If you have a smart speaker like the Amazon Echo or Google Nest Mini or any other device that supports Alexa or Google Assistant, then you can do quite a few things with your voice. Be it controlling smart lights or changing music or even asking Alexa to read out a new recipe, smart speakers come handy and can help you let you get rid of some old devices in your house.
If you are still using an old speaker which you don’t want to throw away then you can add an Amazon Echo Dot device to the old speaker through AUX connection. While the old speaker will deliver the output sound, the Echo Dot will let you change music through voice. Also, if you feel your smart speaker sounds better then you can always discard the old one.
If you have a smart TV, simply enable Alexa or use a FireTV Stick along with an Echo Dot to literally talk your TV to change content accordingly.
If you don’t want to use your phone as an alarm clock to get a sound sleep, you can always instruct your smart speaker to wake you up in the morning.
Most smart speakers are wired, this means that they are required to be kept at a fixed position in home. Smart speaker allows you to call and send messages to your contacts through voice commands. So, in a way you can use them as a landline without hunting for your phone in your house.
Smart speakers can let you tune to digital radio stations of different countries, music streaming apps and also let you listen to podcasts thus easily retiring the FM Radio.
If you still have a digital photo frame or wish to have one, then opt for the smart display or the Google Nest Hub. It can do all the things that a smart speaker can do and also act like a digital photo frame and more.
If you have smart LED bulbs, then you can talk to your smart speaker to change colour, intensity or to switch it on or off.
