Created a new thread to support good deals sharing.

Cos nowadays too many platforms (qoo10, lazada, TB, amazon). Don't want a fragmented sharing session.

Of course got any specific question, please go back to individual TB/qoo10 threads etc.

 

Everyone share share haha   [laugh]

For most simple personal management task have, works like a charm. And don't need to raise voice as it is sensitive to pick up and differentiate from normal conversation. But here dot have feature to support booking of uber yet. I use it to play songs and tune to radio. Also check traffic and weather prediction. I mostly use it to ask maths question when teaching kids. If have Philips hue can control lighting with voice.
The whole idea is it can do what one can do with a computer but with voice , especially Google search for answers.

You can have one in each room and it can talk to you anywhere. Like in kitchen you can ask for the recipe for sam zham bah and it will read out to you from Google search. Lol.
I like that I can play any song by the title or the top song of the week, just by voice. Chinese song also can.

Once I experimented connecting my phone to it and managed to send out a WhatsApp message just by voice. But troublesome to connect.
During the last Amazon sale, the echo was going for half price. So I bought as I had to replace my spoilt alarm clock anyway.

One important question: can Alexa recognize our local English accent (not expecting Singlish) ?

 

Last thing I want is to have to speak Queen's English just to get it to work..... :D

Yes, confirm can recognize our local accent.  Mine is singlish heavy accent also can pick up all the time, as the mic is really sensitive.  Just make sure your Mrs is not named Alexa and you can tell it to do anything, disclaimer stated.  Lol.

haha ingenius speaks like a true local. no need worry.

 

speaking of local english. That day i was quite irritated by this Filipino lady that didn't seem to understand what i was saying despite repeating myself several times. Then i realised i was pronouncing "v" as "w" as most locals do. Haha actually it's my own English that's not phonetically correct.

Indeed true self pawn  [:p]
