The same is true for the Dot's top-tapping feature; I wish you could customize it more than the Alexa app's paltry options that you can mess with the ultrasonic sensitivity, a fun little feature it uses to discern movement in a room. Selected lines only, determined by size, weight or whether delivered direct from one of our suppliers. It isn’t nearly as powerful as the screen of a smart display, but it’s much more useful than the numbers-only LEDs on the previous model.

The primary data collected by the Echo Dot with Clock are voice and smart home device interactions with Alexa. Designed to protect your privacy Built with multiple layers of privacy controls, including a mic off button. it’s a minor niggle not a deal breaker )The additional tech that grabbed my attention was the inclusion of a temperature and motion sensor. For example, the voice assistant may be poorly integrated into the device's software, or the microphones may be too poor for the voice assistant to pick up what you're saying reliably. Ask Alexa to set hands-free timers, answer questions, tell jokes or display weather forecasts and song titles.

It has all the other features of the new Echo Dot, too, including the temperature sensors and the ability to act as a Wi-Fi extender for Eero networks, plus a Zigbee radio. Your speeds on a connected device are limited to 100 Mbps, and you can't hardwire your Echo Dot into your network using Ethernet. The Dot's smaller size, in general, makes its LED ring at the bottom a little harder to see than the larger Echo if you're looking down at it from an angle, but this isn't a deal-breaker. An issue I have with both the 5th and 4th Gen Alexa Dot is the light bar is on the bottom of the unit.

I’ve reviewed more than a thousand different consumer electronics products including headphones, speakers, TVs, and every major game system and VR headset of the last decade.I certainly heard more nuance in Jimmy Cliff’s “I Can See Clearly Now,” with the collection of reggae instruments sounding distinct. Powered by Alexa, the Dot can do most everything its bigger siblings can, including stream music, set timers, run Alexa Routines, control smart home devices, play games, tell jokes, and work as a home intercom and telephone. They listen to nine recordings per turntable which cover a wide range of music and radio genres, giving a rating per recording and an overall verdict (not an average). The last thing is use it for is that I have the DOT on a wall mount which obscures the light ring somewhat, the display shows a Bell symbol just underneath the clock making you able to see if you have received a notification or similar. If I could choose which devices connected to the Dot — and, say, just put my smart lights on it — this would be more helpful to me.

Enjoy enhanced audio for vibrant sound anywhere in your home, stay on track with help from Alexa, and control compatible smart home devices. Hard to navigate, excruciatingly slow, not enough organization options, and just generally unpleasant to use as a smart home controller, the Alexa app is ripe for a makeover. All the Dot with Clock's other features, such as setting it up as a stereo pair, adjusting wake words, or using the built-in Guard functionality to alert you to potential problems, exist on other Echo speakers. To be totally transparent the review below is a copy and paste of the review I placed for the standard 5th Gen Echo Dot I purchased at a similar time.

The Reducing CO2 label applies to products certified by the Carbon Trust, that are lowering their carbon emissions year after year for the full life cycle of the product. Our most popular smart speaker features a sleek design and an improved LED display that shows the time, weather, song titles and more. Both these would be ideal to add to my smart Home system to enable routines for heating and lighting etc so was eager to test these out. Considering the Echo Dot series has been a favorite of ours for generations, it’s little surprise that the 2022 iteration of the Echo Dot With Clock earns our Editors’ Choice award.
