Anyone who’s embraced Alexa likely has an Echo product to thank. Since 2014, Amazon’s smart speakers and displays have been listening for their wake words, ready to set timers and give you the weather, among other things.
Alexa has expanded her virtual footprint to other interesting products and even software. You can access Alexa in apps like the Amazon shopping app and Amazon Music on iOS or Android.

If you’re wondering which one to get, especially with Prime Day deals on the horizon, read on for a rundown of what each device brings to the table.
