The smart speaker has an LED light ring at the bottom which pulses in different colors making you see the current function easily. Blue color for Bluetooth, white for Alexa, and red glow shows that the battery is low.
It has three buttons on the side: one for volume, one engages Alexa, and the other one is for power. You can find the pairing button, a button that controls light, and a USB port for charging the battery by lifting up the control panel. Ensure that you take care of the speaker since it is not drop-resistant or waterproof. It has no line-out port feature.
The sound quality is okay with deep bass, average mid-tone range, and less than crisp treble. Tap the microphone button to activate amazon Alexa, the cloud-connected virtual assistant. The Amazon Alexa is not voice-activated making it less useful. Some of Alexa’s features include the following:
• Recurring alarms and setting timers
• Reading off sports, news, traffic updates, and weather
• Calculating figures and looking up facts
• Playing podcasts from TuneIn and iHeartRadio
• Controlling the smart devices that are compatible with Alexa.
