Sunday 16 September But the Echo, backed by an artificial intelligence platform named Alexa, is much more than just another Bluetooth speaker. Originally, the device also included a remote control with a microphone, but recent Echo shipments have lacked the accessory.
Simply plug in the speaker, download and open the Amazon Alexa app, and follow its prompts. For instance, my Amazon Echo can access music and Kindle e-books I bought years ago — more on that later.
Once it hears the wake word, the Echo will interpret whatever follows as a command. The second key option for the Echo is enabling a wake sound. This confirmation tone is played after the speaker hears the wake word, helping you see that the Echo is listening. Together, the light ring and wake sound serve as a warning: The Echo is almost always listening. Once it hears that term, it records the chunk of audio immediately following. These recordings are streamed over the web to Amazon, where they are instantly analyzed and turned into commands on the Echo, similar to how voice assistants from Apple, Google, and Microsoft work.
Through the Amazon Alexa app, users can see and hear a history of their commands. They can even be deleted , though you may not want to do that.

So Echo users can link the device to their Google Calendar, enabling the device to keep track of their appointments. Similarly, the Echo fetches information on local businesses using Yelp. This feature is one of the many reasons to enter your address into the Amazon Alexa app — doing so means the Echo will tailor search results to your location. Timers and alarms are managed by the device and its app, for instance.
In other words, Echo users have to deal with yet another app for organizing or losing track of their thoughts. Other platforms like Android and iOS have this capability, but they try to anticipate your commute based on your routine.
