Amazon Echo Dot (5th Gen) specifications and features

Amazon's Echo Dot (5th Gen) has a design that is similar to that of its predecessor, the Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen), with a spherical shape and a ring indicator light at the base. The smart speaker comes with a few new features, including a built-in temperature sensor, ultrasound motion detection, and a promise of improved sound quality.

For connectivity, the new Echo Dot uses Wi-Fi (2.4GHz and 5GHz) for streaming music directly using Alexa, as well as Bluetooth connectivity, that can be used with most compatible source devices such as smartphones, tablets, and audio players. The smart speaker has a single 1.73-inch speaker setup, and can be used with the Alexa app for various communication and audio streaming functions. As with other Echo smart speakers, you can use the Echo Dot (5th Gen) to control compatible smart home and IoT equipment.

Some additional new features include gesture (tap) controls for certain functions such as controlling music and snoozing alarms, a physical microphone mute button for privacy, and the ability to use the Echo Dot as a Wi-Fi extender with compatible Amazon Eero routers. The power adapter for the Echo Dot (5th Gen) is included in the box, with the speaker working only when connected to a power source; there is no built-in battery for fully wireless use.
