What is Echo Spot?

Echo Spot brings you everything you love about Alexa, in an all-new stylish and compact design that can show you things. Just ask to see the weather, get the news with a video flash briefing, set a music alarm (Amazon Music, Spotify & TuneIn supported), see lyrics with Amazon Music, see your calendar, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more. Personalise your Spot with a collection of clock faces to suit your style or set a photo background from Prime Photos. Plus, make calls to friends and family between supported Echo devices or the Alexa App, or make video calls to anyone with an Echo Spot, Echo Show or the Alexa App.

Echo Spot features second-generation far-field technology with four microphones, beam-forming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation, so it can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. If you have more than one Echo, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).

Designed for any room.

Echo Spot is small and compact, and fits easily into any room of your home. The compact size and viewing angle of the screen make Echo Spot ideal for use on a bedside table or desk as a smart alarm clock that can also turn your lights on and off, show your commute time, get the weather or show your calendar. Or use Spot in the kitchen to easily set and see timers, call friends and family, see shopping and to-do lists, and more.

Echo Spot can connect directly to speakers using a 3.5 mm stereo cable or Bluetooth to add voice control to your home stereo system in the living room. Plus, with multi-room music, play your favourites throughout your home across multiple Echo devices (available for Amazon Music, TuneIn and Spotify. Bluetooth not supported for multi-room).

Info at a glance.

For news and information you can see and hear, just ask Alexa for your video flash briefing from the BBC, The Telegraph, and more. Curious about the latest film trailers or show times?

Echo Spot helps keep you organised at home. Start a timer in the kitchen and watch as it counts down, or easily see and manage your family's calendar. Sign in to the Alexa App to take your to-do and shopping lists with you. Just add an item to the list from home, and whoever is out shopping will see it added instantly on their Alexa App.

Voice-control your music.

Echo Spot provides hands-free voice control for your music. Watch as the display comes alive to show song lyrics, curated playlists and album art with Amazon Music. Listen to 40 million songs with Amazon Music Unlimited.

Echo Spot also connects to Spotify and TuneIn, giving you voice control for all of your music. Echo Spot is Bluetooth-enabled so you can stream other popular music services such as Apple Music from your phone or tablet.

Control your smart home

Use Echo Spot to see a live camera feed from the baby’s room or your front door. Turn on the fan or dim the lights from the couch—all without lifting a finger. Control multiple devices at scheduled times or with a single voice command, like locking the doors and turning off the lights when you go to bed.

Echo Spot works with smart home devices such as cameras, lights, TVs, plugs, thermostats and more. Use compatible smart home-connected devices, including starter kits for easy setup from brands such as Ring, Arlo, Philips Hue, Ikea, TP-link, WeMo, Hive, Sony and others.

Be together more.

Make hands-free voice calls between other supported Echo devices or the Alexa App, or video calls to friends and family who have an Echo Spot, Echo Show or the Alexa App. When you're busy making dinner, just ask Alexa to place a call from your Echo Spot. You can also enable the Drop In feature for when you want to connect quickly with other Echo devices in your home or closest family and friends. For example, you can drop in to ask what time dinner will be ready, see the baby's room, or check in with a close relative.

With the Alexa App, conversations and contacts go where you go. When you're away from home, use the app to make a quick call or send a message to your family's Echo. Alexa calling and messaging is free—to get started, download the latest version of the Alexa App on a smartphone with iOS 9.0 or higher, or Android 5.0 or higher, and verify your mobile number.

Alexa has skills.

Echo Spot can use thousands of skills and counting. Skills add even more capabilities such as ordering a pizza from Domino's, tracking your fitness with Fitbit, controlling your TV with Sony, and more. To enable new skills, just ask Alexa.

New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about the thousands of skills available in the Alexa App.

Always getting smarter.

Alexa is always getting smarter—the more you use Echo Spot, the more Alexa adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary and personal preferences. And because Spot is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.

Just in the last few months we've added Alexa calling and messaging, multi-room music and reminders, along with skills from third-party developers. Explore more things to try with Alexa.
