What can Amazon Echo Dot do?

Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker, it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose.
 
Echo Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more.
 
Prime members can also ask Alexa to order eligible products they've ordered before and many Prime products. All you have to do is ask.
 
Echo Dot can hear you from across the room—even in noisy environments or while playing music. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo Dot responds. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the device you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).
 
"Alexa, find me a Chinese restaurant."
"Alexa, set a timer for 20 minutes."
"Alexa, re-order paper towels."
"Alexa, play Katy Perry."
"Alexa, what's on my calendar today?"
"Alexa, how's my commute?"
 
Made For Any Room
 
Sleek and compact design makes Amazon Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Echo Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights.
 
Or use Echo Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and more using just your voice.
 
With multi-room music support, you can play music across multiple Echo devices simultaneously.
 
Echo Dot can also directly connect to speakers using a 3.5 mm stereo cable, using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi for compatible wireless speakers to add voice control to your home stereo system in the living room. 
 
"Alexa, what's the weather in London?"
"Alexa, what's on my to-do list?"
"Alexa, pair my Bluetooth device."
 
Voice Control Your Music
 
Amazon Echo Dot provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music, just ask for your favourite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood.
 
You can also search for music by lyrics, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for you.
 
Listen to 40 million songs with Amazon Music Unlimited.

Alexa, Answer The Call
 
Introducing Alexa calling and messaging, a new way to be together with family and friends.
 
When you’re busy making dinner, just ask Alexa to place a call to anyone with a supported Echo device or the Alexa App.
 
You can also enable a new feature called Drop In for the special cases when you want to connect with your closest friends and family or other Echo devices in your home.
 
With the Alexa App, conversations and contacts go where you go. When you’re away from home, use the app to make a quick call or send a message to your family’s Echo.
 
Alexa calling and messaging is available within the United Kingdom, and at no additional cost, to get started download the Alexa App on iOS and Android smartphones.
 
"Alexa, call Dad."
"Alexa, send a message to Andy."
"Alexa, drop in on the kitchen."
 
Control Your Smart Home
 
Use Amazon Echo Dot to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favourite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a film, all without lifting a finger… or even raising your voice.
 
Echo Dot works with smart home devices such as lights, switches, TVs thermostats and more from WeMo, Samsung SmartThings, Philips Hue, Sony, Hive, Netatmo, Tado°, Tp-link, Nest and others.
 
Echo Dot now supports IFTTT (If This, Then That), a third-party service that allows you to create rules (or “applets”) that automate how your devices, apps and websites work with each other.
 
"Alexa, turn on the lights."
"Alexa, turn off the bedside lamp."
"Alexa, turn on my living room fan."
"Alexa, dim the dining room lights."
"Alexa, set the master bedroom to 20 degrees."
"Alexa, turn on the coffee machine."
 
Far-Field Voice Recognition
 
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation.
 
With far-field voice recognition, Amazon Echo Dot can hear you ask a question from any direction, even in noisy environments or while playing music.
 
When you want to use Echo Dot, simply say the wake word, “Alexa”, and Echo Dot lights up and streams audio to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service is leveraged to recognise and respond to your request.
 
Always Getting Smarter
 
Alexa, the brain behind Amazon Echo Dot, updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning, adding new functionality and skills.
 
The more you use Echo Dot, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary and personal preferences.
 
More functions have been added such as Alexa calling and messaging, multi-room music, Amazon order tracking, IFTTT, local search from Yelp, movie showtimes, Google and Outlook.com calendar support, Audible audiobooks, text-to-speech for Kindle eBooks and thousands of new skills from third-party developers.

Skills add even more capabilities such as ordering take away from Just Eat, requesting a ride from Uber, checking train times from National Rail and more.
 
Enabling skills lets your Amazon Echo Dot do even more, simply discover and enable the skills you want to use in the Alexa App.
 
New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about skills in the Alexa App.
