I asked DS (15) earlier as I saw on here they’re down to £34 and I still have they to spend on him from my parents budget after Xbox stuff has been bought! He said it’s just Amazon’s version of Siri so if you have an iPhone it’s not worth buying. He also said to do all the light changing things etc as per the advert you need to buy smart lights (or something like that). Also said it can be used as speakers but you might want an echo (?) for that! Hope that helps!
I have to disagree with Jock. It does an awful lot more than just play music. It has all the features of the Echo but the speakers aren't as good. Having said that if it's for a teenagers bedroom the dot is perfect. The sound is ideal for that or background music etc. I've got one in my kitchen and can hear the music from it if I'm on my decking.
I've ordered 2 today for Christmas presents as they're down to £35.
