Amazon Echo is a wireless speaker and voice-activated command device that helps a user activate a growing list of smart skills and applications. With seven built-in microphones to detect “far-field” voices, the Echo is able to hear voice commands from across the room or in the midst of environmental noise, so you won’t need a separate smart phone or remote for general usage. The device responds to the name “Alexa,” but you can program her to respond to “Amazon” or “Echo” instead. The available list of skills continues to grow, while deeper native device integrations are also on the rise. With the right skills, you can ask Alexa to stream songs, read chapters of an audiobook, monitor your car, manage a connected home, tell you jokes and much more.
