Amazon Echo - Alexa-Enabled

312 reviews$180

Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It's always on—just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo begins working as soon as it detects the wake word. You can pick Alexa or Amazon as your wake word. Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound.

Echo connects to Alexa, a cloud-based voice service, to provide information, answer questions, play music, read the news, check sports scores or the weather, and more—instantly. All you have to do is ask. Echo begins working as soon as it detects the wake word. You can pick Alexa or Amazon as your wake word.

Use Echo to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn on the fan or space heater while reading in your favorite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie—all without lifting a finger...or even raising your voice.

Echo works with devices such as lights and switches from WeMo, Philips Hue, SmartThings, Insteon, and Wink. Starter kits are available for easy setup.

      Below findings were valid on Thu, Sep 17, 2015 and may be resolved / updated via future software updates by Amazon or via hacks / custom fixes contributed by the community.

      The Amazon Echo currently  (as of Thu, Sep 17, 2015) only supports time zones covered by US Zip Codes. This means that for now you will be allocated a wrong / incorrect time zone on your Amazon Echo if your time zone is not covered by a US Zip Code, which is definitely the case for users in Europe and Asia.

      The above impacts asking for the time (without mentioning your city), compatibility with your calendar and setting an alarm (specifying a time) on your Amazon Echo when you are outside the United States.

      US ZIP Codes / Locations Only
