I had really high hopes for this but it rarely responds to my voice and sound quality is poor to fair. Not sure why Amazon would release this when it's an inferior product. Our Echo Dots work great, I was after something for a bigger room but there's really no need, and I certainly wouldn't recommend this. It's basically a very pretty round ball with blue lights, it's that's what you're after then this is for you!!! If you want a good speaker, buy something else. If you want a good unit to run Alexa, stick with the Dot. Honestly, don't buy this. It is just plain useless and won't pick up your voice.
