Have you heard of Amazon Echo? This is an amazing and fun technology device that almost anyone can operate -- no technical knowledge is required! Echo can play music, share news, remember lists, and more!
Amazon Echo is like a personal robotic computer assistant. Users can ask Echo questions, from simple queries like "What's the weather going to be in two days" to more complicated requests like reading Wikipedia articles or sharing local headlines when you ask, "What's the latest news?" Echo can also read audiobooks, traffic reports, sports scores, tell you who sings that song that you have on the tip of your tongue, and so much more. If the information can be found in the cloud, Echo can tell it to you. Tasks like setting an alarm or timer and noting items for a to-do list are also handy features.
Integration with smart home devices also make Echo a powerful tool. With compatible technologies, Echo can do things like adjust room lights, temperature, and other electronically controlled machines, using simple voice commands.
Hundreds of services like Uber ride sharing, pizza delivery from national chains, and others are integrated into Echo's abilities.
While set up is fairly easy, some users may need some assistance getting Echo and the onboard Alexa app up and running initially. This is as simple as pairing the device up to Internet service using a desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone. Once set up, Echo and the Alexa app can be used by anyone, any time. Advanced listening technology means Echo can pick up on voices from across the room with ease using the "wake word" -- "Alexa".
Note that while Echo is an Amazon.com device and works seamlessly with Amazon services and shopping, there is no monthly or recurring charge to use Echo. All you need is a WIFI Internet connection in your home for continued use. The Echo app, used on a tablet or smartphone, can enhance certain features of Echo, like bringing up those to-do lists, but using this is not required (past initial set up). This makes a great gift for pretty much anyone, including moms of all ages.
