Amazon’s Alexa allows users to complete a number of tasks using voice commands. Alexa is available on a number of Amazon devices. The most popular of these devices is the Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot.
The Amazon Echo Dot is the smaller and less costly of the Amazon Echo series. This small round device is equipped to help you do a number of tasks all with your voice. You simply say “Alexa” and when the blue ring around the top of the device lights up, you can begin asking questions or giving commands.
Pretty cool huh…
One of the coolest parts about Amazon Echo Dot is its ability to help you do things hands free. So if you are busy say… Typing a paper, and you want to turn on the lights in your room or see what the weather is like outside, you can by just asking Alexa. To turn off the lights or other electronics you will need to buy some extra smart home devices but the capability is there. One of the best loved features of Amazon Amazon Echo Dot is the ability to send Text Messages without picking up your phone.
