To call Amazon Echo a Bluetooth speaker would be a great disservice. Yes, it can play your Spotify playlists, iTunes tracks, or your Pandora from your phone or tablet, but that’s just scratching the surface of what it can do. Ask Echo a question about the news, weather, or something else, and it will use Amazon Web Services to answer you. It learns over time so it can adapt to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and your personal preferences. Best of all, it’s always on, so you don’t need to walk over and press a button to use it, simply set a voice command that will wake it up. The 360-degree audio will fill the room for the times you want to use it as a standard speaker. And, for $199 ($99 if you’re an Amazon Prime Member and hop to it), it’s a damn steal.
