Amazon Echo Input
The Amazon Echo Input is a variation of the Echo Dot device that includes microphones for receiving Alexa voice commands but eliminates the built-in speaker. So in order to hear Alexa voice responses and enjoy music streaming and other features, you’ll need to attach it to a speaker or some kind of audio system.
What the Amazon Echo Input can do?
Connects wirelessly to Bluetooth speakers.
Connects to any powered speaker, stereo, or home theater receiver that has a 3.5mm input jack or an RCA jack (3.5mm to RCA cable converter may be required).
Plays streaming music from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Pandora, SiriusXM, Spotify, iHeart Radio and more on a Bluetooth speaker or connected audio system.
Microphones are built-in for questions or commands, even when music is playing. The Echo input also works with the Alexa Whisper Mode.
Using Alexa voice commands, you can tell the Echo Input to play music, read or play the news, check the weather and traffic, answer questions, set alarms and timers, add items to a to-do or shopping list, and control compatible smart home devices by adding the appropriate Alexa Skill(s)
Voice-only phone calling and the Alexa Drop-in feature only works when the Echo Input is connected to a speaker or audio system using the cable connection option.
With Alexa, the Echo Input can communicate with and control other Echo and Fire TV devices.
There are no volume controls on the Echo Input. Alexa can control the volume that comes from the Echo Input, but the powered speaker or audio system it is connected to has to provide its own volume control. If you tell Alexa to turn up the volume, but your external speaker or audio system’s volume is turned down, you may not hear anything.
