Amazon Echo 4th Gen Smart Speaker
Start or expand your Amazon Alexa ecosystem with the Amazon Echo 4th Gen
Equipped with dual-band Wi-Fi and a microphone array, the 4th Gen Echo connects to your home’s wireless network and allows you to intuitively play music, check the weather and traffic reports, hear sports scores, and more with Amazon Alexa. Bluetooth is also onboard, enabling the Echo to wirelessly pair and play audio from a variety of audio sources, such as smartphones and tablets.
The Amazon Echo 4th Gen stands 5.2″ tall with a 5.7″ diameter and incorporates a 3″ woofer and two 0.8″ tweeters to produce full-range sound. The 1/8″ audio jack can be used as either an input or an output.
Versatile Music Streaming
Use your voice to play a song, artist, or genre through Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more. With compatible Echo devices in different rooms, you can fill your home with music. You can also listen to Audible, podcasts, radio stations, or pair with compatible Fire TV devices to voice control movies and entertainment.
Smart Home Control
Connect and manage your Zigbee-enabled smart home devices with the built-in hub. Just power on your device and say, “Alexa, discover my devices”. Alexa will automatically detect and set them up so you can control lights, plugs, and more with your voice. Mpreover, you can enable Alexa Guard to get Smart Alerts if your Echo device detects the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, or glass breaking. Following a future firmware update, the hub will also work with Ring Smart Lighting.
Alexa Guard Helps Keep Your Home Safe
Set up Guard in the Alexa app to get mobile alerts if the Echo detects the sound of a smoke alarm or glass breaking while you’re away. An optional Guard Plus subscription unlocks additional features, including an emergency helpline you can call with just your voice.
With tens of thousands of skills and counting, Alexa’s capabilities are always expanding. Skills are like apps and help you do more, like play relaxing sounds or test your music knowledge. It also lets you check the traffic, weather, and more.
Keep Your Family in Sync
Use multiple Alexa devices like an intercom system and talk to any room in the house with an Alexa device using Drop In and Announcements. Let everyone know that dinner is ready, or remind the kids that it’s bedtime. You can also make hands-free calls to almost any phone number in the US, Canada, Mexico, and the UK to stay in touch with friends and family.
Alexa for Kids
Make the Echo kid-friendly by enabling Amazon FreeTime in the Alexa app. It can automatically filter explicit songs, call approved contacts, set time limits, or review activity with parental controls in the Amazon Parent Dashboard. An optional Amazon Kids+ (formerly FreeTime Unlimited) subscription unlocks additional features, including thousands of hours of Audible books, interactive games, and educational skills.
Designed to Protect Your Privacy
The Echo has a microphone off button that electronically disconnects the microphones. You also have control over your voice recordings, allowing you to view, hear, or delete them at any time. Additional privacy features include wake word technology and streaming indicators.
Engineered for Easy Setup and Use
After plugging in the Echo, connect to the internet with the Alexa app on your mobile device, then ask Alexa for music, weather, news, for instance.
The Echo is made from 50% post-consumer recycled plastics and 100% post-consumer recycled fabric. The cable and adapter are all made from 100% recycled die-cast aluminum.
