I received an Amazon Dot for free with another purchase i made. I hooked it up and have only used it once over a 6 week period. I don't know how much use I will actually get out of it but I do have it. I am more interested in getting some smart products such as a thermostat and light bulbs.It's all a matter of habit. We use ours constantly all day (which is why we upgraded to the show) for simple things like time, weather, timers, reminders, questions like how old is Dolly Parton, who holds the record for most 3 point shots in the NBA, or anything that comes to mind while talking or watching TV. I knoe I could look it up on Google, but asking Alexa is so simple and fast and always on.
