Smart speakers like the Echo Dot Gen 4 are all about making your life easier through voice assistance, they can be used to set timers, add items to lists, and create calendar events and reminders. You can ask questions and get answers too, for most this starts out as simple requests such as checking the traffic or getting the latest weather information, but as you add more and more smart devices, you can continue to access thousands more Alexa skills, making controlling or accessing other new devices easier than ever before.
We're all pretty familiar with the switch off the lamp while you're still in bed skill, but did you know you can make an announcement to every room that has a compatible Echo device too - this could be to let everyone know that you're going out for a bit, or that dinner is ready in 5.
Although small, the Echo Dot Gen 4 is a great little speaker for music too, and you can use your voice to play a song, artist, or genre though Spotify, iHeartRadio and more. And with multi-room music, you can fill your whole home with radio stations, podcasts, and audio books.
Another great feature of the Echo Dot is named ‘Guard’, and this is one that wants to help you keep to your home safe. Once it's set up, Alexa can send you Smart Alerts if your Echo device detects the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, or glass breaking while you're away. This can be further enhanced with smart home security products from the likes of Netgear Arlo, or Ring.
Great to have in any room or space, the Amazon Echo Dot Gen 4 is the latest smart speaker design and it fits perfectly into small spaces, delivering crisp vocals and balanced audio for full sound you can enjoy.
