As Amazon have reduced the Amazon Echo from £90 to £75 in the pre-Easter sale I have bought one!
This was partly prompted by the fact that Amazon’s Alexa division has 1,200 vacancies - more than the entirety of Google - that level of investment says a lot.
So far I’m impressed! It seems far more natural than Siri. It feels better to not have to say “Hey” like you do with Siri.
I can play podcasts, check the weather, listen to BBC News headlines, ask it to play <insert genre and/or decade> music and it just works! I’ve even linked it to Todoist to capture new to-do items. (Siri is just a pain - it hardly ever understands people saying “Todoist” when making the request.)
Does anyone else have one? What are you doing with it?
