The Echo Spot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, read the news, set music alarms, and read audiobooks from Audible (like, literally I have told her to tell me a bedtime story and she does a way better job of it than my spouse — and with far less complaining). It can also control Amazon Video on Fire TV, give random facts throughout the day, tell you the weather (which I use literally every morning instead of just opening my curtains and letting in some light), and can show you grocery lists, recipes, and set timers... I'm still just trying to figure out what my Echo Spot CAN'T do.
Promising review: "I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house, from my locks to my thermostats. I have one Echo, four Echo Dots and now one Echo Spot. I love this. It works as expected. I am a total Apple guy but I choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!" —Apply Guy
