Let’s tell you about 10 Alexa-integrated smart speakers.

With Amazon’s Alexa, you can control many smart devices. Automating and activating many tasks hands-free is its advantage. There are many Bluetooth speakers which ‘claim’ to sync with Alexa. But it is better to go for a smart speaker which is integrated with Alexa and needs Wi-Fi to connect to your home network. This is a list of ten such speakers.

Amazon Echo Dot (Gen 5)

The Echo Dot is a great upgrade from its predecessor. The first thing you will notice is the speaker drivers. These would enable you to provide a wider range and offer good audio clarity. With the Eero Wi-Fi extender, it provides smooth connectivity with the Alexa unit.

For tap controls, you are provided with a fresh accelerometer so that you can pause, playback or even snooze irritating alarms.

Echo Dot 5th gen is also a low-cost affair as its earlier 4th gen version. So it is value for money, honey.

Amazon Echo Studio

The Amazon’s Echo series is designed for a superior audio experience. But Echo Studio is a stand-out performer among these offerings. The main reason for its exceptional performance is that it boasts five drivers and not one speaker.
