The all new Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation Black) is scheduled for release on October 20th, 2016. Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms, and do much more if you have it properly connected to your home devices.
You can find information on Amazon echo with Amazon Echo User Guides which was posted earlier this month on this website.
Echo dot will connect to your speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn. It can easily control home lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and much more with properly compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others.
It can hear you from across the room with 7 far-field microphones for hands-free control, even in noisy environments or while playing music. It includes a built-in speaker so it can work on its own as a smart alarm clock in the bedroom, an assistant in the kitchen, or anywhere you might want a voice-controlled computer. Echo-dot is always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Domino’s, and a lot more.
The sleek and compact design makes Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or you can use Echo-Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and shop tens of millions of Amazon products using just your voice.
You can use Echo Dot to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat 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.
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. With a more powerful processor, the all-new Echo Dot has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any direction—even in noisy environments or while playing music.
Alexa—the brain behind Echo Dot—is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter. The more you use Dot, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo Dot is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.
