With four microphones, beamforming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation, it can hear you from across the room - even while music is playing.
If you have more than one Echo, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).
The compact size and viewing angle of the screen make Echo Spot ideal for use on a nightstand or desk as a smart alarm clock.
That can also turn your lights on and off, show your commute time, get the weather, or show your calendar. Or use Spot in the kitchen to easily set and see timers, call friends and family, see shopping and to do lists and more.
Add voice control to your home stereo system in the living room or den.
With multiroom music, play your favorites throughout your home across multiple Echo devices (Bluetooth not supported for multiroom music).
Just ask Alexa for your video flash briefing from CNN, Bloomberg and more. Curious about the latest movie trailers or need a how-to video? Just ask.
Start a timer in the kitchen and watch as it counts down, or easily see and manage your family's calendar.
Sign in to the Alexa app to take your to-do and shopping lists with you. Just add an item to the list from home, and whoever is out shopping will see it added instantly on their Alexa app.

When you're busy making dinner, just ask Alexa to place a call from your Echo Spot to anyone.
You can also enable the Drop In feature for when you want to connect instantly with other Echo devices in your home or closest family and friends.
For example, you can drop in to ask what time dinner will be ready, see the baby's nursery, or check in with a close relative.
When you're away from home, use the app to make a quick call or send a message to your family's Echo.
Alexa calling and messaging is free - to get started, download the latest version of the Alexa app on a smart phone with iOS 9.0 or higher, or Android 5.0 or higher, and verify your mobile number.
Skills add even more capabilities like ordering a pizza from Domino's, requesting a ride from Uber, tracking your fitness with Fitbit, controlling your TV with Dish and more.
To enable new skills, just ask Alexa. New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about the thousands of skills available in the Alexa app.
The more you use Echo Spot, the more Alexa adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo is always connected, updates are delivered automatically. Also works with Arlo.
