Why did I wait so long to do this? As a amazon over -purchaser that uses amazon tv-music-groceries etc I should have bought this when it came out. I got it on primeday as a friend said,, if it’s on sale it’ll be the best purchase you’ll make. Well it was. I’ve only had it 4 days and it’s transforming how I do things. It’s actually smaller than I expected but sounds good. There is a learning curve on how to use it but it’s not hard to learn. I realized day 2 I need to add skills to get it to do more things. I also changed it’s name and some other things in the app. I now use it to get ubers for me, timers and alarms for cooking and waking up, random things like what time is it when I’m sitting on the couch and don’t have my phone, of course music and more music.
