|The Amazon Echo is a Bluetooth smart speaker that features an advanced voice controlled assistant and was first released on November 6, 2014. The Amazon Echo uses cloud-based computing to retrieve information, store lists, and manage various music services through voice commands. The 9.25-inch tall black cylinder contains a seven microphone array to be able to listen to users over background noises and across the room from any direction. It also has a woofer and tweeter to provide rich and immersive sound.|
|The Echo connects via bluetooth and Wi-Fi, but is not completely wireless as it needs to be plugged in to a power source. The voice assistant, activated by saying the phrases “Alexa,” “Amazon,” or “Echo,” can learn new commands by adding “skills” with the accompanying app.|
|The Amazon Echo will be joined by the other Alexa featured devices announced on March 3, 2016: the smaller Amazon Echo Dot and the portable Amazon Tap.|
