The Amazon Echo Dot (3 rd Gen) is an upgrade from the old Echo which wasn’t as impressive as people expected it to be. This time may be different, right? Let’s see.
The new design is a small cylindrical, fabric design. On the surface you’ll find four buttons –
Volume control, microphone mute and Alexa. Alexa is the built-in smart assistant that’ll do everything for you. Echo Dot is also wireless which means it’s travel friendly. Need to go somewhere? Pack it up with you.
Now as for the features, the 3 rd gen smart device is very easy to set up. All you need to do to activate Alexa is say the name or press the button provided on top. The voice quality is excellent and you can ask Alexa to perform basic tasks such as the weather report, sports scores, news, play music etc. Using Bluetooth echo dot you can connect to separate devices like speakers, your car, other echo dot devices and so on. The music quality is amazing and is loud enough to fill a room. Since Alexa can link to your apps, it makes everything much easier. Alexa can also make and manage calls. It’s very child friendly so you don’t have to worry about that.
If you’re looking for a simple smart home device, then this is a pretty good choice at this price point. But if you’re someone who needs a personal search engine to access information, Alexa is not made for that. Aside from that, it’s a good choice.
