Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you can control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to:
- Play music
- Ask questions
- Shop Amazon (after enabling "Voice Purchasing" in Settings)
- Make calls on your supported mobile phone or tablet
- Send and receive text messages
- Provide information
- Sports scores
- Weather and more--instantly.
All you have to do is ask.
With seven microphones, beamforming technology, and noise cancellation, Echo hears you from any direction—even while music is playing.
Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new features and skills. Just ask Alexa to control your TV, request an Uber, order a pizza, and more.
Just ask for a song, artist, or genre from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more. With multi-room music, you can play music on compatible Echo devices in different rooms.
Call Friends and Family
Call or message almost anyone hands-free with your Echo device. Also, instantly connect to other Echo devices in your home using just your voice.
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. Ask Alexa to turn on the TV, turn up the volume, change the channel, or play your favorite movie.
Echo works with lights, locks, switches, thermostats, and more from WeMo, Philips Hue, SmartThings, Insteon, Nest, ecobee, and Wink.
