Amazon Echo Spot, now officially available in Ireland

Alexa, Show me something new.


Officially shipping to Ireland for the first time, the Amazon Echo Spot has been announced as available from today. The Echo Spot delivers everything you have come to expect from Alexa with a smaller design and the added convenience of a circular screen so that Alexa can show you things.



New microphone array with second-generation far-field technology

Echo Spot features second-generation far-field technology with four microphones, acoustic beam-forming technology, and enhanced noise cancellation so it can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. If you have more than one Echo, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you’re closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).


Front-facing camera and Alexa calling help you stay connected—call anyone hands free

Put an Echo Spot in each room and use the Drop In feature to connect, hands-free, with other devices in your home. Drop in on the kitchen to ask when dinner will be ready, or drop in on the living room to see how homework is going. You can also use Echo Spot to start a voice or video call, or send a message—simply say, “Alexa, call dad,” or “Alexa, send a message to Mary.”


“Echo Spot combines the popular small design of Echo Dot with the added benefit of a display, and all the things you love about Alexa into a stylish, compact device,

See the weather, watch video news briefings, glance at your alarm clock, make video calls, and more. We think customers in Ireland will find lots of places for Echo Spot in their homes.”


- Jorrit Van der Meulen, Vice President, Amazon Devices International



Built-in speaker, plus Bluetooth and audio-out to connect to your existing speaker systems

Alexa can talk to you and play music on Echo Spot through the built-in 2W speaker. Echo Spot can also directly connect to speakers through Bluetooth or using a 3.5mm stereo cable, enabling you to add Alexa to your home entertainment system. Then, use just your voice to control Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn, and more. Plus, with the multi-room music feature, you can play your favourites throughout your home, with synchronised music across all of your Echo devices.



Easily control your smart home

With compatible smart home devices, Echo Spot can integrate all of the smart home capabilities that customers love about Alexa—turn on the lights, view your live camera feed from the nursery, set up Routines, control the temperature, lock your doors with your voice when you’re heading to bed, and more.


Echo Spot is available in black and white for £119.99, with the option to pay in Euro at checkout, with Irish credit cards, and ship directly to addresses in Ireland. Customers can order starting today at www.amazon.co.uk/echospot.
