Hard to navigate, excruciatingly slow, not enough organization options, and just generally unpleasant to use as a smart home controller, the Alexa app is ripe for a makeover. Silent Shout” is a particularly punishing sub-bass-heavy song, though, and the Echo Dot sounds significantly better with other music. For example, it is possible to ask Alexa to delete the history of content, voice requests, detected sounds and even commands given to elements of the smart-home system. I set it to turn up the AC when it gets too warm in the kitchen, and it worked reliably without me having to ask Alexa to adjust the Ecobee thermostat while I toiled over a hot stove. It uses Eero’s TrueMesh software technology, tapping into the dual-band Wi-Fi radios in the speakers to find the strongest connection and then extend it.

The only thing that bothers me personally often, my son's name is similar so the often reacts at Aless. Powered by Alexa, the Dot can do most everything its bigger siblings can, including stream music, set timers, run Alexa Routines, control smart home devices, play games, tell jokes, and work as a home intercom and telephone. When you’re away from home, you can log in to the Alexa app and view your home through the eyes of the Echo Show 10, and you can even control where it turns, swivelling it left and right by swiping the camera’s view inside the app. Meanwhile, the Pop was better when listening to voices -- with clearer vocals and better enunciation in podcasts or even just with Alexa's voice. Finally, something which promises to be big but sadly isn’t available in the UK at the time of writing.You're also getting new home security features with Alexa Guard, so you can keep an eye on your home from the display and get alerts to your phone when motion or sound is detected. Hey Alexa,” said in pretty much any tone of voice or accent grabs her attention, while a wide range of voice-activated functions is supported, including setting alarms, receiving weather forecasts and playing music on the platform of your choosing. In both places, its glanceable display proved more useful than the regular Dot; the clock is especially handy on busy mornings when we’re trying to get out the door on time.

The Echo Dot with Clock has long been my favorite small smart speaker, and with these improvements, it’s now my go-to smart alarm clock. Echo Dot + Fire TV - Watch TV with immersive sound when you set up Alexa Home Cinema with compatible devices.

We’ve been using these Alexa devices in our home for months, testing them out with a bunch of different use cases. Whispering to Alexa while music is playing is a great party trick, and that worked flawlessly on this Dot. The Dot can also get pretty loud, although not quite as loud as Google’s Home Mini, and the audio starts to distort in high-energy tracks at maximum volume. The camera can centre you in the frame, but it won’t pan and track you around the room like the Echo show 10.

Now, in addition to displaying the time, volume level, alarms, and timers, the Dot can show a scrolling weather forecast, song title, and other text responses to queries. We think it’s a good one to keep handy while you’re cooking, so you don’t have to come away from the stove to change the music while making dinner or set a timer while the pasta boils, for example.

Where Google’s Assistant has the edge is in interpreting speech when you mess up your questions, or when you issue multiple commands at once such as “turn off the Christmas tree and the living room lights”.
