Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music from Amazon Music Unlimited (available in 30+ countries, separate subscription required) and TuneIn (Internet radio). Play music from your own collection or services such as Spotify on Echo using your phone’s Bluetooth (no voice control). Also control compatible smart home devices, make calls or send and receive messages to other compatible Echo devices or the Alexa App (requires iOS 9.0 or Android 5.0 or higher) and more. All you have to do is ask. Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker with a 2.5" woofer and 0.6" tweeter that can fill any room with immersive sound. It has seven microphones and beamforming technology so it can hear you from across the room — even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo responds. Use the Alexa App (from iOS or Android app stores, where available) to do even more with your Echo. Skills have even more capabilities, allowing you to listen to news, control compatible smart home devices, and more. Alexa has many skills you can enable and use. New skills are being added all the time, but availability and compatibility may vary by country depending on the Alexa Skills Store.
