Amazon Echo Review: The Speaker With Alexa


hey thus rock-paper-scissors okay allow’s play 3 two one rock alright hey everybody Tim Schofield right here from Cuba twist 77 come right here to assess the Amazon.com resemble the Bluetooth speaker made by Amazon.com in fact they’re trying to expand their mobile technology line I presume in anyways it’s a not just a Bluetooth audio speaker yet it additionally connects to your Wi-Fi network too to pull tracks music from amazon prime prime etcetera I’ll get to that in simply a second you’ll see it also features a remote also that you can control it so if you don’t desire to use hands-free you can make use of a remote and additionally it does not have a battery so you’ll see I have a power cord right below as well as it simply sort of connects to the wall surface so essentially it’s type of made to remain inside the map stating hey go to the beach take this with obviously since you have power adapters there but it’s quite portable as you can see it’s it’s got some weight to it though I can do some bicep swirls with it however I imply it’s relatively light rather mobile I imply it wants to disconnect it has no power so it’s not going to function as soon as you connect it back in you’ll need to wait a bit of time for power back up now

taking a look at the layout as you can see it claims Amazon right here it has 360-degree audio which is terrific I enjoy that in a Bluetooth speaker because it’s not one directional it’s mosting likely to go in all directions if you establish it in the facility of a space etc really basic very cylindrical you’ll see you have the power wire down near the bottom and after that up on top actually have a pair buttons you have a mute button mute the microphone button so it does not actually trigger everything when you’re saying certain words or anything if you intend to silence it and afterwards an action switch right here which will certainly trigger it too additionally you have a volume control up on top that you can in fact rotate so I’m in fact rotating the clap of it right below and also you’ll see the volume control is determined by this white light this white LED called up the top and also as I transform it up it copulates up or I can transform it down there’s 3 ways to transform the volume actually you can trigger it so if I push this button which I said did trigger it quantity six there you go alter the volume to degree 6 you can likewise transform it via the remote here which I’ll reach in just a sec a little bit extra thorough and also

Of training course you can transform it like I revealed earlier now there’s 3 means to activate the audio speaker for your hands-free controls whether you’re changing a song altering the volume asking it a concern we’ll speak regarding that in just a 2nd the three ways like I claimed this button up at the top that’s the action switch it has a crucial trigger word in your your voice as well and also after that the Micra your remote has a microphone built-in and it also has a button that you can push currently the trigger word you have 2 choices you can not tailor it you can either claim a lexer or Amazon and also what’s wonderful concerning it is it does a really good job at noticing it currently the trigger word that I’m making use of right now is Alexa as well as you’ll discover that it does not activate it at all due to the fact that it knows I’m chatting in a sentence however if I was quiet for simply a little bit and also I desired to trigger it Alexa what’s the climate like outdoors right currently in champagne at 17 levels with cloudy skies there you go so forecast has snow flurries with a high of 21 and a low of 6 ok so as you can see when I set it with in discussion it did

acknowledge it which is good for me I know a great deal of you guys are gon na have this concern my sis’s name is actually Alexa so you’ll see it doesn’t recognize it when I say it there since I’m chatting in a sentence which is excellent so will unpleasant for me but like I stated you can change it from Alexa to Amazon.com currently allow’s proceed and chat concerning the remote for the Amazon.com resemble it does come come right with it it includes two three-way A batteries as well the power it so it comes with that as well in situation you were questioning it likewise features 2 pieces I’ll discuss that in simply a second now the first one being the remote certainly you have controls all up on top you have a microphone there if you want don’t allow hands-free you have volume backwards and forwards miss left back as well as forward and also then play pause too so quite sturdy rather comfy in your hand and after that likewise this various other piece right here in fact which serves as a remote holder so it comes with a glue which I don’t carry it now it’s simply a sticker quite a lot as well as you can stick it anywhere whether you desire it to be on a night table or a workdesk or something like that if

somewhere you can stick it as well as after that it works as a holder for your remote as well as it’s magnetic so you’ll see below boom extremely magnetic really strong as well so you know when you establish it down it’s not truly mosting likely to go anywhere so that’s the entire factor of this little piece now for the objective of this video clip the rest of the time I’m mosting likely to be utilizing this remote even if I don’t want to say Alexa each and every single time I wish to speak with it so I’m going to push this and utilize the mic now let’s go on and also speak about audio high quality one of the main points that I search for in a Bluetooth audio speaker among them being naturally where you can pull your music from currently you have a bunch of different sources you have pride songs if you have a prime account that’s type of a stipulation you need to have a prime account you can submit songs to an Amazon account I think it just takes 200 though so afterwards you have to pay for even more storage space I Heart Radio you have tuned in too I assume Pandora’s coming soon iTunes Control also is mosting likely to come soon currently I desire to go

ahead as well as do an examination song for you guys I’m mosting likely to turn it down as well as after that I’m likewise mosting likely to transform it all the way up so beware if you remain in a quiet environment you got earphones on you might intend to just I’m mosting likely to transform it up with the remote so you’ll see the light indicate alright so time to do a fast audio check I have a connected through bluetooth to my lg g3 right below as well as what I’m mosting likely to do is I’m going to play this tune club smack by Gunnar Olsen for a little while I’m mosting likely to start with the volume reduced and I’m going to enhance it all the method and also I’m likewise videotaping this sound using this mic right here so I’m mosting likely to place the mic a bit more away so it’s not blowing up straight right into the microphone so allow’s go on and also evaluate it out okay so as you can hear it really gets quite loud so those are you wondering if it gets audible it absolutely fills out a space if those of a cooking area a physical living room it gets very loud so I would certainly say southpaw as well as audio quality is excellent too basses are quite low yet as well as also when it’s all the method up the sound top quality is still rather clear currently the Amazon echo is a bit more

conversational when it concerns voice comments such as Google currently or Siri it’s possibly more on the Siri side with if you ask it a concern it can sort of come back with something rather than just info so how are you fantastic prepared to help as well as likewise as you saw initially of video clip rock-paper-scissors or inform me a joke a steak word play here is an uncommon tool well done there you go but not just kind of do conversational things that can do valuable points of program it has a friend application which I’ll chat about in the direction of completion of the video which you can sort of customize particular things and also it will actually provide you lists that you make within just your voice commands as well as it will certainly toss it on to your phone so for instance if I stated what is on my purchasing list you have one thing on your buying checklist bread and bananas all right apparently bread and bananas are one item maybe I didn’t divide it with a comma or something like that as well as there’s also something you ‘d say like what’s on my order of business you have 3 two dues stroll the pets at 6:00 p.m. look for Bluetooth dinner bookings all right so I simply type of set those up formerly as well as you might just claim hello add this to my to do checklist and afterwards you can ask her again as well as like I claimed it’ll show up in your dedicates companion application too now I simply kind of wish to show you some features that it has I’m just mosting likely to ask it some quick concerns and you people can check it out Wikipedia Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th Head Of State of the United States offering from March 1861 till his murder in April 1865 what is the funding of France Frances resources city is Paris when the Blackhawks came on February 24th Chicago Blackhawks beat Florida Panthers 3 to two in overtime as well as they will certainly play this Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the house versus Edmonton Oilers that’s when I virtually make use of all the time it’s sort of nice it says if they desire and afterwards when their following game is too send alarm system for 6:00 p. m. alarm system set for 6 o’clock this night that’s one I use a whole lot off than 2 if I’m taking a fast snooze or something it’ll set alarm oh fast and also it’ll just sort of go off for me and then if you intend to actually close the alarm system off you need to talk with it I think you could most likely utilize the remote also yet I locate myself when I state something like hey Alexa quit after that it’s going

to really wake me up a little bit a lot more all right yet that suffices just examples when it involves voice commands it’s just sort of an added benefit to the Bluetooth audio speaker side of it in my viewpoint honestly you’ll find some points that will just resemble I don’t recognize the response to that or something like that you type of requirement to recognize the ideal things to ask it to see to it you obtain the suitable response like like I said Wikipedia Abraham Lincoln you require to understand that you can actually such as go with Wikipedia rather than just stating hello that is Abraham Lincoln I imply that may work however in particular instances you need to know the in fact appropriate thing to examine it gives you examples of the companion application so allow’s speak about that now all right so I desire to go as well as discuss the companion app with the Amazon.com resemble so we’re mosting likely to fill it up you’ll see it’s in a play store right below Amazon echo I am currently attached using bluetooth however I don’t believe you require to either just be on the Wi-Fi network due to the fact that the the echo is really on your Wi-Fi network as well great so right now in your house it provides you a listing of points that you have provided voice commands to your echo so you’ll see set an alarm for 6:00 p.m. Right below and also it claims alarm Oh set it allows you understand did it hear you properly hit yes or no that’s better for voice recognition to do something like that or you can eliminate the card as well I asked it the blackhawks score is well it gave me the rating of the video game I asked what the resources of France existed I suggest just provides you all this details regarding I guess what it stated and what you claimed as well and also where it obtained its details from so that’s really wonderful actually I’m going to swipe over as well as it provides you an order of business I chatted about that earlier just something you can include personally simply inputting things or voice commands you’ll see stroll the pet dog 6:00 p.m. Particular things save their grocery store list those are just 2 things you can include to you have a timer you have an alarm currently playing just offers you an idea of what’s playing if you regulate it to play something over Wi-Fi if you ask it to play a prime playlist you might simply see here’s the different play playlist that you can play once again through prime music you require a prime account so you just type of keep that in mind if I revoke this swipe over you have Amazon.com songs right below so you’ll see automobile

playlist imported acquisition like I said you can post songs to Amazon.com songs so these are all tunes I’ve actually directly uploaded as well as I imply I just submitted a few of them I think you only get 200 free of cost like I claimed swiping on over and afterwards you I Heart Radio listen too things to try which is a nice touch because there’s so lots of that you can do with do more with record allow’s just try that I’ll play custom stations area particular info and also songs like I said you can make use of different things from iTunes Windows Media Player you just submit it to your Amazon account mean to press that as well as after that allow’s return like I claimed you can voice train also one last thing I wish to speak regarding is when you go into setups in fact I wish to chat concerning flash briefing that’s kind of neat attribute you can personalize the news that it reads off so if you remain in the early morning preparing yourself as well as you intend to listen to MPR news BBC radio and then other various news you can just sale Alexa inform me the news all right so it’ll say below’s your flash instruction see information from Tim and after that it’s mosting likely to go through and also simply kind of do everything so I’m mosting likely to close that off yet it’ll make use of whatever you I imply tailor right below and tell you the the information I utilize it in the early morning it’s sort of great however anyways that’s practically it with

the companion application okay currently I wish to provide some last ideas on the Amazon echo below now like I claimed it does not have a battery so you have to plug it in anywhere it does not take long to boot up or anything so it is mobile it’s light but you can’t bring it outside or anything however if you’re trying to find a Bluetooth speaker with some strong audio it does have great audio as I revealed earlier and discussed it’s a rather strong gadget in fact I would certainly claim I got it for $100 due to the fact that I was a very early I’m member that got accessibility to it so if you can get it for $100 I claim it’s a go for 200 I think that may be simply a bit high for it especially since it does not have a battery inside but anyways with the included voice function it’s simply sort of an included feature to the Bluetooth speaker itself I mean you can just link your phone to it as well as play any kind of audio out of it the microphone works truly well the voice recognition as well.look jobs truly well as I spoke about previously but in general like I claimed I got it for $100 so I would certainly claim it’s a strong bargain for 100 for certain particularly if you’re in the market for a Bluetooth speaker and also do not mind keeping it inside I mean it’s something you can take to a resort room and so on yet if you intend to go outside with the Bluetooth speaker hand down this due to the fact that you require an electrical outlet but anyways that’s it people hopefully like my evaluation of the Amazon.com resemble if you do I’ll be making a lot much more on different mobile technology primarily Android and also various other points so make certain to subscribe to me you can follow me on Facebook Twitter Google Plus all links in the description vide below and also as always men thanks quite
