There’s a new addition to Amazon’s lineup of Alexa-enabled devices: the Echo Spot, a sleek and customisable smart alarm clock that features a variety of custom-designed clock faces and fun colours.

It’s built for the nightstand, with a gradual lighting display that makes it easy to set and view alarms, see the time, weather, or song titles at a glance, and a directional speaker that delivers vibrant sound.

Echo Spot is available now in Black, Glacier White, or Ocean Blue for £79.99, but Prime members can get it for just £49.99 while stocks last, in celebration of Prime Day.

“Customers care about the way they wake up in the morning and go to bed at night and the all-new Echo Spot will transform the way they start and end their day,” said Eric Saarnio, Vice President, Amazon Devices International. “Thanks to customisable clock faces, personalised designs, new alarm sounds and colourful visual animations, Echo Spot is the best smart alarm clock designed for any bedside table.”

Read on to discover some of the exciting features of the all-new Echo Spot.

Echo Spot: interactive and personalised display

Customers love asking Alexa for information—in fact, Alexa answers multiple requests every millisecond, with users asking Alexa for the weather, to set a reminder or to set an alarm, tens of millions of times every day. Echo Spot comes with a variety of custom-designed clock faces, new visual animations, and fun colours that make it easy to see the responses to these requests at a glance.

Simply ask Alexa to set alarms on Echo Spot by saying things like "Alexa, set a weekday alarm for 7am with 90’s alternative.” Or, wake up to one of four new custom alarm sounds—Aurora, Daybreak, Endeavor, and Flutter. And, if you want a bit more sleep when your alarm goes off, just tap Echo Spot to snooze. You can also ask Alexa for the weather to see the temperature, along with an illustration—like a sun, rain cloud, or snowflake—that appears on the screen.

Echo Spot’s display can even be customised to fit the aesthetic of your bedroom. Choose from six different colour themes—orange, violet, magenta, lime, teal, and blue—or mix and match colours with a variety of clock faces.

The new, visual display also shows song titles when music plays. To skip songs, simply ask Alexa, or quickly tap the display. There are also buttons on the top of the all-new Echo Spot to quickly change the volume—or you can ask Alexa to adjust the sound up or down.

Vibrant sound

Enjoy vibrant sound with the all-new Echo Spot, which includes a 1.73” front-firing directional speaker that delivers clear vocals and deep bass. Just ask Alexa to play music, podcasts and audiobooks from your favourite providers like Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and more.

Take control of your smart home

Connect your Echo Spot to compatible smart home products and set up Alexa Routines to help automate your daily tasks. For example, you can set up a routine that gently wakes you with music and gradual light, or set an evening routine that dims the lights, lowers the thermostat and plays music to help you drift off to sleep.

Connect with family and friends

It’s even easier to check in with your loved ones. You can ask Alexa to place audio calls to family and friends on other Alexa-enabled devices, make household announcements, audibly ‘Drop In’ on other enabled devices in your household, or get alerts and audio from your compatible smart doorbell.

Built with privacy in mind

As with all of our devices, Echo Spot is built with multiple layers of privacy controls, including a microphone on/off button and the ability to view and delete voice recordings. To learn more about the features that provide transparency and control with Alexa, you can visit the Alexa Privacy Hub.
