Welcome to Echo Plus

Your guide to Alexa

Now that you’ve setup your Echo Plus, here are some more things to try. Echo Plus connects to Alexa, a cloud-based voice service, to play music, read the news, check sports scores or the weather, and keep you organized around the house—instantly. All you have to do is ask.

Set up your smart home in minutes

Echo Plus has a built-in hub that seamlessly connects and controls compatible smart devices such as light bulbs, door locks, switches, and plugs. Just say “Alexa, discover my devices” and Echo Plus will discover and set up compatible smart home devices.

Set up groups and routines in the Alexa App to control multiple devices at scheduled times or with a single voice command, like locking the doors and turning off the lights when you go to bed. See compatible devices for simple setup.

Already have a smart home hub or bridge? Echo Plus is compatible with many popular hubs and bridges. Learn more.

Voice control your music

Alexa lets you listen to music from services like Prime Music, TuneIn, Radioplayer, and Spotify. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you already have access to over 1 million songs from today’s most popular artists. Just ask for a playlist to suit your mood.

Hands-free calling and messaging

You can use your Echo Plus to call or message anyone with a supported Echo device or the free Alexa App. Once you’ve set up a voice profile and synced your contacts in the app, just ask Alexa to place a call to mom or send a quick message to a friend. Alexa will let you know when you have an incoming call or new message, and a green light ring will appear on your Echo Plus.

Alexa, answer the call.
Alexa, send a message to Tom.
