About the Amazon Echo®
It’s hard to be on the internet nowadays and not have heard of the Echo. Amazon’s smart speaker and hub has sold over five million units, making it the easy leader in the smart speaker market.
Amazon’s Echo smart speaker was a game changer when it launched in 2015. Since then it’s continued to lead the Internet of Things (IoT) hub market in spite of increased competition from Google. The entire family of Echo products can be found in homes, offices, businesses, and anywhere else internet connectivity allows Alexa, its onboard digital assistant, to reach the web. The Echo may seem like it’s designed for the smart home, but there’s no reason it can’t be used in a smart office as well.
If you’ve been seeking a hub for an IoT-connected office, it’s well worth your time. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly. All you have to do is ask. Amazon Echo also provides hands-free voice control to Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn.
