Thank you Amazon this is a great product for our Echo. Nice not to have to say a wake up word to carry out a command. Easy volume control. A must have!
Shame on you, Amazon1. No magnetic cradle anymore. That was the best part of the design!2. This remote with cradle was included in the first gen echo and now you milk your die hards for an addition 30 bucks!I have 3 Echo Plus', 2 Shows, 2 Taps, and a bunch of Dots. 300.00 for remotes for all? Shame on you, Amazon!
The remote is exceptionally helpful when I am away from the main unit. (I can hear the music and want to change it or turn off an alarm.) I have the one that came with the one I ordered, but need one for my Fire TV remote. For social media network analysis let me supply the keywords Need Magnetic Cradle for Amazon Echo Remote!
i will have to update my post. The remote quit working but it was the Echo needing to be paired again. It looks like the Alexa app is the problem because the forget device link didn’t show up on the mobile app u less you did it on an iPad. The remote is now working again after pairing it over again.
Excellent remote to operate our outdoor speakers .
Since I have a speaker in my living room and a speaker in the bedroom, the remote is a much-needed convenience, as I just had knee surgery and don't have the ability to walk from room to room
We have two echos, which we love. We also have two echo remotes that we hate, neither has worked more than a couple of random times. I have been more surprised at the times that they were actually functioning, usually they just don't work at all. Very poorly made.
I have ZERO clue why all the people are acting so confused about how to get the back off. I was all worried I mean someone even posted a YouTube video link 😂😂😂. Um it's like 99.9% of battery compartments. Don't worry it's common sense.I love this remote. It took my Echo from a Honda to a Mercedes. She's in the kitchen and I'm in my master bedroom controlling tunes. One reviewer said you had to be in the line of sight for the remote to work which isn't true for me. Works like a charm, easy to connect, and extremely useful. If you have an Echo, Dot, or Show you will want this remote. No more screaming over loud music not being heard.
I like mine. Very useful while music is playing through the Dot connected to the amp.
Amazing how great this works. No need to even say Alexa when asking it to do something.
I wanted to avoid moving my Echo Dot around my large flat. But the range of the remote is no more than my voice! I'd have been better to buy a battery for the Dot. The description implied you could control the Dot from far away, but it doesn't work unless it's close enough for my voice to work. So it was a complete waste of money.
Do not waste your money! Remote failed a few days after the warranty expired.
Does not work anymore after only a month of use, took great care of it! Echo is still working... for now.
My remote stopped working today. It died of old age, apparently (about two years old). Fresh batteries, unpairing/attempting to repair, and restarting my Echo have not been successful. I understand that two years is quite a bit of time in the tech world, but I wasn't using this thing daily and it should have lasted longer. I hope the other products that Amazon manufactures last longer than this.
Controlling the volume, play/pause and back/next without interruption to your music is priceless. I use the wand to control my home automation and using Alexa. The best trick is the "Simon says" command when you're in a different room and little kids are taking to Alexa, great fun
I loved the remote until it stopped working after 7 months. Replaced batteries and followed instructions to pair the device again. Despite trying this a few times, the remote is just not working. Something this simple should last many many years, not just several months!
Bought this item to try to get Alexa Echo to work a bit better. It arrived with No way Jose! Mishaps. But have tried out brand new batteries. Still did not work correctly. Hope that Amazon takes heed and helps me to replace this item.Thank you very much,Howard Berl
