Amazon Echo and Google Home/Nest smart speakers have crossed over from the early adopter phase to each finding a place within the mainstream culture. Both are functional, but if you're like me, you still might not be convinced which company's voice assistant is right for you.
How to set it up?
- In order to set up the Smart Plus just plug the device into an electrical socket and setup using the Alexa app.
- Once connected, you can ask Alexa on any Echo, Fire TV or Alexa built-in device or the Alexa app to turn on/off the power.
- The Echo Flex Plug-in is a smart speaker that can be directly put into a standard electrical outlet, avoiding the need for wires and chargers. The device also doubles up as an adapter (7.5W) as it comes with a built-in USB-A port or other devices.
