Difference Between Echo and Echo Dot
The main difference between the echo and Echo Dot is the speaker…
The Echo Dot is essentially a decapitated Amazon Echo, without the large speaker underneath it.
Instead, the Echo Dot has a worse off speaker that sounds very tinny.
Despite this it’s still just as functional, and offers even better audio playback options than the original Echo as it was designed in mind to be used with an external speaker.
‘Which one would I buy?’
Probably the Echo as it looks nicer and makes a perfect wireless speaker whereas you can not really use the dot without an external speaker connected to it.
Do I Need An Amazon Echo To Use An Echo Dot And Vice Versa?
In short, the answer is no.
Whether you chose to buy the tall Echo or the small Echo Dot you do not need both for them to work.
If you buy the Echo you can purchase several echo dots to place around your house if you have several rooms and if Alexa is finding it difficult to hear you. Or…
You could just purchase one for the room you spend most your time in. If you are going for the one off option I do recommend just going for the standard Amazon Echo.
Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new features and skills. Just ask Alexa to control compatible smart devices, request an Uber, order a pizza, and more.
