Today we have brought a review of the Echo Input portable speaker for you. Not only will you like this smart speaker look, but its functions are also much better. This smart speaker is not like an ordinary Bluetooth portable speaker that just connected to Bluetooth and started doing it. For this, you have to download the Alexa app on your smartphone. Only then you will be able to use it.
How to set up?
- To set-up the Echo Input, one must first download the Alexa app on your smartphone.

- To enable the set-up mode, press the button above the device. After the press, the indicator in the center converts from blue to orange.
- As soon as this indicator changes from blue to orange, the device will tell you that the set-up mode is turned on. After that, you go to your smartphone app and connect the smart speaker through it.
- After the speaker is connected, you have to connect the device to WiFi via the app itself. Also, only after entering the set-up mode, you will be able to connect your smart speaker to Bluetooth.
After connecting the device to the internet and Bluetooth, you will be able to use it as a smart speaker and portable speaker. Once connected to Bluetooth, you will be able to use it as a portable speaker. If you are watching a music video in a smartphone or browsing online content through the OTT platform, this device will act as a portable speaker. At the same time, if it is not connected to Bluetooth then it will work like a smart speaker. For this, you have to train the virtual assistance Alexa of this device. We are going to tell you some commands of Alexa through which you will be able to use it.
Alexa Tips and Tricks
Alexa is smart virtual assistance that can speak in many languages. Suppose you want to translate in a new language, then it will do that for you too. For this you just have to give the command- “Alexa, what do you say I ate the chocolates in Italian” or “Alexa, translate how are you in the Japanese language”? By doing this, Alexa will translate them. In this way, you can learn many languages with this smart speaker.
Just like you want to know the meaning of your name, you just have to give this smart speaker a command – “Alexa, what do you mean by Yashvi?” Or “Alexa, what do you mean by the name Dhriti”? This will tell you the meaning of your name.
Not only this, but you can also pay your bill with this smart speaker. For this, you have to say, “Alexa, pay my mobile bill”. By doing this, it can also make contactless payments using the billing method of your smartphone.
Not only this, Alexa can also solve the math questions. Like you ask, “Alexa, how many grams are there in a kilo.” So your smart speaker also answers about this. If you want to start your day with a romantic song, then you can give a command to this smart speaker. For this you just have to say, after giving the command “Alexa, wake me up at 6 AM to kishore kumar songs” it will pick you up with that song. Or you can also use a bhajan in an alarm.
In this way, Alexa helps you to tell the story and also to locate the phone.

Which never makes you feel lonely. This lets you talk like your friend. With this, you can do many different things yourself.
Echo Input Features
This portable smart speaker comes with a fabric design that supports 360 degrees sound. You can also unplug and carry this device. It has a 4,800mAh battery which supports a standby time of 11 hours. It has 4 LED indicators to view the charging of the battery. These four indicators will light up after the battery is fully charged. As it discharges, its indicators will stop burning. When an indicator appears to be burning, you can put this device in charge.
This smart speaker comes with support for Amazon Music, Apple Music, JioSaavn, and Gaana Music app. You can also give the command to fill and reduce its volume. Additionally, it also switches off with the command. The special feature of this smart speaker is that it supports many types of smart home devices. It also has a button to turn off the microphone for the privacy of users. The microphone of the device goes off as soon as you press it and it does not follow any command. In the upper part of the device, you get to know about its mic off through the red indicator.
The Echo Input portable smart speaker which I liked is quite easy to use. Just download the app, connect and then you can use it anywhere. Also, it can follow your voice commands from very far. What it did not like in this is that its music playback time is slightly shorter. To use it, it has to be kept mostly in charge. If you are playing music, it plays for only 3 to 4 hours without a battery. It costs Rs 3,299 and in this price range, you can use it as a smart speaker as well as a portable speaker.
