Echo-Dot for kids

Local News

Amazon unveiled a kid-friendly version of its echo-dot smart speaker, powered by voice assistant Alexa.

The Echo-Dot kids edition plays music and answers questions …But the answers are tailored to a child audience.

Now the Echo-Dot is likely to prompt concerns about privacy, but an Amazon spokeswoman emphasized that it only listens for the wake word – “Alexa.”

Parents can also set time limits for use and pre-select which services kids can access. 

Songs with inappropriate lyrics are automatically blocked, and the ability to purchase items from the internet is disabled.

The Echo-Dot Kids Edition is $30 more than the adult version.

It is aimed at kids ages 5 to 12.
