Before purchasing the echo plus I’ll admit I wasn’t expecting it to do all the things it’s said to do. However I was shocked to discover Alexa (the echo plus) does everything it’s described to and so much more! This device has really made life so much easier and it’s also compatible with philips hue lights as described. The echo plus is regularly updated and brings even more amazing features such as games, shopping lists, alarms, controlling lights and air conditioners all with voice activation. The echo plus opens so many doors in technological advancements!
