The Amazon Echo Spot maybe small but it is perfectly formed. Designed to fit virtually anywhere in the home the Echo Spot lets you watch the latest news, see music lyrics while you listen to your favourite tunes, see and hear the weather forecast, review you to-do lists, browse and listen to Audible Books and much, much more. All hands free, just ask Alexa.
Your Amazon Echo Spot has Alexa as its brain, a cloud based personal assistant. Ask Alexa to play music with Amazon Music (or other compatible streaming services), make a shopping list, read the news, set alarms or even control your smart home. The list of possibilities is growing by the day.
Simply ask your Amazon Echo Spot to play a song by your favourite artist and you can see the lyrics on the screen with Amazon Music. You can also stream music and audio books from Spotify, Apple Music, TuneIn and Audible.
You can use the built-in speaker on the Amazon Echo Spot or connect to speakers through either Bluetooth or a standard 3.5mm jack. Have more than one Echo device? Join them in a group to enable multi-room music so you can listen to your favourite tune in your room or every room.
Control your compatible smart home devices using your Amazon Echo Spot. Alexa, turn on the living room lights, Alexa, show me the front door camera, turn up the heating, boil the kettle, the possibilities are endless.
You can call almost anyone hands-free, this includes UK mobile and landline numbers (UK Only), other echo devices and Skype users. If you are a Vodafone customer you can link your account to make and receive mobile phone calls on your Amazon Echo Spot.
