Amazon Echo Smart Speaker - Sandstone
Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, ask questions, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more - instantly. All you have to do is ask.
Echo has an enhanced speaker that now features Dolby processing for improved 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 instantly.
Made for any room
Sleek and compact design makes Echo a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Echo in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or use in the kitchen to easily set timers and shop millions of Amazon products using just your voice.
Echo 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 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, 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 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 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—is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter. The more you use Echo, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.
