Alexa, do I have anything on my calendar today? Alexa, can you request a ride? Alexa, how is my fitness today?
Ask and you shall receive. The Amazon Echo Dot personal assistant--the scaled-down sibling of the larger Amazon Echo--caters to your needs by way of voice commands. Alexa, what else can the Echo Dot 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 built-in 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, 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.
