What is Amazon Echo? Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, answer questions, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. All you have to do is ask. Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound. It has seven microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you from across the room - even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo, just say the wake word, "Alexa", and Echo lights up and responds to your request. Voice control your music The 2nd generation Amazon Echo has a 2.5" downward-firing woofer and 0.6" tweeter powered by Dolby, delivering crisp vocals and dynamic bass throughout the room. You can play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and more. With Amazon Music, you can search by lyrics, time period or let Alexa pick the music for you. "Alexa, play music everywhere." Want to play music on an Echo in another room? Now with multi-room music, you can tell Alexa to play across your Echo devices-available for Amazon Music, TuneIn and Spotify; Bluetooth not supported.
