Voice control your music
The 2nd generation Echo has a 2.5" down-firing woofer and 0.6" tweeter to deliver crisp vocals and dynamic bass throughout the room. You can play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn and more.

With Amazon Music, you can search by lyrics, time-period, or let Alexa pick the music for you. You can also listen to audiobooks from Audible, podcasts, radio stations, news briefs and more.

Play in every room
Want to play music on an Echo in another room? Now with multiroom music, you can tell Alexa to play across your compatible Echo devices.

Tell Alexa to play jazz in the kitchen, top pop in the family room, or play the same song throughout your whole home.

Voice control your home
Use Echo to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn on the coffee maker on your way to the kitchen, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie — all without lifting a finger.

Ask Alexa to turn on the TV, turn up the volume, change the channel, or play your favorite movie. Echo can control your Fire TV and select devices from Sony, Dish, and Logitech.

Control multiple devices at scheduled times or with a single voice command, like locking the doors and turning off the lights when you go to bed.

Echo works with lights, locks, switches, thermostats and more from WeMo, Philips Hue, SmartThings, Insteon, Nest, ecobee, and Wink.

Hands-free calling and messaging
With Echo, you can instantly talk to anyone hands-free — no tapping or searching required. Your contacts will see your number when they receive the call so they know who is calling.

Additionally, you can send messages via voice or text to anyone with a supported Echo device or the Alexa app.

Let your household know when dinner is ready, ask someone for help with a chore, or remind the kids to go to sleep — without having to raise your voice.

With the Drop In feature enabled for room-to-room calling, instantly connect with compatible Echo devices in your home.

Far-field voice recognition
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beamforming technology and enhanced noise cancellation.

The 2nd generation Echo has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any direction — even in noisy environments or while playing music at loud volumes.

When you want to use Echo, simply say the wake word, "Alexa," and Echo lights up and connects to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service recognizes and responds to your request instantly.

Echo has skills
Echo has tens of thousands of skills and counting.

Skills add even more capabilities, such as ordering a pizza from Domino's, requesting a ride from Uber, tracking your fitness with Fitbit, controlling your TV with Dish and more. To enable new skills, just ask Alexa.

New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about the thousands of skills available in the Alexa app.

Always getting smarter
Alexa is always getting smarter - the more you use Echo, the more Alexa adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.

Just in the last few months we’ve added Alexa calling and messaging, multiroom music, and reminders, along with skills from third-party developers.

Suit your style
Customize your Echo for any room with Echo Shell, available in a range of fabrics and finishes.
