Firstly the voice recognition is very poor at times. I can stand right next to the device and it wouldn't react. Also the scope of features is a lot smaller than what I expected since alexa is on the market since several years. Unfortunately she's not capable of doing too much more than controlling music lights and whatever certain skills are informing her about. My understanding of a "smart" speaker was somewhat different. Especially since a saw the Google home mini of a friend the other day. Only giving three stars because the sound quality is good and to play radio and control lights the dot isn't too expensive.
