All of this can be done through the Amazon Echo speaker, however, Echo is not the best in the business when it comes to playing music.

Since Amazon opened its technology behind Alexa for everyone, several manufacturers have embraced Alexa and installed her in their own devices. The majority of them fall under the speaker category.

Here’s a list of top 5 speakers other than Amazon Echo which are equipped with Alexa and produce amazing sound.
