Introduction
First there were televisions, then home
computers, then video games consoles, then
laptops, then smartphones, then tablets, and now?
We have smart speakers as the latest and coolest
piece of tech needed for the home. Well, we say
needed, but you may well wonder why exactly you
need one for your house. After all, youve got
all the gadgets we just listed, so why another
one? Thats what were here to find out.

Streaming Music
1
With the option to stream the latest and hottest
tracks plus all your favorite hits from the past,
the Echo can pull music from Amazon Prime,
Spotify Premium, Pandora, or even songs on your
laptop, tablet, or phone via Bluetooth. If you
prefer the radio, then thats a possibility too
with the TuneIn service.

Audiobooks
2
If youve got an Audible account, the Echo will
be able to play your chosen audiobooks, but
whats even cooler is that Alexa can also read
books currently stored on your Kindle. Sometimes,
it helps to have everything from the same company!

Quick Questions
3
Need to know the capital of Australia? Wish to
know the current age of George Clooney? Ask Alexa
and shell inform you asap. However, sometimes we
like to be the ones answering the questions. If
you enable the Jeopardy mode, Alexa will quiz
you on a host of different topics perfect for
trivia nights!

Timers for Cooking
4
The Echo can keep track of several different
timers at once, so for instance, if youre
cooking chicken in one pan, eggs in another, and
pasta in yet one more pot, then requesting Alexa
to keep track of all the timers is incredibly
useful because its all hands-free.
7
Lights
5
Although youll need to have Belkin WeMo smart
switches and Philips Hue connected lights, once
linked, you can tell Alexa to turn off and on
lights. We love this idea, as sometimes getting
up after a hard day to hit the light switch is
just sometimes too hard!

Movie Time
6
If you want to know the showtimes for particular
movies in your area, then the Echo can reel off
that info easily enough. But whats even cooler
is that Alexa can help you find out the name of a
movie you forgot the name of, provided that you
give her a few clues.
9
Chill Out
7
With the Therapy Skill, Alexa can help you
relax after a long, hard day with some
inspirational quotes and the means to do a bit of
meditation. If youre not in the mood to chill,
Alexa can actually provide a seven-minute workout
as well!

To-do Lists
8
For anyone who writes down a to-do list on a
piece of paper but then immediately loses it, the
Echo has a good solution. You can create a to-do
list and add to it all the time, simply by asking
Alexa Whats on my to-do list?
11
Mathematics
9
If youre writing something by hand and need to
do a quick spellcheck or equation, then Alexa can
assist you with that. The Echo can also provide
synonyms if youre tired of constantly using the
same words.
12
Own a Digital Pet
10
Okay, this one is slightly odd but a little bit
funny. You can have a digital dog named Dazzle.
Were not exactly sure why youd want this, but
if youve never owned a dog before, then this
could be your chance.
