Now featuring Dolby processing, the Amazon Echo (Gen2) offers a sound improvement to this class-leading smart speaker.

Now with Dolby processing for immersive sound

Utilising Dolby processing, the Echo (Gen 2) sounds better than ever. Combined with the woofer and tweeter speaker array, it gives the Echo a totally immersive, 360-degree sound. Crisp treble, natural-sounding vocals and deep bass combine to make the Echo a seamless and room-filling speaker.

Connect to the Internet and go
Setting up an Amazon Echo is easy. Simply plug it in, connect to your Wi-Fi and you're good to go. Easy access to a massive range of tailored services is just a voice command away.

Voice recognition
Simply say the word "Alexa" and request what you'd like to listen to and from which service. This could be as general as, "Alexa, play indie from the 90s." To something more specific, such as, "Alexa, Play Despacito from Spotify." (Premium Spotify account required). You can even sing some of the song for Echo (Gen 2) to find them on Amazon Music Unlimited! With seven microphones and far-field voice recognition, Echo (Gen2) hears you anywhere in the room, even in noisy environments or when playing music. For privacy, the microphone can be switched off.

Bluetooth enabled
As well as connecting to your Wi-Fi, Echo (Gen 2) also connects to local devices via Bluetooth. This lets you stream popular music services like Spotify or Amazon Music directly from your phone or tablet.

Smart ability
As well as playing back music, Echo (Gen 2) also works with third party Alexa Skills to provide news, weather, recipes and much more. Some of the connected services currently include Just Eat, Uber, Jamie Oliver, EDF, Sky Scanner and National Rail. The list is growing continuously, while at the same time Alexa becomes smarter. For example, you can now send messages via voice or text to anyone with an Echo device or the Alexa App. Alexa calling and messaging is available at no additional cost—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. As with the music service, voice control lets you order a taxi, check your train times or order food - all via a simple voice request to Echo (Gen 2).

Control your smart home
As part of your smart home system, Echo works with systems such as Nest, Hive and Philips Hue, giving you voice control of your lighting and heating systems. Ask Alexa to switch the lights on before your get out of bed or reduce the temperature once you're in - a simple voice command does it all!

Alexa app
For when voice control may not be practical, there's the comprehensive Alexa app to hand. Available for Apple iOS, Android and Fire OS systems. The app connects to existing services you may already use, such as Spotify and Google Calendar. It also lets you set up smart home devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo and more.

For a smarter speaker with top quality sound, just ask Alexa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazon Echo Got my Echo on Special and saved big time , this little thing has so many hidden attributes and i'm sure I have not found them all yet . the one that has given me the most pleasure so far is the night sounds it plays soothing sounds such as waves on the beach or a thunderstorm if thats your thing and turns itself off after an hour.Love going to bed now would be good for kids too. Sure i'll find lots more to do ie it remembers a shopping list . VERY happy with my purchase

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive sound from small speaker Still investigating its possibilities, but after initial internet connection problems the Echo is working well, even if Alexa seems to have problems in understanding an Oldham accent! Sound quality does not match that from traditional speakers, but is still surprisingly good from such a compact unit. No disappointing aspects identified so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge fun! Buying one for my son and fiancée as a Christmas present made for an hilarious party! Fascinating and intriguing. Amazing quality and volume of sound from such a small "enclosure". Dead easy to set up. Recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin... I bought the Echo two weeks ago and have been pleasantly surprised so far. *Disclaimer* I do not use it for the whole home automation stack. However, I wanted a slightly more intelligent Bluetooth speaker and the Echo delivers. I previously had a JBL Bluetooth dock and the sound is comparable for half the price, with added voice recognition software.
