While the Echo and its Alexa digital assistant are designed to work within Amazon’s ecosystem, you’re not forced into using Amazon’s music service. If you prefer to use Spotify, Pandora, or iHeartRadio to stream your favorite tunes, you can easily use them on your Echo.
As a smart speaker, listening to music and audiobooks on Echo is a massive part of its appeal. However, there’s a lot more to the built-in Alexa service than you’d expect. You can hear news updates, receive weather reports, set reminders, and even play games. And if you’re wondering what date Thanksgiving falls on this year, or who’s the current governor of Arkansas, the answer is just one verbal command away.
Have you invested in a wide range of smart home devices? If so, Alexa is a fantastic way to control every aspect of your home. You can unlock the door for a friend, turn up the thermostat, and even turn on your sprinklers without having to leave the comfort of your couch.
Here at PCMag, the Echo is an Editors’ Choice. While the reviewers noted that there are some limitations around communications, and the very highest volume setting does suffer from distortion, the excellent feature set makes this a superb purchase.
