Meet the all-new Echo Dot
Complete any room with Alexa. Our most popular smart speaker has a sleek, compact design that fits perfectly into small spaces. It delivers crisp vocals and balanced bass for full sound you can enjoy anywhere in your home.
Alexa is happy to help
Make your life easier at home. Set timers, ask questions, add items to your to-do lists and create reminders. Check the weather, or listen to the news. Skills are like apps and add even more capabilities to your Alexa device, allowing you to listen to news, control compatible smart home devices and more. Skills are available via the Alexa Skills Store, but availability and compatibility may vary depending on the chosen language.
Voice control your home
Manage compatible smart home devices using your voice. Switch on the lamp before getting out of bed or dim the lights from the sofa to watch a film.
Stay connected and in sync
Instantly Drop-in on other rooms in your home or make an announcement to every room that has a compatible Echo device. Let everyone know dinner is ready, or remind the children that it’s bedtime. You can also stay in touch with friends and family with hands-free calling with supported Echo devices or the Alexa App.
Designed to protect your privacy
Alexa and Echo devices are built with multiple layers of privacy protection. Echo smart speakers have a Microphone Off button that disables the microphones. You also have control over your voice recordings and can view, hear or delete them at any time.
Simple to set up and use
1. Plug in Echo Dot.
2. Connect to the internet with the Alexa app.
3. Ask Alexa for music, weather, news and more.
