    This would be good to give as a gift, if you already have one. However, we have one and really only use it for weather reports. We have’t found much practical application for it. I’d like to hear what other have used theirs for. Maybe we are missing out on some great stuff.

    • We use ours for a grocery shopping list. Works pretty well for that.
      We can tell it to add something to the shopping list anytime and then when I’m at the store I just bring up the list in the alexa app on my phone.

    Streaming music if you have Sirius, Spotify, Amazon, etc, great for distracting toddlers.

    Asking simple google questions (when is the next NY Jets game).

    That’s about it from a practical standpoint although techies can make it do anything (like make a list) at triple the effort of pen and paper…

  3. I like the ability to set timers, set reminders, and adding calendar events without having to take my phone out of my pocket. I don’t have an Apple watch or other gadget that lets me do that.

    The idea of being able to call up whatever song I want to listen to at the moment is neat (would be “magic” a few decades ago), but I don’t know if it’s worth $96 a year to me. I have enough podcasts queued up for the limited time that I have free to listen.

      There’s a fair amount of music free if you have a Prime membership (even if you cancel the Amazon Music Unlimited). We have a Dot next to our rowing machine, and it’s really nice to have her play my ‘workout’ playlist.

    Did not work for me, not eligible, probably since I’ve done it in the past. But thanks, gave it a try. My 2yo goes crazy with the volume buttons, we had to remove from his room recently, otherwise he’d never fall asleep.

  5. Speaking of being worth it, I don’t understand why you would want to buy a microphone that listens to everything you say and do, and willingly put it in your home. Ever read the book 1984? It’s all gradually coming true…

    Before you say no one is listening, look up the examples where all the big tech players have been caught doing it. The NSA was also caught doing it with Samsung Smart TVs.

    • I definitely respect that opinion and have my concerns as well. I mainly use the “Hey Siri” feature of my iPhone, but that means my iPhone is also always listening to me, at least for the activation word like an Echo. You can disable that, or you might trust Apple more than Amazon or Google. (I have a Samsung TV and would not buy it again. Way too many “features” that I can’t turn off and that automatically update. Including ads!)
