So does this do all the same things as an Alexa Echo device?

Sorry I do not know the product. But I would assume that it should offer the same functionality as an Alexa. For the price I found this quite an interesting alternative - if indeed Alexa works as with the original.

Sometimes they can be a cut down version, if would have to very good to compare to the 3rd gen dot at £30 At the moment.
Alexa, is this a hot deal?
Can't sound any worse than the echo
Probably better sound than the Echo Dot, but for Alexa functionality, I prefer the original brand, or to pay slightly more and get a proper brand. The Onkyo is still £49 at Richer Sounds and I am sure is far superior. Nothing against this 'brand' particularly that my Accoustic Solutions TV lasted 9 years, while the Sony only 7.

I don't think it has full connectivity of alexia more like a stripped down version and requires a seperate app to set up might be okay as a speaker or online radio player don't think you can group call or cast on to it via alexa app

Got one of these at £50, also have a 3rd gen Echo. This is louder, sound quality is decent for what it is, Alexa is a little slower responding than the echo, but seems to do everything the Echo does that I’ve tried so far (Hue bulb, Tile and Amazon music).
This also has the advantage and being able to Bluetooth or Airplay music from your phone etc, which is why I bought it over another Echo.
Has a decent app that allows music to be played from fileshares and Plex as well as other streaming services.
I’d recommend it for the Airplay feature alone.

Edit: buttons on the top are a bit rubbish compared to the Echo but not a deal breaker

I disagree with you ginguskahn, this is not user friendly at all. The app is dreadful and connection can be a nightmare. It only recognises 2.4 WiFi networks which can be bad for modern routers. The only decent thing is the Bluetooth. Stick to the dot!

Not had a problem with either, I’m on iPhone, can’t speak for Android. Setup was easy and while the app isn’t pretty, I had no problem with it in regards to it working.

That's your experience.

Let me just say that if your not tech savvy, steer well clear.

I'm planning on buying the Onkyo, mainly to get better sound in a smallish speaker, compared to the Google mini.

Reviews suggest it takes a while to set up Alexa, but I think is worth the hassle considering the brand, quality and especially the price, that one worth well over £49. If you are looking for Google instead of Alexa, make sure you get the square one, as the round one will only work with Alexa. My understanding is the Google one is easier to set up.

Thanks for your advice.
Yes, I knew about the different models for Google and Alexa.
Reviews seem to suggest that the square speaker has the better sound quality, good to know it is easier to set up too.

Yes, I read the same. But 'thanks' to my wife, my house is packed with Alexa, as I was tempted to go with the square one. Nearly got the round one, but my wife brought another Alexa in the house:) Nothing against Alexa, but out of principle I would have gone for Google.
I don't really know much about these so excuse the silly question... but can you use your Amazon prime music with this??
Thank you.
