I don't find it as slick as Alexa, but got it free with a discounted Telegraph sub.

I'm a bit meh! Not sure if it's worth keeping plugged in, kind of handy telling it to turn up the heating and it streams radio well. It's voice recognition is very good, but I'm selling my data for that.

We have an Echo, which is very good, but for some reason loses radio all the time, but never Spotify, or Amazon Music, which is a bit odd. Some friendds of ours have an Echo and Echo Dot, and they have the same issue with the Echo, but not the Dot, go figure.

The voice recognition on Echo amazed me to be honest, waaaaay above anything I have previously used (Cortana, Siri, Google).

Nice link cheers. The voice recognition is very, very good, much better than Siri but then Siri is much better at privacy
