The Technology Behind Amazon Echo

The beamforming technology makes it possible that the router transmits radio waves in your direction so that a reliable, stronger, faster and wireless communication could be established. This is remarkable technology because the smart speaker keeps on changing the direction of the communication as per your movement in the room. This is how Amazon Echo always picks your voice no matter where you are moving in the room. Interesting isn’t it?
One of the best capabilities Amazon Echo has about the noise cancellation. In a noisy room, as expected in a home, Echo easily hears you from any of the direction and from a distance. It will simply filter your voice from the irrelevant noise in the room. Ask it to do anything it can, and it can easily listen to you to do further needful. No question asked!!

Just ask for a song to Amazon Echo, your favourite artist, or a specific genre from your favourite music services like Amazon Prime Music, Amazon Echo has the capability and it delivers. Not just that; using multi-room music, you can even play music across multiple Echo devices at the same time a true Dolby environment with few Amazon Echo or Echo dot.
The Alexa App is compatible with Android and iOS devices and you can easily access it via your desktop browser. The Amazon Echo has powerful speakers that fill the room with immersive 360° omnidirectional audio, and deliver crisp vocals and dynamic bass response.
Controlling your smart devices in Home
Amazon echo can control your smart devices too. It can Control LED lights of your home and office. But it has a small catch here. This is possible with selected brands like Philips and Syska LEDs. Not all smart devices can be controlled with it. Also, some of the skills and services are subject to change or they may not be available in all areas and you may need to go for subscriptions or other charges.
