It’s a very Echo Christmas [S14E02]

This week the team talk about Amazon’s smash-hit home assistant ‘things’ - the Echo and the Dot - and the on-board personality Alexa. We think they’ll sell by the ton this holiday season and wonder why we enjoy them so much compared to Siri. We discuss how we use them, the extra ’skills’ you can add and setting up simple home automation.

WARNING - we say ‘Alexa’ a lot this episode so mute your Echo!

Pro-tip: Hide the shame of using an Apple battery case by resting it on an empty iPhone case.
