The 3rd generation Amazon Echo Dot boasts an industrial looking all metal design. It is covered with fabric on the sides and the top is matte plastic featuring four buttons to control volume, mute the microphones and invoke Alexa. The soft-fabric siding around the Echo Dot gives it a cozier feel and comes in three colors, allowing you to blend it in your home decor with ease.
Thanks to the 1.6-driver, the speaker is 70% louder compared to the smartest assistant. It even offers a more clear sound for Alexa’s responses and streaming music. If you have a Bluetooth speaker lying around, it is a cinch to pair the Echo Dot with it over Bluetooth or using a 3.5mm cable providing you the best of both worlds.
Bringing new capabilities to the older hardware of Echo Dot, this latest device offers some amazing cloud-based Alexa services that include streaming music, shopping from Amazon, looking up news, weather, currency conversion and more.
