LOVE OUR NEW ECHO! I have been watching the reviews online and checking with friends that have purchased the Echo to see how much they liked or disliked its features. Last person I talked to went on and on about all the things there were using it for and that persuaded me it was time and Amazon Prime Day was the perfect opportunity to go for it. Amazon did a fantastic job of creating this tubular info-taining command center! There are so many cool and awesome things its able to do that I’ll hit the highlights that work for our household. First, we love that it follows your voice in the room (the circle lighting will show which direction it is ‘listening’), the speaker is wonderfully balanced, so whether listening to music, the news or to Alexa speaking, I have nothing but high marks for its sound quality, given its size. Next, set up (after downloading the app to our iPhones) was quick, easy and very intuitive. The more you look over the app, the more you will realize a world of ‘skills’ (as Amazon refers to them – we’ve nicked named them “echolettes” LOL) that the unit is able to perform once they are turned on and you master the right sequence of keywords to initialize them. We’ve added things to shopping lists, while asking about the weather and our calendar of events and then asked Alexa to change the temp of our Nest thermostats in various parts of the house, simply by saying her name and then our commands, sometimes sitting in the living room or simply pass through – she is always there listening and ready. We’ve ordered some LED programmable lights and I can hardly wait for Alexa to help set the mood in the house, room to room, all from a simple voice request. Even though we are fairly tech savvy and have phone, tablets and watches that can control devices, its HUGE to just ask for something and a pleasant voice setting it in motion.
I am a regular Amazon Prime shopper and reviewer, if my review helped you in making up your mind about whether to purchase the Echo, please mark the ‘Helpful’ button, it tells Amazon that folks are in fact reading reviews like this. Thanks!

Alexa is tons of fun. Amazon is constantly adding more and more skills for her. Amazing! She is also good at keeping my calendar, giving me the traffic report for my daily work journey, weather, news and so much more!

Love it! Use it daily for a wide variety of simple tasks: weather, traffic, news, alarms, etc. It’s basically like having a smart phone “AI”, but you don’t need to have your phone in hand. Alexa is very good at picking up what you’re saying as well, so I don’t really have problems where I have to repeat things. Lot of other stuff I know Alexa can do that I haven’t tried yet, so I’m looking forward to utilizing her other features as well.
