What’s better than Alexa? Two Alexas. Amazon has a great deal today that saves you $40 when you buy two Amazon Echo Spots.
The Echo Spot is the half-grapefruit-sized version of the original Echo that exchanged surface area for some pretty sweet visual features. As we’ve come to know, you can ask Alexa to do pretty much anything. With the Echo Spot, she’ll do everything that the Echo does (play music, order you pizza, turn off your lights, lock your doors), but she’ll also show you pretty much anything. You name it: video flash briefings of the latest news, song lyrics, weather forecasts, to-do lists, and more. On top of that, you can also connect the Echo Spot to your baby monitor and/or security camera, giving you eyes and ears all over your home.
The Echo Spot also comes with a FaceTime-esque feature that allows you to connect with other Echo Spots, near and far. So whether you’re video-chatting with your friend in another state or in the next room (hey—don’t act like you haven’t texted someone in your house instead of just going to the room that they’re in), the Echo Spot’s got your back.
You may be thinking, “why would I need two Echo Spots?”
Well, if just reading the above features didn’t spark any ideas as to how you could use two, here’s a nice little list of scenarios where this deal could really benefit you:
Your child or friend is going to college in the fall. Buy two Echo Spots as a going away gift — one for them and one for you. That way, not only can you guys stay in touch by video-chatting, think of what a perfect gift the Echo Spot would be for a college student: it can show them assignment to-do lists, play study music, keep them up-to-date with real-world news outside of their college campus, etc.
It’s Friday night and you’re having a small gathering at your house. You’re playing music on your Echo Spot, but also want to quickly order a pizza. Since cutting the tunes to ask Alexa to order your Dominoes would probably kill the vibe, use the other Echo Spot in your kitchen instead and keep your guests happy and fed with no intermissions.
Your baby is sleeping — AKA you have about a nap’s length of time to do all of the house chores you can before the little angel wakes up. Instead of carrying the Echo Spot all over the house (you need both of your hands and probably one or two more), just keep one in each room so you can monitor your baby while staying productive.
While these are some starting points, the possibilities are endless. The bottom line is, two Echo Spots can always come in handy— and this deal is making it that much better of any idea.
