Access everything from your connected devices to all your favourite technologies with the brilliant Amazon Echo.

Amazing Alexa - the brain behind the Amazon Echo, Alexa is voice service that updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning and adding new functions and skills to their repertoire. The more you use the Echo in your everyday life, the more it adapts to your speech style, vocabulary and preferences.
 
Serious skills - from ordering a takeaway meal from Just Eat to requesting a taxi from Uber, skills mean all your favourite applications can be accessed instantly. Amazon are constantly adding new skills to the Alexa app - just enable which ones you want to use, and instantly see reviews and ratings about them too.

Voice recognition makes it personal - with just a word, the Echo responds to you - just say "Alexa" to wake up your device. Far-field voice recognition means the Echo can hear you ask a question from any direction, even in noisy environments. You do not need to train Alexa to understand your voice, as the Echo works with multiple people’s voice commands straight out of the box.

Surrounding sound - with seven microphones and developed with beam-forming technology, the Echo can hear you from across the room even while music is playing. The Echo is also an expertly tuned, immersive speaker that has been designed to fill any room with its dual, downward-facing speakers. Plus, it can play your favourite music and playlists from Amazon Prime Music, Spotify and more, using just your voice.

Connect your home - the clever Echo has the ability to control lights, switches, thermostats and smart home technologies, when you pair it with compatible connected devices from Philips Hue, Hive, TP-Link, and more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by trouble with bt hub spent 3 hours trying to connect to bt router ,tried several fixes off the internet but none worked,Should have been pointed out on demonstration that there is a problem with bt routers as it is a problem for lots of people who have bought this item December 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexa Rocks So pleased with this product. Found it easy to set up to my virgin media super hub 2. Once you have downloaded the app then you can learn skills and set up your music playlists etc. Voice control your music the radio and volume. We control the lights and heating by linking our Hive system to it. Doing the cooking then just set a timer and hey presto off goes Alexa sets it up and alerts you to the time. All hands free. I am sure these are just touching the surface of what you can do if you want to set it up. The great thing is anyone of us can control it even if we have never spoken to it before. December 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by i`m in love Perfect takes a bit to set up if your on BT but there is a very easy fix on the net I`m in love with Alexa!!!! December 19, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Five Star buy Such a clever device, still exploring it's possibilities but well worth having. Grandchildren enjoying the music options. Voice activated is such a plus. Very pleased with this purchase. December 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Our friend Alexa We absolutely love Alexa being a part of our home. I love the hands free music aspect while my granddaughters love everything about her. One of them asked "will you be my friend?" and was delighted when she said yes, she loves making new friends! I had a bit of a problem trying to get her to connect to my BT hub at first, but it's worth persevering. You can ask questions about the track playing, helping your knowledge and pause a track if the phone rings. The magic door is an interactive story for the children, and there's always her jokes to get giggles too. We love having her in our home and my oldest granddaughter has asked for her own one for her birthday! December 05, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My new best friend I am loving this, simple to setup and use. It answers questions,plays music,plays the radio, I mean what more can you want..Voice control from a good distance. I have only found a few questions it couldn't answer, It's an ideal gift for the family November 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fun, fun fun! Love this! I so wanted to give it 5 stars but she struggles sometimes with what we say, don't know if it's our Scottish accents but I have to repeat myself the odd time and Alexa doesn't seem to understand my youngest (age9). The kids love her, I'm surprised it hasn't broken as they fire constant commands at her. I the youngest even got Alexa to do her homework (need to keep an eye on that). I am very forgetful so love the to do list and shopping list option. When the kids come in from school with dates for the calendar I tell Alexa. She's great for playing music especially when I'm cooking and my hands aren't free. We'll eventually get the light bulbs and sockets, as my son always sneaks his Xbox on late at night, so I'll just ask Alexa to turn his Xbox of hee hee. There is so much you can use her for, I need to sit one day and have a look, as I'm sure we're not using her to her full capabilities. I would recommend this, the only thing she needs to improve on is understanding our commands. A fun and very useful addition to our home. November 23, 2016
