MY TOP RECOMMENDATIONS.

In the spirit of full transparency, know that I do receive payment for mentioning these products. However, I only promote those products or services that I have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you.
These are my top 2 recommended Amazon Alexa devices that are currently on the market. Click on the pics to discover more about them.

1. AMAZON ECHO DOT (2nd GENERATION).

Amazon Echo Dot 2nd Generation

The Amazon Echo Dot is the smallest Echo device that houses Alexa. It’s only 1.3″ x 3.3″ x 3.3″ (32 mm x 84 mm x 84 mm), about the size of a hockey puck! It’s the perfect starter device to introduce Alexa to your family!

2. AMAZON ECHO (2nd GENERATION).

Amazon Echo 2nd GenerationThe Amazon Echo is the “standard” Alexa device. This one has better speakers than the Echo Dot (i.e. Dolby sound), providing better sound quality when Alexa is “serenading” you! Other than that, functions are the same. It’s also a little bigger than the Dot, at 5.9” x 3.5” x 3.5” (148 mm x 88 mm x 88 mm), or about 6 hockey pucks stacked on one another.
