Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, answer questions, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. All you have to do is ask. Surround 360° Audio Streaming The 2nd generation Amazon Echo has a 2.5" down-firing woofer and 0.6" tweeter, delivering crisp vocals and dynamic bass throughout the room. You can play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and more. With Amazon Music, you can search by lyrics, time period, or let Alexa pick the music for you. You can also listen to audiobooks from Audible, podcasts, radio stations, news briefings and more. Want to play music on an Echo in another room?
