Technology has really come a long way since we were kids. At the time, we were thrilled that you could buy a portable CD player with you when you left home. Now you can go to Amazon and grab the echo dot so you can turn your home into a smart home that can be controlled with your voice.
The echo dot has become one of the most popular items in Amazon’s branded smart product line. Each new update to this line has seen it become even more useful and accessible. And with this new update, you can make this little high-tech gadget work like an old-fashioned desk clock.
While this new echo dot has the ability to display the time so you don’t have to look at a phone or anything to see what time it is, it also has all the features you would expect from this product. Voice-activated functions that let you control your smart home, like turning the lights on or off or playing music, or even turning on the coffee machine. This will greatly simplify your morning routine.
Some items that claim to be as useful as this don’t always work as well as you’d like. But you can tell it works as well as it promises, because the customer review rating on Amazon is 4.8 out of 5 stars from over 177,800 reviews. It’s a lot of love, so you can rest easy knowing it’s worth buying.
Technology rules everything around us these days and if you don’t already have a smart home or are looking to upgrade yours, the new echo dot is for you. All you have to do is head over to Amazon right now and grab it while it’s still good to get. You won’t regret it if you start your day with ease.
