Alexa/Echo, Homepod or other, what say you?

Recommended Posts

So, Ive been looking at the Alexa/Homepod market, and while I have several apple products already, I know the Homepod will cost more, and so will all the accessories. So I've am leaning away from that.

Looking to hear from posters that have already got one of these, and what do they think the pros/cons are.

Thanks

I have the Echo Dot, which utilizes the "Alexa" interactions, and I LOVE it. The Dot is the Echo without the speakers, so if you either don't need nice speakers or already have some you can use, then the Dot is cheap and very cool. I use it mainly for reminders, which I use everyday.  I also use it to check the weather, play music and other things.  I have Amazon Prime, but for an additional $3.99 per month I have Amazon Music, and it allows me to use Alexa to play virtually any song, anytime I want. 

Cons would be occasionally having connectivity issues, but that's infrequent.

thanks, I broke down and ordered the Echo and a couple of dots, to put around the house, going to try the echo plugs, and light bulbs, so i can bring some technological advancement to my house.
