Top 10 Best Amazon Alexa Echo Dot gifts

Gift ideas for use with Amazon Alexa enabled Echo Dot

Keller with Santa at Shake Rag Alley Center for the ArtsLast Christmas, my daughter surprised me with an Amazon Echo Dot which I love using. Since then, I’ve purchased another Echo Dot which I use both Alexa enabled devices to stream music from Amazon Music, Pandora and I often connect my computer to my Echo Dots to play music from iTunes, YouTube and Google Play Music (thanks CG.) One of my favorite tricks with the Echo Dot devices is to create a group with more than one Echo Dot and have them all play the same music which fills my house with the same song. There’s currently over 50,000 Alexa Skills which are enabled via the Alexa app which connects to your Echo Dot.

I can’t forget to mention how amazing the “talk to me Alexa” feature is which taps into the Alexa Prize Socialbots (a collegiate AI Competition) allowing you to have a conversation, learn and be entertained by Amazon’s Alexa.
