Echo gives you information on the climate and temperature of your city and of every place in the world, helps you to draw up shopping lists, advises you on what to prepare in the kitchen, informs you about current news, helps you choose the fastest way . And then it is able to control other smart devices (such as lights, televisions, hi-fi), it puts you the music you prefer and reads the information from the web for you.



Just call Echo and say your request to see the device take action and meet your needs. In practice you will speak face to face with the device, which within the limits of its capabilities (however very high) will do everything possible to answer the question.

Amazon Echo Input

It could not be missing from the list Echo Input which in terms of functionality, has nothing to envy to the other models belonging to the Echo line.
