Product Details

Amazon Echo Smart Speaker with Alexa (1st Generation)

Backed by the Alexa Voice Service, the Amazon Echo goes well beyond the standard capabilities of a Bluetooth speaker. Yes, it connects wirelessly to your phone or tablet and plays music and podcasts in high-quality sound, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It also connects to your home WiFi so it can answer your questions, read the news aloud, order pizza for you, and more, all at your beck and call.

Just Call on Alexa, and She’s There

All you have to do is say “Alexa,” and the Echo wakes up, ready to take your request. The unit’s seven integrated microphones use beamforming technology and enhanced noise cancellation to hear your questions and commands, even if you’re a few feet away and there’s music playing in the background. As you make more and more requests of Alexa, she learns your speech patterns, vocabulary, and preferences, making it easier for her to find whatever information you’re seeking.

Delivers High-Quality Sound

Built into the Echo are a 2.5” woofer and a 2” tweeter, each of which have been carefully tuned to project both chipper high notes and rumbly low notes throughout the room. No matter where you’re sitting, you’ll be able to enjoy the down-firing speakers, as they produce 360° sound in every direction. This design is perfect for a party; simply start a streaming service such as Spotify or Pandora on the Echo, and you’ll soon have ambient sound that can fill a room without being too loud.

Control Your Smart Home

Connect the Echo to smart home products such as Philips Hue, WeMo, Nest, and ecobee, and you won’t even have to get out of your chair to control your house’s lights or change the thermostat.

Expand Alexa’s Skills

Thanks to the Alexa app for your smartphone (available for Android and iOS devices, and Amazon products), you can add skills to Alexa’s repertoire based on what you like to do. Big on trivia? Add the Jeopardy! skill. Need a lift? Add the Uber skill. Have an insatiable hunger for pizza? Add the Domino’s skill. Because everything is based in the cloud, you won’t run out of disk space adding new skills, which are constantly being created to connect you to your favorite business and apps.

It was the only thing available that I could buy with the mandatory 24 hours I was given to use groupon bucks. I am very disappointed in your return policies, your lack of communication (through internet only) in trying to respond about a purchase. I was willing to take groupon bucks for a return but to stipulate that they are only good for 24 hours is ridiculous. Your website also responded that the items were not available so I ended up with 5 fit bits!

Ad does not tell you need a dedicated network access or purchase their network security software between $150 - $400. Return unit same day received. Software would not install on phone or PC. Tech support tries to sell you a bill of goods.
