Amazon Echo (1st Generation)


Amazon Echo (1st Generation)

Can anyone comment on the sound quality of the Echo Dot vs the 1st Gen Echo being sold at the same price (albeit used)?

Does the Echo Dot has more skills or other features not found in the older 1st Gen Echo

I have both and Echo 1st Gen has better sound with more substantial feel. Haven’t experienced and far in skills, just the size footprint preference.

Ditto what they said.

Thanks Scausr and Bchlor4evr for your comments. Much appreciated!

Does generation 1 work in spanish? I have family over seas with other echos. Will this work in soanish?

Google says 1st gen doesn’t support Spanish.

Great question! (and thanks to ThunderThighs for the answer). I assumed that it would support all Alexa languages (including Spanish), as this should be a software issue. The 3rd Gen Echo Dot supports Spanish.

I have the Echo 1st Gen and I do agree it does sound better than the Echo dots. I also like that it sits up higher to pick up your voice commands.
