3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Clearer Sound With Retrograde Notification Lighting.
By Dave on 20 July 2021
My Echo Dot (4th Generation) Smart Speaker arrived on time and is in good condition. Thank you Amazon (Au) for dispatching my order on the day after ordering and Amazon Logistics for their usual fast, safe and personal delivery.

Alexa (Amazon's personal assistant) was invited into our household to primarily help my elderly Mother (Mum). Mum has limited sight, hearing, mobility and is susceptible to falling. So, l thought Alexa would be perfect to tell Mum the time, weather information and play some music for her. Alexa is confined to the rooms Mum spends most of her time in. I'm too old and set in my ways for all the other tasks that Alexa can perform. Initially, I purchased an earlier Echo Dot (3rd Gen). However, Mum found that the sound was muffled with insufficient volume. Later, Amazon (Au) offered me a hefty discount on their latest Echo Dot model (4th Gen - with front firing speaker), so I bought one.

The Echo Dot is a lopped sphere with an approximate diameter of 10cm and has an approximate height of 8.5cm. It is powered by a plug back (Australian plug) that can be used in standard power sockets without affecting access to the other sockets. The plug back power lead is equipped with a plug to connect it to the Echo Dot (4th Gen). The lead has an approximate length of 147cm. The Echo Dot (4th Gen) has 2 sockets - one for the plug back power lead and the other for an extension speaker or headphones. Notification lighting is located at the bottom of the lopped orb.

Set up was easy because I ticked the box to link this purchase to my Amazon account before tapping the purchase tile. Connecting the Echo Dot (4th Gen) to the internet is accomplished through the Alexa App. Alexa and the Alexa App guides you through this process - Alexa did most of the set-up, for me. Preferences for radio station provider Apps and music streaming services (requires a paid membership) are selected in the Alexa App - YouTube is a good resource.

The Echo Dot (4th Gen) is easy to use. Simply ask Alexa to do a task (eg play music) and providing that it has been enabled in the Alexa App, Alexa will comply. Very occasionally, there have been a few "misunderstandings" with Alexa. These mainly concern weather (wrong location) and streaming service playlists (wrong playlist). But, these "misunderstandings" are few and far between. Overall, Alexa has recognised the call and responded to requests, accordingly.

However, unless Mum is standing close to the Echo Dot (4th Gen) it still wasn't clear or loud enough, for her. The solution was to Bluetooth pair the Alexa Dot (4th Gen) to a pair of active speakers - done via the Alexa App. Now, clarity and volume aren't an issue.

In hindsight, I wouldn't have purchased the Echo Dot (4th Gen) because:
▪︎ My older Echo Dot (3rd Gen) is quite capable of Bluetooth pairing with the active speakers.
▪︎The notification lighting is smaller and tucked under the Echo Dot (4th Gen). It is not so noticeable as the larger top placed notification lighting of the Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - that must be the reason why I continue to receive all those "keeping up with Alexa" emails. Definitely, a retrograde step if Alexa is to be used as a notification device.
▪︎ the Echo Dot (4th Gen) spherical shape is considerably larger and more obtrusive than the lower profile puck shape of the Echo Dot (3rd Gen).
▪︎The difference in sound quality is relatively small. Although, the sound from the Echo Dot (4th Gen) is a little clearer than the Echo Dot (3rd Gen). However, both are low fidelity devices.

Whilst it is nice to have the current Alexa Dot device, if there is a good deal on an earlier model, I would purchase that and not the current model.
