Meet Alexa, our new best friend. She’s a great listener, tries to help wherever she can and is incredibly knowledgeable about pretty much anything. Plus she doesn’t drink your wine because Alexa is actually a device - a virtual assistant you’ll wonder how you lived without.
The Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses the Alexa voice service to control smart home devices, play music, provide the latest news updates, set kitchen timers and alarms and more. All you have to do is ask.
Featuring seven microphones, Alexa can pick out your requests even in noisy environments, for example when the kids are acting up (which is exactly when you need an extra helping hand the most, right?)
The beauty of the Amazon Echo Dot is that it’s always getting smarter - Alexa automatically updates through the cloud and is continually adding new features and skills.
‘Alexa, make dinner’. Ok, so it may be there quite yet, but it can tell you which family members should be home for dinner, suggest some tasty recipes, dim the lights, turn up the heating and play music, reducing the chaos of family meals just a little. And every little helps.
