Echo Review – Cons
Inferior Sound quality: The sound qualities of the speakers are inferior in comparison to speakers at a similar price. Remember, the Echo is not a pure sound system. Its role is more of voice-enabled home assistant with the ability to provide decent sound quality which it does
Lacks Music Streaming Range: Limited choice of music streaming services is a big drawback. But remember you are not buying a streaming device rather a home assistant with music streaming ability.
Inability to Simultaneously Perform Multiple Commands: Alexa has the limitation of taking one command at a time. Thus, one just can’t give multiple commands in a single sentence. Like, Alexa switches on the lights and play music. This is a bit of drag but I am hopeful Amazon will address it in the near future. Also, it’s not only Echo no other home assistant can take multiple commands. So, not a real reason to not buy the Echo.
Four capabilities Echo should have but it still doesn’t have these capabilities
- Echo can’t be used to command other Echo or Fire TV devices remotely. Like you ask Echo in the bedroom to play music on Echo in the hall or adjacent room.
- Lacks the ability to function simultaneously with multiple echoes’s in a room or across rooms for multiroom audio playing
- Echo can’t give you notifications or reminders for everything. Currently echo can give only timers or alarms as well as there are no skills/apps available to address this. Further, you can’t customize the music/sound of alarms/ reminders and can only use default sounds available on the Echo.
- Thinking of placing your customize trigger word for Echo, you can’t do it. Echo becomes active only when it hears one of the three words only i.e. Alexa, Amazon, and Echo.
