No you don't need a smartphone to use Alexa on Echo.

We have a couple of them plus we also have Amazon Prime & Music Unlimited.

They should not be saying you can listen to any song you want with it because you cannot. You need Music Unlimited but don't have to have Prime. Unlimited Music costs more per month/year if you don't have Prime.

Re: Why should I have an Echo?

The only essential is a wifi connection.  You can use the free version of Pandora to listen to most types of music.  I also have Amazon Music for a little over $3./mo, where I can listen to just about everything ever recorded.  I use the Echo constantly for asking dumb questions that pop into my head like distances between cities, spelling of a word, time, temperature outside, how many quarts in a gallon, and a million other things.

Thanks for posting that. I just thought about it. Yes she will need Internet to use it plus put the App on her computer.

Re: Why should I have an Echo?

there's a bunch of stuff you can do with it,

I really like it so "set a timer" or check the weather,

One needs speakers of some type,  listening to music over the  computer right , do you need a receiver?

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.

Re: Why should I have an Echo?

Has anyone heard of the new Echo Plus?  At this time the cost is $149.99 and according to reviews the sound is supposed to be so much better.

 

I think I am going to wait until QVC has it as a TSV and see if I want to order it.
