Meet Alexa, the brain behind Echo
Alexa, the brain behind Echo Dot, is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter. The more you use Dot, the more Alexa adapts to your speech patterns and vocabulary. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question just ask and Alexa will respond instantly.
Make everyday easier
Sleek and compact design makes Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. You can place Dot in the bedroom and use it to play music, set alarms and turn off your lights. Or put it in the living room to check news, sports scores, calendar, and movie show times. Or use it in the kitchen to set timers, add items to lists and shop for millions of products on Amazon just using your voice.
Voice control your music
Echo Dot streams music from Amazon Prime Music, Saavn, Gaana, Hungama Music and TuneIn - just ask for your favorite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. Search for music by album, decade, or let Alexa pick the music for you. Or wake up to your favorite music by setting a musical alarm. With Amazon Prime Music, you can also create and manage your personal playlist.
Voice control your home
Use Echo Dot to switch on the geyser before getting out of bed or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie all without lifting a finger or even raising your voice. Echo Dot works with compatible smart home devices - either Wi-Fi based or those that ship with their own hub.
With Routines , control multiple devices at scheduled times or with a single voice command, like switch on the AC and turn off the lights every night.
You can also pair Fire TV and Echo devices, allowing you to control your Fire TV with Alexa.

Use Echo Dot to call or message anyone who has an Echo device or the Alexa app. Just ask Alexa to place a call to Mom or send a quick voice message to a friend.
