Amazon Echo Dot - White
Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker - it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more - instantly.
Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Dot responds instantly. If you have more than one Echo device, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).
Made for any room
Sleek and compact design makes Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or use Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and shop millions of Amazon products using just your voice.
Echo Dot can also directly connect to speakers using a 3.5 mm stereo cable, or Bluetooth to add voice control to your home stereo system in the living room or den. With multi-room music support and connected speakers via cable, you can play music across multiple Echo devices (Bluetooth and Spotify not supported for multi-room music).
Voice control your music
Echo Dot provides hands-free voice control for Prime Music, Spotify, Radioplayer, and more. With Prime Music, you can search by time-period or let Alexa pick the music for you. You can also listen to Audible audiobooks, podcasts, local radio stations, news briefs, and more.
With Echo Dot, you can call almost anyone hands-free - no tapping or searching required. Your contacts will see your number when they receive the call so they know who is calling. Additionally, you can send messages via voice or text to anyone with a supported Echo device or the Alexa App.
Let your household know when dinner is ready, ask someone for help with a chore, or remind the kids to go to sleep - without having to raise your voice. With the Drop In feature enabled for room-to-room calling, instantly connect with compatible Echo devices in your home, or use Alexa Announcements to broadcast a quick, one-way message to all other Echo devices in your home.
Voice control your smart devices
Use Echo Dot to 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 at scheduled times or with a single voice command, like locking the doors and turning off the lights when you go to bed. Echo Dot works with lights, locks, switches, thermostats, and more from WeMo, Philips Hue, ecobee, and Wink and hundreds of other.
Always getting smarter
Alexa—the brain behind Echo Dot—is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter. The more you use Dot, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo Dot is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.
