The Amazon Echo device is always a favorite during the holiday season but also serves as a good gift year round. For that tech junkie you’re celebrating on Mother’s Day or if you want to help your mom and wife upgrade, the Amazon Echo is a great product for that. The Echo is one of the best audio speakers on the market and comes at a great price of just $179.99.
But what can you do with the Echo? Well, it allows you to play all of your favorite music from streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio and more. The hands-free device allows you to control it with just your voice. You can be standing near it or talk to it from across the room. That includes using it when music is playing.
It does more than just play music. The device can read back audiobooks, tell you traffic, weather, provide news updates, sports scores and more. You can even order an Uber to come pick you up or a pizza from Dominoes to be delivered to your home.
It’s simple and easy, making it a great gift idea this year. It also serves as a personal home device allowing you to control sprinklers, the temperature in your home, the alarm, garage door, fans and more. The Echo is compatible with connected home devices such as Phillips Hue, Nest, Samsung SmartThings, WeMo and more.
