Amazon Echo 2 – Is it really worth it?

Previously we saw unboxing and setting up the Amazon Echo 2. In this one we will interact with Alexa, Amazon Echo's voice assistant, and ask her various questions from different subjects and level of complexity. While doing so, we will  be asking Alexa few fun questions and see what sort of humor is stored out there. All of this and much more, experience in below video.

At few places, Alexa had been hit or miss. Some few commands it simply refuses to listen and we are yet to figure out why. Is it the way we speak? Is it that we are asking her consecutive question not giving enough processing time in between? Well I honestly asked her if she is tired and the response apparently was No! Whatever the case may be, it certainly is a fun device and with better service integration it can become part of your life just like your mobile phone. If it's worth it at this point of time, I would say let's wait and let the services catch up. Because most often than not you will always find yourself playing music with those amazing speakers.
