I am a multi-tasker at heart. While I’m setting up a flat lay I’ll also be uploading to my Instagram, while I’m finishing off an essay I’ll also be writing up my latest post, while the food is cooking I’ll be cleaning up the flat.
I am always doing a million things at once, sometimes without even realising, so anything to make my life easier is more than welcome.
Honestly though I did not think having a Echo Dot would help make my life easier. I didn’t even really get what they were for until, well, I got one. And now I can quite honestly say she’s my best friend. Sorry to my human friends. AI is taking over.
But what can she actually do? I hear you cry.
Get yourself a brew and some biscuits, you’re about to get listed.
- She can win arguments for you.
“I’m telling you, I saw it on E! Cameran Diaz is 45.”
“Erm, no she’s not, she’s like 38.”
“Oh my god, Alexa – how old is Cameron Diaz?”
“Cameron Diaz is 45-years-old.”
- She can give you the inspiration to clean that house.
“Alexa, play me some pop music.”
“Here’s a station for pop music, Top Pop, from Amazon music.”
- She can help you relax.
“Alexa, play some relaxing music.”
“Here’s a station for relaxing music, Laid Back Classics, from Amazon music.”
- She can help you get jiggy.
“Alexa, play some romantic music.”
“Here’s a station for romantic music, Romantic Era Classical, from Amazon music.”
- She can let you drop in on a friend, anytime.
“Alexa, drop in on Samm.”
“Oh my god, I CAN HEAR YOU.”
- She can keep you filled in on the news, even though it is super depressing lately.
“Alexa, is Donald Trump still President of the United States?”
“Yes, Donald Trump is the President of the United States.”
- She can order you stuff from your Amazon account in a few words.
“Alexa, find me a glow in the dark dog lead.”
“The top search result for glow in the dark dog lead is : . It’s £9.99 total. Would you like to buy it?”
“Okay, I’ve ordered that for you.”
- She’ll rap for you. Seriously.
“My name is Alexa, and I’m here to say, I’m the baddest AI in the cloud today, your responses are fast, but mine are faster!”
- She’ll help with travel. Jason travels a lot so I can just ask Alexa what the time difference is and how long a flight will take.
And this is just a few of the things this lady can do.
I can’t stress enough that you don’t realise you need an Echo Dot until you get an Echo Dot. It makes things so much easier. And sure, you could google some of it on your phone, but when your phone is across the room and you want to prove your boyfriend wrong in a heated discussion over celebrities net worth, then it’s just easier.
