Amazon Echo Plus

 

Amazon Echo Plus review: Not quite the smart home unifier that we were hoping for, so don't throw away your smart home hubs yet.

Easy to set up ; Routines and in-app smart device control ; Expanding range of Skills ; Clean audio and simple voice control

Poor sound compared to similarly-priced competition ; Can't use Zigbee switches and sensors

A neat attempt at unifying the smart home, but the Echo Plus needs a few improvements before it works perfectly.

Amazon Echo Plus review: Alexa, is this all you've got?

 

The Echo Plus is a minor upgrade over the original Echo, with slightly better sound. But its much-touted smart hub feature is pretty limited, and it's not a significant improvement overall for existing Echo owners.

Sounds better than the first Echo ; Has access to thousands of Alexa skills ; Slightly cheaper than before

Smart hub feature is pretty basic ; $100 Echo is a better deal ; Not a huge upgrade for first-gen Echo owners

In many ways, the Echo Plus feels like the true successor to the device that kicked off the whole smart speaker trend. But aside from a slight bump in sound quality and semi-useful smart hub integration, there's not much separating the two. It's pretty...

Amazon Echo Plus review

 

Amazon's Echo Plus blasts down the barrier to smart-home entry with the smartest home hub yet

Built-in smart home hub eliminates the need for a bridge between Alexa and your smart home devices ; Seamless pairing with Zigbee compatible smart lights, switches, and plugs ; Three color choices (black, white, and silver) available ; Multi-room audio...

Sound quality of speaker isn’t as rich as we’d hoped it would be ; Doesn’t allow you to connect to other Amazon devices linked to different household accounts

The Echo Plus is an all-in-one device that bridges your smart home products to the home assistant Alexa. We wish the speaker boasted better sound quality, but the Echo Plus is designed for a more streamlined smart home system and not to blow your...

Amazon Echo Plus

 

The $150 Amazon Echo Plus is a very capable voice-assisted speaker that can't quite replace a dedicated hub if you're serious about smart home automation.

Integrated Zigbee automation hub. Audio has slightly more bass response than the standard Echo. Strong Wi-Fi reception.

Alexa app can't control smart home devices with as much granularity as dedicated apps.

Bottom Line: The $150 Amazon Echo Plus is a very capable voice-assisted speaker that can't quite replace a dedicated hub if you're serious about smart home automation.

Amazon Echo Plus: is this a better choice than the main Echo?

 

If you want more than one Echo in your home, make sure this is the main one

Slightly better sound than the Echo ; Zigbee compliant ; Volume wheel

Need to ensure Zigbee compatibility ; If sound is important, pay more

Amazon Echo Plus review

 

Not what you'd call a class-leader, but the Amazon Echo Plus sounds good and it's smarter than your average speaker

Clear midrange ; Smooth treble ; Smart-hub capabilities ; Good amount of detail

Lacklustre bass ; Doesn’t provide full smart-home functions

A good-sounding product with more smarts than you can shake a stick at

Amazon Echo Plus review: smart home 101

 

Smart home starter kit

Does all of the things the first Echo did for $30 less ; Can directly control smart home gadgets without a hub ; Makes it very easy to set up new smart home gadgets

Smart home support is still very limited ; Amazon’s other new Echo is even cheaper still ; Routines do not integrate other Amazon products well

Amazon is proud of the fact that it’s constantly iterating on and improving Alexa, and it’s likely that the Echo Plus’ smart home shortcomings with device compatibility and app limitations will be addressed with future updates. But right now, it’s a...

Amazon Echo Plus review

 

If Alexa taught us anything, it's the importance of good software. In Alexa's case, it's what made the original Amazon Echo ( $185.99 at Overstock.com ) smart speaker so compelling. On its own, the Echo itself was just your average Bluetooth speaker --...

The Echo Plus keeps the original Echo's design (and its beloved volume ring) while adding in an aux-out jack, a Zigbee radio to control smart home devices, and an incremental boost in sound quality. It costs $30 less than the original Echo.

The Plus also costs $50 more than the new Echo, which has everything the Plus has except for Zigbee. The Alexa app isn't the fully capable smart home control center that the Echo Plus needs it to be, at least not yet.

Hold off on the Echo Plus until Amazon improves the Alexa app's smart home controls.

Amazon Echo Plus review: The better Alexa experience

 

If you're looking to get Alexa into your home and want a standalone device, we'd recommend the Echo Plus over the second-gen Echo any day of the week.

Alexa is a leading light in smart devices ; Perfectly acceptable sound quality for daily listening ; Constantly expanding connections and functions ; Lower pricing is more attractive

Some software annoyances ; App needs some work ; Sound quality drops at higher volumes

With the second-gen Echo and the Echo Plus both being cheaper than the original Echo, Amazon is making the Echo universe more appealing to your wallet. The fact that you get more from the Plus than you did from the original Echo, for less money, is...

Amazon Echo Plus review

 

The true all-rounder of the Echo family does it all - but do you actually need it?

Improved sound over other Echo devices ; Still the king of smart home skills ; Alexa is increasingly capable

Sonos One sounds better ; Design looks dated next to 2nd-gen Echo ; High price compared to other Echos

It’s technically the best Echo ever, but not actually the best Echo to buy
