For Christmas, I bought John an Amazon echo dot.. At first, John was very reluctant to use it. He wondered, “what the heck did she buy me? How am I supposed to be excited about this round speaker looking thing?”
Then, he plugged it in and started reading about it. He loves it!
John says, “Finally, someone who listens the very first time.” Hahaha, what a goof!
Every morning, he asks Alexa to give him a flash briefing. She tells him all of the top news stories. It is cool. The kids have gotten into the “alexa” thing too.
They are constantly asking her to tell them a joke, play jeopardy, and to open the magic door. She will also tell them a short story. Alexa also plays music directly from our pandora account or from amazon music.
John disabled the buy it now feature so she won’t be ordering anything from Amazon accidentally. 🙂
All in all, we love our little Alexa. She has been a great addition to our huge family. She is one person I haven’t had to give a second thought about adding to our family. 🙂
While I haven’t used the regular echo, I have found the echo dot is a perfect size and price for our family. They also have refurbished echo dots for about $10 less. Here is picture of our new girl…
