. There are thousands of ‘skills’ (like apps on your phone) that you can download – with more being added every day – to help you do even more hands-free. So next time you need a taxi, ask Alexa to order one instead. Or track your fitness with Alexa, instead of checking your usual device.
Add voice control to your speakers
It’s not just daily tasks that Alexa can help with; use your voice to play your favourite tracks from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and others. Easily connect other speakers or headphones to the Echo Dot, using Bluetooth or an audio cable. Or pair with other Echo devices to fill the house with music. The Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even if your home is particularly noisy.
Manage your smart devices
The Echo Dot works with hundreds of compatible smart home devices – from lighting to plugs, heating and more. So you can manage your home from the comfort of your sofa. Ask Alexa to dim the lights after dinner, turn up the thermostat when it’s chilly or switch off the TV – all without lifting a finger.
