It’s been 8 months that I have been sharing my office with Alexa and her two smart speakers, the Echo and the Dot. For the most part I have been very satisfied with the products. You can see one of my early reviews here
I sometimes have to repeat requests but for the most part I am very satisfied and use the devices for
- Listening to my Amazon music collection
- Finding the correct spelling of words
- News briefings
- Manage our Capital One Account including making payments
The last two I use several times a day and the Alexa app lacked the functionality of telling me what timer was going off and to name my reminders. That changed in the current update and now I can say ” Alexa, remind me in two days at 9:00 am to pay the electric bill.”.
