Amazon Echo (2nd Gen) - Smart speaker with Alexa - Heather Grey Fabric
The Amazon Echo 2nd Generation Voice Assistant makes life easier in a surprising variety of ways.
Now a lot smaller than the original Echo, we love the black fabric finish that blends beautifully with any home decor. The speaker has also been redesigned to include a dedicated tweeter, a 2.5-inch downward-firing woofer and Dolby processing to deliver a rich audio performance that brings all your music, podcasts and radio stations to life.
Everyone has heard about Alexa - she's friendly, funny and unbelievably helpful, providing you with the latest news, playing the music you love, keeping you up with the weather and traffic, helping out with recipes and letting you control the lights and heating – all you need to do is ask!
Perhaps you want to hear a recipe while you cook or find out what the traffic is like before your morning commute. Maybe you need an alarm setting or want to know more about a news story in your area. Perhaps you're feeling peckish and want to order a takeaway or need to adjust your WiFi-enabled heating system.
Thanks to far-field audio capture technology, your Amazon Echo can hear you from across the room, through background noise. Just say the word 'Alexa' and she immediately wakes up, ready to deal with whatever you need.
Ask 'Alexa, what do I have to do today?' and she will tell you everything recorded in your Google calendar. Or end the day having a story read to you or listening to something from your Amazon music library or a streaming service such as Spotify, Pandora or Prime Music. You can also talk to anyone hands–free who also has an Echo device or the Alexa App, with no tapping or searching required.
Control lights, switches, thermostats and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, Tado and others.
With the free Alexa App on Fire OS, Android, iOS and desktop browsers, you can easily set up and manage your Amazon Echo. It keeps getting smarter too, with Amazon adding new features all the time.
