As the name suggests it is round in shape with controls placed on top.While vol increase and decrease is easy to understand the other two buttons have to be used to decode them. The instruction leaflet could have been more elaborate. The instructions in App are also not easy to grasp quickly.Just started to use it.It will hopefully be a positive learning experience for both of us.
No complaints about the hardware. But there are a lot of software issues. The app itself is very naive. It requires a lot of learning. It cannot be customized as per local region. Simple questions Alexa is not able to answer and its a total waste of time. I would've rather purchased google assistant. Dont think there's any skill enhancement that can be done. Its not compatible with most of the other smart home devices. Be it 2nd or 3rd gen, it will take ages for Alexa to adapt and work. I think Alexa is only interested in listening and sending data to server, it cannot understand neither it can help you with your questions. Total waste of technology. This product is frustrating. Good that I didn't waste my money buying a fresh one.
