Amazon Echo Spot and Echo Buttons have been released

The Amazon Echo Spot and Echo Buttons have arrived to customers who placed pre-orders. There seems to be a decent amount of interest in these because ordering either of them today will not see them arrive until next year, since both are back-ordered. Initial reviews across the web seem to be positive for the Echo Spot, with some articles calling it the best Alexa device. I’ve purchased both the Spot and the Buttons to see what they’ve got to offer. I don’t know if I’ll be writing up a standard review for them, but I’ll, of course, be digging in to see if there’s anything exceptionally interesting beneath the surface to tell you all about. Please let me know in the comments below if there’s anything specific that you want to know about either the Echo Spot or the Echo Buttons.

    Can the echo spot camera be turned off? I would hate to put a piece of tape over it. What features does the spot have that make it a must buy?

    Can the buttons be used for more than games? Can the buttons be programed or used for other skills or shopping?

  2. Kenny says:

    How good/bad is the spot speaker for music? How does it compare to the dot and the full echo speaker?

  3. Firestarter fan says:

    Can the buttons be ‘hacked’ to control smart devices eg lights?

  4. Ray says:

    I would love to hear how it interacts with other smart home devices. specifically the Ring 2 or Ring Pro video doorbells.
