Undecided on whether this was a need purchase, however, after using it i couldn’t imagine not having it. Aesthetically pleasing. Was able to set up own images as backgrounds. It actually listens well unlike Siri, who drives me insane! Puts out decent sound for the size. Favourite feature is that you can ask Alexa to adjust the sound level. Plays news updates. We keep in kitchen, used as a radio daily. Highly recommend, Makes it very tempting to switch from an Apple household.
