Bought one last week for my mother who doesn't use computers or smartphones, but can use this to listen to the radio, music, set alarms, timers, etc.

But I see people in this thread telling me she has no use for it, so I guess I'll have to tell her that and return it.

These things (_;)

These are fab and have 3 dotted around the house. Can do lots with them but the only issue I have is remembering all the things it can do as it has sooo many skills!

HOT! - this will go nice with the Philips Hue White Personal Wireless Lighting LED Starter Kit ordered earlier today.

£24.00 in clubcard vouchers so £15.00 for my first Dot makes sense.

Why do you use a smartphone when you can use a fixed line or payphone?
Why do you own a car when you can walk, get a taxi or use public transport?
Why do you wear designer clothes or shoes when you can buy something that does the same job from Primark?

My 5 year old son doesn't have a smartphone.

Alexa, what ARE you listening to and reporting to the "man" ?

Winston Smith would be wary of these things :-(

You're meant to speak to your Echo Dot not type it in to the HUKD website.

And he doesn't use this site either I imagine.

Useless piece of junk

No but he does use the Echo Dot.

Just bought one had it a day and took it back Alexa doesn't pick anything up in a noisy house so if you have kids running about the place don't bother but if your house is quiet 24/7 then maybe yes you have been warned

I already have a dot, and got this one for the living room. Even just as a voice operated music player, it's decent value. I personally don't carry my smartphone with me around the house, and even if I did I'd have to unlock it and fiddle around with apps, so this works well. This is just much more accessible.

Can I ask if anyone had paired this with a bluetooth speaker whether the connection is reliable and whether does it time out if we don't use it for a long perioid of time?

Thanks....

I think you are mistaken.

No one has said that it isn't useful.

It is useful it's just everyone has a smartphone that does its functionality and as this is a money saving website amongst other things people have expressed it's a waste of money.

I didn't realise my smartphone was always sat in the kitchen listening for me to speak to it.

Sound like you're 70 but you're only 35 lol

I wouldn't get one of these unless you have enough things for it to integrate with. If you have smart heating, lighting and some form of music subscription then it probably adds enough convenience to make it worth it.

If you are going to just ask it things like what the weather is or what the latest news is, you might not find it that useful.

You may have had a faulty unit...the fact that these work with loads of background noise is the selling point. I can have music blaring, Xbox's on and a house full of screaming kids and it always works.

What distance were you from the device? Were you in the same room? The device should be in a suitable place and be clear of any obstructions near or on it to make sure the microphones can work properly.

If a someone makes a lot of noise during what you are going to ask/ command it then it probably won't work.

The 7 microphones on the device are meant to be able to still work in slightly noisy situations.

Hot. Bought. Echo No.2 on the way.

You would need to add the Philips Hue skill on the Alexa app.

Good grief
Here is an item that usually costs £49.99 and you can buy it for £39.

That is what hotukdeals is all about.

End of. (although probably not)

Nice - used some vouchers, so £24 for me. I've got Yeelights and Tado which works with Alexa so I can start shouting at her to 'turn the flipping lights off'.

So you don't need a PC or smartphone to use this device? Genuine question because I might get one for my mum.

Being a bit hard on yourself aren't you??

You need an internet connection, and a device to set it up with initially - there's an Alexa app on Android that I used, not sure about Apple. Once it's set up, you can just leave it on connected to wi-fi without a PC or tablet in the home. If you want to add any more functionality later, e.g. 'Amazon skills', then you'd need to use a device again to set those up.

I'm picturing you rocking back and forth with your fingers in your ears saying "Everyone has a smart phone, everyone has a smart phone"
Dude - they don't! And someone did say it wasn't useful....and even those who do have smart phones (like me) find Echo devices really useful (and BTW...not everyone has a smart phone)

"Hmm"
"I'm not sure what went wrong"
"Let me think about that"
"Hmm I don't know that one"

Drives me nuts...

I'll try not to indulge your fantasies of imagining me any further(!).

It's obvious not everyone has a smartphone you're just being pedantic. A common theme on this site.
