Alexa – Your Perfect virtual assistant

Alexa is basically a cloud based voice service available on millions of Amazon devices and third-party devices. With Alexa, you can build natural voice experiences that offer customers a more interesting way to interact with the technology they use every day.

Amazon Alexa is basically a virtual assistant developed by Amazon. It was first used in the Amazon Echo and the Amazon Echo Dot smart speakers. It is capable of voice interaction, playing music, routine tasks, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks. Alexa is also capable of providing weather, traffic, sports, and other real-time information, such as news.

Amazon Alexa for Business

Today, people spend too much of their time on small tasks at work, like managing their calendars, managing their  meetings, or searching for information. But Echo dot with Amazon Alexa can help solve this problem by acting as an intelligent virtual assistant at work.

Alexa can help you manage your schedule, keep track of your tasks list, and set reminders. It can automatically dial into your conference calls and make phone calls for you. It can help you quickly find information; like the latest sales data, or the inventory levels in your warehouse. It lets you start meetings and control your conference room settings by just using your voice. With Alexa, you don’t need to use remotes, find conference call information, and manually dial in to meetings – you can just say “Alexa, start my meeting” and it starts.

Amazon Echo Dot (2nd generation)

Amazon has released a new version of Echo Dot which is smaller in size but does all the work that a full size Amazon echo would do. It has more skills and third-party integrations that its competitors. Now priced at $50, this small Amazon voice-controlled speaker has become an even bigger hit than the original Amazon Echo. Even with all of the new competition, the Echo Dot is still one of the best values in tech. It is still a worthy purchase of getting a virtual assistant that can be used anywhere with ease.

The second generation of Amazon echo dot replaced the 1st gen after six months. The major changes that can be seen is that there is no longer a ring on top that was used to control the volume. Now there are buttons to change your volume. It’s a bit lighter and has a shiny plastic that gives it more attractive look. And it’s available in white as well. Dot is basically access point to Alexa platform. With its small size, the speakers are also not that high but the good thing is that you can connect it to any other speaker you want. This generation of Echo Dot listens much better than the last one. Overall, it is definitely better than the 1st gen Amazon echo dot.


To conclude, I must say that the Amazon Echo Dot is a must have in such busy world. It saves you a lot of time and you can perform tasks much easier than before. While driving, it can help you with directions and road safety as well. While cooking, it can help you set timers for different recipes and while in the room you can use it as a music player or as an alarm in the morning. You can also use it for online shopping as well. Basically you can do everything with this device. If you ask for my opinion, I definitely think it is worth buying.
