Not Just For Your Smart Home, Amazon’s Echo Dot Is A Great Travel Companion
While Amazon Echo is the perfect example of a smart home device, it can also double as the ideal travel companion. The Echo Dot is extremely small and lightweight and would hardly make any difference to your luggage. A drawback with the latest model is that it requires its own custom cable and power plug, so you will have to make sure you take it along. If space is not an issue, you can take the larger Alexa models or even the Sonos One.
It is easy to connect Alexa to a new Wi-Fi network and it takes less than a minute to do it! Since you would be traveling, it is a great idea to change the location. That way, you will get updated weather and traffic details along with information about local businesses.
While Alexa can handle basic translations and can speak a bunch of European languages, it lags behind Google in this sector. Surprising, Apple and Google both have support for about 20 languages each. Google can work with multiple languages simultaneously, making it suitable for bilingual households. While you are enjoying your vacation in an exotic island, you can still control your home.
It may sound strange, but for the solo traveller, there’s something comforting about interacting with Alexa when 6,000 miles from home.
