We can understand how affording a Google home can be way out of your budget. But if you wish to be the smart host in the coming year, go out and get yourself the Amazon Echo. This smart artificial voice assistant will help you slide through your day making life easier.
The smart home assistant named Alexa is cylindrical in shape and the black exterior is 9.25x 3.27 inches. Download the Echo app to your phone and it will help you plan things, play your music and set reminders. Give the wake up call ‘Alexa’ and talk to it just like you would talk to Siri or Cortana, but what’s better is that you don’t need to have the phone in your hand. This device comes with a remote just like the one which comes with Amazon Fire TV stick. So if you are in a different room, just speak into the remote and viola! It picks up your message. Don’t you hate it when your spouse tells you to bring something and you still end up forgetting it? So all you need to do is call Alexa and ask her to set a reminder.
