This looks good! I dislike dusting the echos and that you have to have a flat surface for them. Would the speaker be much cop for music?

Probably not, can't get around physics sadly.

Get a cradle for wall/plug mounting.

I can't see a volume control for this either.
Oh.....

Well that’s a shame. Thanks for the replies!
Great idea but I wouldn't expect the speaker to be up to much more than voice responses. I guess you could pair to a Bluetooth speaker. Shame they couldn't include a pass through for the socket.
Really like the look of this but trying to get away from having so many different smart technologies (Smartthings, Alexa and Google). Was leaning more towards Google before I saw this!

Pass through socket was my first thought too. Great opportunity to not only offer a pas through but a smart socket!
Great idea it’s basically a smart plug but with build in Alexa and speaker so will add things nicely around the house and once these come on special around the £10-£15 price they’ll be totally worth it
