It scared me at first
Oh, crap, just invited spy tech into my living room !
But instead of being scared , I chose to embrace it and have fun.
Learned how to play music and now trying to entertain Groot, or pit bull with various dog sounds.
So, what else can I do with it?
You can use an Echo Dot for anything you’d use a normal Echo for—anything you can ask or command of Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa. You can use it to play music from sources such as Amazon Music or Spotify; you can ask her about the weather, get updates on the news, or a heads-up on your schedule; you can also use her to set timers or alarms. And with the addition of third-party apps called “skills,” you can broaden her capabilities further, so you can order Domino’s pizza or an Uber, or play a trivia game.

Do you have a home stereo to hook it up to? Oh and you can change the name in which is turns on to. And I encourage you to do so as commercials will end up pissing you off when it is a echo dot one. I had to with my dot.
You can also just have conversations with it. Kinda creepy though. If you get smart bulbs and all the other fancy stuff you can get the app and control every with your dot or phone when not home.

Ask it how much energy it consumes, and why ?
Ask it what the smoke is coming-out from it's back-side ?
Ask it if it has a gender identity, and why ?
Ask it when it will end ?
Ask it if anything can move at FTL speeds ?
Ask it what it felt like, to travel faster than the speed of light, during the 'supposed' phase of universal expansion, when 'supposedly' everything in the universe did move at FTL speeds ?
Ask it to make prognostications on sports matches, and stocks, and keep a record of how it does ?
Ask it what is really necessary ?

Might have sexy conversations with it later after the wife goes to bed with a few more beers in me.
