Amazon has announced that Echo Spot, the newest addition to the Echo family, is now available in Ireland. Echo Spot delivers everything you love about Alexa with a smaller design and the added convenience of a circular screen so that Alexa can show you things. Customers can order from www.amazon.co.uk/echospot and pay in Euro at checkout.
“Echo Spot combines the popular small design of Echo Dot with the added benefit of a display, and all the things you love about Alexa into a stylish, compact device,” said Jorrit Van der Meulen, Vice President, Amazon Devices International. “See the weather, watch video news briefings, glance at your alarm clock, make video calls, and more. We think customers in Ireland will find lots of places for Echo Spot in their homes.”
Designed for any room, with the added convenience of a screen
Echo Spot fits easily into any room of your home. The size and viewing angle of the screen make Echo Spot ideal for use on a desk or nightstand so you can turn your lights on and off, watch a video flash briefing from RTÉ News, get the weather, check the time, wake up to music alarms, or view your calendar. You can also use Echo Spot in the kitchen to easily set and view timers, watch videos, call friends and family, see shopping and to-do lists, and more.
New microphone array with second-generation far-field technology
Echo Spot features second-generation far-field technology with four microphones, acoustic beam-forming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation so it can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. If you have more than one Echo, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you’re closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).
Front-facing camera and Alexa calling help you stay connected—call anyone hands free
Put an Echo Spot in each room and use the Drop In feature to connect, hands-free, with other devices in your home. Drop in on the kitchen to ask when dinner will be ready, or drop in on the living room to see how homework is going. You can also use Echo Spot to start a voice or video call, or send a message—simply say, “Alexa, call dad,” or “Alexa, send a message to Mary.”
Built-in speaker, plus Bluetooth and audio-out to connect to your existing speaker systems
Alexa can talk to you and play music on Echo Spot through the built-in 2W speaker. Echo Spot can also directly connect to speakers through Bluetooth or using a 3.5mm stereo cable, enabling you to add Alexa to your home entertainment system. Then, use just your voice to control Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn, and more. Plus, with the multi-room music feature, you can play your favourites throughout your home, with synchronised music across all of your Echo devices.
Easily control your smart home
With compatible smart home devices, Echo Spot can integrate all of the smart home capabilities that customers love about Alexa—turn on the lights, view your live camera feed from the nursery, set up Routines, control the temperature, lock your doors with your voice when you’re heading to bed, and more.
