What Is It?

A smart speaker and voice assistant.

Why We Like It:

A fantastic addition to your family, wake up in the morning and just say “Alexa, what’s the weather going to be today?”, “Alexa, play Absolute radio” or “Alexa, what are the headlines today?”  and she will respond, with the key word, “Alexa” the Amazon Echo will answer most questions, play anything from a favourite radio station to your own downloaded music.  Use Amazon Echo to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favourite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a film—all without lifting a finger. A great asset! My mum won’t be without hers!
