Introducing the 3rd Gen Echo Dot
Coming with improved sound and a new design, your favorite voice-controlled speaker Echo Dot has now got better. Activate your smart digital assistant Alexa by your voice to play songs, ask weather, set timers, and more. You can also control compatible smart devices all without lifting a finger. Beyond the existing more than 50,000 skills in the Alexa App, new skills are being added all the time.
"Alexa, play to hits"
Use your voice to play a song, artist, or genre through Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, and others. With compatible Echo devices in different rooms, you can fill your whole home with music. Also listen to Audible, podcasts, radio stations, or pair with Fire TV to voice control movies and entertainment.
Always ready to help
Make your life easier at home. Use your voice to set timers, add items to lists, and create calendar events and reminders. You can also check the news, weather, or traffic. Ask for sports scores, movie showtimes, restaurant hours, or information.
Voice control your smart home
Switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn on the coffee maker on your way to the kitchen, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie - all without lifting a finger. Control multiple devices with a single voice command, like locking the doors and turning off the lights at night.
Connect with others
Call almost anyone hands-free using your voice. Use Drop In to instantly connect to another compatible Echo at home or send an announcement across Echo devices, like calling the family for dinner or reminding the kids to go to bed.
Alexa has skills
Alexa has more than 50,000 skills and counting. Skills are like apps and help you do more such as playing Jeopardy! meditating with Headspace, and falling asleep to rain sounds. Create your own personal skills and custom responses with Alexa Skill Blueprints. Just say "Alexa, help me get started with skills."
New skills are being added all the time. Discover them in the skills section of the Alexa app or visit the skills store.
