    Something I’m not clear on, but do you need to already have Amazon Echo for these to work, or do they work independently of Echo? (I’m a geek but not a technical one.)

    • Jennifer

      It works independently, but to get the most out of it you would need to at least have Bluetooth speakers or headphones to use with it.

      • Karen

        It has a built in speaker. You don’t need to use external speakers unless you want to.

        • Jennifer

          The built in speaker is only for communication purposes, not intended for use to play music, news, etc.

          • Stephanie

            My daughter uses it to solely play music off of Pandora and my Amazon playlist. If you don’t have the original echo, then I don’t think there is anything for it to communicate with and I don’t think any of the cool Alexa functions would work??

    • Darryn Frost

      You do not need echo, and the dot has speakers, just not great ones for music. It has all the same functionality as Echo.

    Christmas gifts for fam and myself!!!! Yay! Got the buy 5 get 1 free.
    These will work great for us because I have a Bose portable speaker, surround sound in living room and a Jam Bluetooth speaker. So we can have one of these in living room, both daughters rooms, master bdrm and garage for the hubs. 😁
    Just gotta buy one more Bluetooth portable speaker and good to go.

      That’s awesome!

    What is major difference between this and original echo? Any advantage to e8ther?

    • Jennifer

      The larger Echo has the speaker built in. The speaker in the Dot is only intended for communication purposes (telling it what you want it to do), so you pretty much need to use the Dot with Bluetooth headphones or speakers.

        Thanks

    I’m still a bit thrown off by this but thought I would share my amazing deal….I went and placed a pre-order and when I reached checkout I was given a courtesy credit which ended up making this $28.36!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      WOW! That’s amazing! Great score Jessica!

  5. Colleen

    I have the full size Echo which I love and I bought a Dot today for another room. 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh awesome!

    People who bought an Amazon Echo already should have gotten an extra email about ordering through Alexa and getting a $10 credit for their next alexa purchase. Please check your emails.
