Stop wasting time trying to find the answers to life’s everyday tasks by stopping what you’re doing to type it into your computer or phone. Instead, let Alexa do the work with Amazon’s 3rd generation Echo Dot. It’s tiny and sleek, so it blends into any room. Simply say “Alexa” within earshot, and like the most receptive secretary that you’ve never had, Alexa will listen and find your answers instantly. When you’re ready, you can use Alexa’s full (artificial) brain power by connecting your Amazon account for making orders, controlling the music you play over the speakers, or even setting the temperature and lighting in your home — all of this and more via voice command with Alexa. When your home is smart, your life becomes more efficient and easy.
