Amazon Echo Plus Product Review

What I'm interested to tell you about is based on my experience after buying the new Amazon Echo Plus. A few key elements including sound/audio, ease of use, value, design/style, installation, and size are the most important to me.
Easy set-up through Amazon Play song trivia or Jeopardy against your friends in the home or with others nationwide. Get daily news, sports, general information, can't spell just ask Alexa. according to Best Buy. As we experienced the sound and audio to be a great system sleek and good sound; would recommend it.
Ease of use makes it great and easy to use. The device is very responsive even with multiple voices giving it commands. Setup was straightforward, including Bluetooth. The ability to make a voice call by the command is a great feature, as is the overall integration of the phone functions into the device. The not-so-good: The device gave a lot of "I'm not sure" answers to some pretty basic questions. This is probably due to Bing being used as the search engine for the device instead of Google.
Easy to use because the price provided, I thought that the deal was a good value. I have the first generation unit as well. A quick comparison of the two from a sound, look, etc perspective really didn't lead me to think that there was any noticeable sound improvement nor improved aesthetics. At least the price for the unit has come down quite a bit and the addition of Philips bulb for 'free' was a smart move. 

Love it, worth the price $149, plays good quality music from amazon music and iTunes via Bluetooth, podcasts, radio, speaks audiobooks and Kindle books (remembers where you’re up to), tells you news, weather, traffic updates, general knowledge trivia such as g to lb conversions, footy fixtures, footy scores", according to very.co.uk. In addition, the device is very responsive even with multiple voices giving it commands. Setup was straightforward, including Bluetooth. The ability to make a voice call by the command is a great feature, as is the overall integration of the phone functions into the device.

Like the style and the slick design with built-in the hub so you don’t need all these other hubs to control lights. Works seamlessly with the 6 echo dots around my condo. Can play music from your iTunes or Amazon music through the condo.
The bass is much better on the new Alexa. The echo plus definitely has better sound output over the first generation and with Amazon adding the “hub” function, this speaker/device has been nothing but amazing. I’ve ditched the Phillips smart hub and simply use my echo plus as a smart hub to control all of my smart devices.

Installation was easy, though it was somewhat difficult to set up the Echo Plus with my Hue system which was already linked to a bridge/hub it has been working well and works well with my Nest thermostat. I am impressed with the speakers for playing music and with the microphones for voice recognition. I am very pleased with the purchase.
The Plus's speakers are incredible for its size. I read about the echo. I have a dot and echo plus. I like the dot because of its size. The speaker is better on the plus. It is loud enough for a room. I wish you get to make a bit louder. I have enjoyed all the features of the product. You can't go wrong with an echo product.
