Alexa is a digital assistant that can be voice controlled by asking simple questions.

This compact Bluetooth smart speaker with Alexa features a full sound that's great for bedrooms and small spaces. Small enough to blend in and mighty enough to stand out.

Ask Alexa to play music, audiobooks and podcasts from your favourite providers like Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and more. Connect your smartphone via Bluetooth to stream throughout your space.

Use your voice or the Alexa app to easily control your compatible smart home devices like plugs or lights.

Have Alexa set timers, check the weather, read the news, re-order paper towels, make calls, answer questions and more.

With tens of thousands of skills and counting, Alexa can help you do more or do less - like playing relaxing sounds and testing your music knowledge.

Turn your device into a Wi-Fi extender in minutes with compatible Echo and eero devices.

Alexa doesn’t begin listening until your device hears you say “Alexa” and the light bar turns blue.
