The most prominent differences between the latest Amazon Echo Dot 4th-Generation smart speaker and earlier models are its small size and round shape. This smart speaker features an LED display that you tap to snooze or create a fuller sound when needed. There are two models available: one with and one without a clock—with a $10 difference. Both devices sport Amazon’s standard fabric covering. Most impressively, its sphere-shaped design provides a presentable display for your bedside table. Also, with this modern design, the Amazon Echo Dot is one you won’t want to hide during use, especially with the presentable LED ring at the base for a warm glow. Furthermore, this LED light is helpful for seeing if Alexa is connected or not. Both smart speakers come with four microphones, which is great for allowing Alexa to pick up your voice. Alternatively, you can mute them for privacy. Overall, this do-it-all device is presentable, functional, and practical.
