Alexa, what's the weather going to be like today?
What time is dinner on Thursday?
Can you order me a pizza?
Ask and you shall receive. The Amazon Echo personal assistant caters to your needs by way of voice commands. Alexa, what else can the Echo do?
Well, it also lets you catch up on the news, tune into the radio, and get sports scores using a cloud-based voice service that keeps learning and adding new features all the time. Pop on a streaming service and enjoy immersive sound from the 360-degree omnidirectional speaker, or ask Alexa to set a timer so you don't accidentally burn the pie. You can even connect to select Wink, Belkin WeMo, TP Link, and Philips Hue devices--so you can make lighting changes using the sound of your voice without leaving the comfort of your couch. From Amazon.
You'll start off with plenty to listen to, including two months of Amazon Music Unlimited--and new subscribers get one trial month on top of that--as well as three Audible audiobooks for new subscribers. Plus, a Garth Brooks CD loaded with two albums lets you turn the clock back and give your CD player some much-needed attention.
