MY TOP ALEXA RECOMMENDATIONS.

Welcome to the Alexa in Canada Resources section, a curated list of the products and services I strongly recommend for getting the most out of your Alexa device.

Please understand that when it comes to a specific recommendation, I have experience with the product and/or service, and I recommend it because I have found it to be helpful and useful, not because of the small commission I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

TOP ECHO DEVICES.

AMAZON ECHO DOT

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!

AMAZON ECHO (2nd GENERATION)

The 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.
