Echo Dot (3rd Gen) – Smart speaker with Alexa
The Echo Dot 3rd Generation is Amazon’s latest smart speaker offering. It offers a few modest improvements over the previous generations of Echos. The new speaker comes with a sexier form and better sound quality, too.
One of the most striking differences in the new Amazon Echo Dot is its streamlined design. It is smaller and more compact than the previous generations. Amazon designed it to be a space-saver so you can place it almost anywhere in your home. The compact design of the new Dot also makes it a great companion in your travels.
This smart speaker features a 1.6-inch driver that provides exceptional audio. However, do not expect the new Dot to have a tweeter and a subwoofer like the Echo. It also does not provide Dolby audio. What may surprise you is that it can still deliver phenomenal speaker performance despite not having these technologies.
You will love the blue LED light ring of the smart speaker. The fabric cover is also adorable. It will complement your interior décor in a very nice way.
What is new in the Amazon Echo Dot Gen 3 is the Amazon FreeTime. This is a service that the company provides. It filters content specifically for children. It sets time limits, adds pre-approved contacts, and allows parents to review their kids’ activities.
Amazon never reneged on ensuring one’s privacy either. It already incorporates several layers of protection that will safeguard your privacy. This is for both the Echo device and the Alexa voice assistant platform. Speaking of Alexa, there are now tens of thousands of useful skills that will make your smart home even smarter.
It is easy to get excited with the new Amazon Echo Dot. It’s more compact, more elegant, and comes with a few improvements over its predecessors.
