Facts About Echo Dot (4th Gen, 2020 release) | Smart speaker with Alexa | Charcoal

We have 5 other Alexa devices and this one is by far the quietest (not in a good way). Anyone else having issues with max volume being pretty low?

I just love my 3rd Gen Echo Dot devices, I got the 4th Gen 2020 today and im feeling weird with the audio quality of this new model, ill keep my 3rd gen where they are and this new will be at my daughter bedroom till my Apple Home pod mini arrive next February.

No matter how you change audio controls @ Alexa app , the device design goes against the 3rd gen audio quality, doesn´t use the surface properly to improve sound and feels powerless.

Sad for the first time with Echo Dot line up.

Does it need to stay plugged in, or is it wireless?

It must be plugged in. The networking is wireless, but the power is not. For the echo dot v3, there are lots of battery packs available that you connect to it, and it provides the power while the battery pack still has power. Not sure if they are available for this one yet, but since people created them for the v3… It must be plugged in. The networking is wireless, but the power is not. For the echo dot v3, there are lots of battery packs available that you connect to it, and it provides the power while the battery pack still has power. Not sure if they are available for this one yet, but since people created them for the v3, I would expect that over time they will be available for the v4. But it is not something it can do out of the box.

Can it connect with 3rd gen echo dot?

The 4th gen echo dot will NOT connect to a previous gen echo dot as a stereo pair. You can add it to any speaker group but it will not be a left or right speaker (stereo pair).

It would be better if this is a portable speaker. Any accessories recommended to make echo dot portable?

Mine echo dot 4th gen works with a GGMM D4 battery base. I love my echo dot wireless and portable!

I’m having trouble changing the name. Is it possible to change the name of this device like the others?

I set up my new Echo easily. Open your Amazon Alexa app, choose Echo & Alexa, find your 4th generation Dot and open. This should take you to DEVICE SETTINGS. At the top please locate the current name for the device. Underneath you should see EDIT NAME. Click on edit name and change the Dot’s name. Next, locate < at the… I set up my new Echo easily.

Double-check that the Dot is on the right network.

What is the smart plug?

The smart plug gives you a hands free outlet to use with the device. For instance, you can plug your lamp into the smart plug and ask Alexa to turn it off or on. The plugs are also great for coffee makers, turning the TV off and on, fans. I always found a great deal on a 12 -20 "smart plug" package through Amazon prime… The smart plug gives you a hands free outlet to use with the device.

I always found a great deal on a 12 -20 "smart plug" package through Amazon prime and they are compatible with Alexa so you could make so many tasks easier throughout the house. I ordered it as I am a disabled person’s and it helps with turning things on that are harder to reach, printing from forms from the other room, adjusting my thermostat etc . Hope this helps

how does to work with blind people

I am visually impaired and I find Alexa very helpful. I give verbal commands to turn devices on and off, lock and unlock my doors, set reminders for medications, lists and/or tasks, provide information re: time, weather and general knowledge.

I give verbal commands to turn devices on and off, lock and unlock my doors, set reminders for medications, lists and/or tasks, provide information re: time, weather and general knowledge. I also use her to make phone calls and as an intercom system in my home. Because I am accustomed to being in the dark, I use her to control lights for my sighted friends. She’s a great assistant and companion. She has the capacity to respond just to my voice but my husband is learning to use her as well. Hope this helps.

I cant seem to get the music on echo 4 to keep playing any suggestions

Reset it. Mine would play and then stop for no reason. I held the power button and restarted it

I cannot enable a request sound after my command to echo dot 4th gen even after following the directions & turning on sounds for “start of request”

No problem

Can you have it on but the light at the bottom off for use in my bedroom at night without the distracting light?

The light will only come on if you say "Alexa" (blue). red (if disconnected from the internet), yellow (if you have notifications). Otherwise the light is off.

Why did we lose the screen, shouldn’t next gen be better than previous? I’ve bought every gen, will be skipping this.

Only Echo Show models (and the Spot) have had a screen. If you mean the digital clock, there is a seperate model of the Echo Dot that still has that, just as was the case with the 3rd generation Dot:
https://www.amazon.com/Echo-Dot-With-Clock-4th-Gen/dp/B085M66LH1

how does the high and mid sound of this 4th gen clear compare to the 2nd gen , more crystal clear ?, i just use for radio listening only

in my opinion, the 4th gen IS better than the 2nd gen but, the 3rd gen i feel like has a little better bass and sound quality.

Has anyone tried ggmm d4 battery base?

I have GGMM D4 battery base. I use it to take my echo dot to the gym. GGMM D4 portable battery makes echo dot work as a wireless speaker. I love it!!

This need to be plugged in all the time? i thought it is a speaker like jbl. it prefer a portable speaker.

I also don’t like the always plugged in design. I bought a GGMM D4 battery base to make it movable. More convenient!!

There are products listed as alexa ‘enabled’ and others as alexa ‘built-in’. what is the difference, and can i filter by that when shopping?

Alexa “enabled” means it will work off commands you give to Alexa (e.g., smart plug). Alexa “built in” means you can speak your commands directly to the particular device.

Info About Echo Dot (4th Gen, 2020 release) | Smart speaker with Alexa | Charcoal (Reviews From Amazon)

Black device, white cable

Device is great, but beware… the black ones come with a white cable… unlike the previous model. No idea why they did this.

So far so good!

I have a few Dots around the house. One decided to have an attitude and she had to be replaced. Problem with voice recognition. I still pay the bills around here so she is not here any more!! HaHa!! I replaced her with the new Echo Dot 4th Gen in Blue. How pretty! It matches my home furnishings. Love the ball design. Very different but really kool. Sound is beautiful. I love playing music and the tone is great. I’ll update if I run into a problem but so far I’m really pleased with this new design, color and sound. Highly recommend.

Tiny size. PHENOMENAL sound.

Much smaller than expected but the sound is phenomenal. I have almost every single version of the Echo and Echo dot in my house for an easy to use Spotify music setup to surround my upstairs with music but this little orb is the best sounding of the lot. Highly recommended and a great improve over the Dot. I hope that Amazon keeps this style for a while.

Little Powerful Dot

The media could not be loaded.  I’m loving the full sound, a great upgrade. What I don’t like is the white cord, why not black? Not sure 🤔 who made the decision for the cord to be white. For a little tech toy the sound is really nice for the price. I love the new design, why not add a digital clock on the charcoal design was disappointing but not a huge one. Overall a great sound from a little toy, can’t wait for them to add the new feature that allow me to monitor issues when I’m away at work and alert me real time on my phone…..

Easy setup, Functional and Fun.

This is the the fifth dot I’ve purchased, but the first 4th gen. (4 3rd gen’s and 2 Toshiba Fire TVs). Setup was easy, so no news there but the sound quality is better than on the 3rd gens. Also, it hears better. The improved aesthetics are an eye-catcher that draw questions, comments and compliments. I have yet to set up my smart home so I can’t speak to it’s smart home functionality, but as with everything Amazon I’m looking forward to that integration. If you’re looking to jump into the smart assistant/Alexa world or looking to upgrade from previous generations then this is a good device though there are now plenty of 3rd gens, both new and pre-owned that are more reasonable. Still, this is a great device that I highly recommend. We use it, and all our other Dots all day long for announcing, news, music, drop-in, calendar and timer notifications, shopping among other features. In closing, five-stars! 🙂

Amazing Smart Speaker for under 50$

This smart speaker is great at controlling your smart home and light music listening. While it sounds okay to a person with good taste in sound, the normal consumer would love this. Overall a must-buy!

This has an amazing sound quality!

The media could not be loaded.  The sound quality on my Alexa is amazing. The voice recognition is spot on and commands can be heard and carried out while I’m in the next room. I can use this to call my sisters devices, 2000 miles away and it sounds like she’s in the next room. I’ve been able to organize all of my “to do” lists with ease and arrange appointments and functions as easy as just saying the words. This saves me times and helps me organize my life much more effectively and efficiently. Smart phones do almost everything these days so I wasn’t sure if I would use Alexa for anything that my phone doesn’t already do but I find it so much easier after synchronization of my smart phone and my Alexa. Of course Alexa can control any smart device set up in your home with ease and have your lights on and ready for you when you get home. I would highly recommend this version because of the amazing sound quality. Hope this helps!! 5 stars all around!!

I like it! 👍🏾

This is my fourth echo and the worst one of them all! I’ve had 2 generation 1 echo dots, a gen 3, and now this one! While the voice recognition does work and it has a bigger speaker the sound quality sucks! I normally like to listen to music while I cook dinner on the echo but this echo have no bass or treble. Just received it today and I’m about to send it back and just buy another Gen 3 for my downstairs. Amazon how do you upgrade a product but make it worse? 🤦‍♀️ DO NOT BUY if you care about sound quality.

EDITED: Decided to keep the Echo Dot and use it in a bed room with the sound quality really didn’t matter that much. I will say the voice recognition is a lot better than the echo three but I still prefer the echo three as far as sound quality. I increased it one star.

EDIT 4/15/21: I don’t know what type of Amazon did recently. But all of a sudden one day I started getting base and trouble on my echo IV and the sound quality improved. I’ve even had to turn the bass off because I decided to use this in my bedroom and all of my music made me want to dance instead of go to sleep with the extra bass 😂 I also want to add that I noticed the voice recognition and pick up is a lot better than my other Echo Dot Gen 3 so I’m changing this to 5 ⭐️

Vastly improved sound quality for voice

The media could not be loaded.  I recently purchased the Echo Dot 3rd generation during the Prime Days promotion, but was very dissatisfied with the sound quality: too much bass.

Today, I received the Echo Dot 4th generation, and I’m completely satisfied with the sound. Not only do I use the Dot for news and weather, but also listening to my audiobooks. This version is a real winner.

I can only upload one video, so it will be of the 4G device. Trust me when I say this is a tremendous improvement.

Best dot ever 👍😇

I currently have 6 Echo devices and I have had nearly every model since the original pringles can design. I love the look of the new globe style dots. I purchased this latest dot for use near my new Xbox in the media room. the sound is excellent for its size and I love the futuristic look and shape of the device. Highly recommended! Amazingly simple setup took all of 20 seconds using the alexa.amazon.com website!
