You have tested Alexa and want to buy an Amazon Echo? Here is a quick presentation of the Echo lineup.
Amazon Echo –
Launched last year, Echo is a cylindrical connected speaker. It allows you to control your smart home simply by using the word “Alexa”. It is also Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatible. Unlike Tap, which has an integrated battery, the Amazon Echo needs to be plugged in. Ask Alexa for music, news or weather forecast.
Amazon Tap –
Amazon released this year 2 siblings to the Amazon Echo: Tap is one of them. Cheaper than Echo, it is also more portable and smaller. Tap is wireless and has a 9 hours of playback capacity with its battery when it is fully charged. You can also use Alexa as a vocal assistant on Amazon Tap. However, you will need to press a button to use it as opposed as Alexa’s Echo, which is always listening. Tap is more music-oriented than Echo or Dot.
Amazon Echo Dot –
Echo Dot has the same features as Echo besides the speaker. But if you want to use Echo Dot for your music, you can still connect it to your audio system. Echo Dot is as smart as Echo, but half the price.
