Amazon Echo Dot 2nd Generation
What’s up Everybody Dan here and you’ve just seen a few things you can do with the Amazon Echo Dot. Now this is the 2nd Gen Dot which is about 1/2 the cost of the 1st Gen model that was released in March of this year.
For those of you who don’t know the Echo Dot is a small voice controlled device that’s around the size of a hockey puck. You can use this device to play music, make to-do and shopping lists, control smart home devices, like your thermostat, lights, and even your outside water sprinkler system and so much more.
There are 7 far field microphones that will hear you from across the room even if you’re in a noisy environment for hands free control. It also has it’s own internal speaker, but there is a 3.5 mm jack that will allow you to connect speakers of your choice to the device.
BIG NOTE: This is a stand alone unit so the Original Amazon Echo is not required!
Now I’m going to cover My Top 5 Features of this 2nd Generation Amazon Echo Dot.
1. It’s much cheaper coming in with a $49.99 Price Tag which is around $30 cheaper than it’s predecessor
2. There are now 2 colors to choose from Black or White.
3. 4 buttons on the top including the Volume buttons, Mute & action button
4. This model is close to 2 inches shorter, due to the exclusion of the volume ring
5. Echo Spatial Perception this means if two echo dots are in the same general area the one you’re closest to will respond to your inquiry.
Is it Worth it to upgrade? Well if you already have the other Amazon voice controlled items in your home….probably not unless you want to add a few more to your setup. If you’ve never purchased one before, definitely scoop one up! By the way they come in several different packages, let’s check it out!
Plus there are 2 other sweet deals here, if you by the Echo Dot 6pk you get a free Dot, and if you buy the Echo Dot 12pk you get 2 free Dots
Setup is very easy- once you power up the device, the rest is done on your smartphone. I’m giving this item the Techfit360 around the world and back thumbs up!
