Discontinued – this product has been replaced by the Echo Dot (5th Gen)
The Echo Dot (4th gen) has a new spherical design. Like its predecessor, it has the Alexa built-in to make your life at home easier. Using your voice, you can find answers to questions, listen to the news and weather, and set alarms and reminders. The smart speaker features a 1.6″ front-firing speaker, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support and a 3.5 mm audio line out for connection to an external speaker.
Alexa Privacy Protection
If you’re concerned about your privacy, you’ll be glad to know there are multiple layers of privacy protection built into each Echo device. First, a wake word is used to activate Alexa. So, unless Alexa detects that word, it won’t be recording your conversations. Second, all Echo devices have a Microphone Off or Mic/Camera Off button that disconnects the microphone and camera electronically. For added peace of mind all Echo Show devices have a sliding camera cover. Finally, you can delete any voice recordings by asking Alexa or using the Alexa app. You can read more about Alexa’s privacy features by clicking on this link.

Do I need a smartphone to set up the Echo Dot?
You can set it up using a smartphone or a computer with the Alexa app.
How is the Echo Dot powered?
It comes with a power adaptor that plugs into a mains socket. An optional battery base is available that provides up to 5 hours power.
Does Alexa record my conversations?
Alexa only records audio when you wake it up using the wake word. Audio is recorded to improve the accuracy of the service offered by Alexa. You can ask Alexa to delete your voice history or you can view/delete all audio recordings using the app.
