  2. Built-in ZigBee smart home hub makes operating electrical devices easier
  3. Voice reception is excellent
  4. It is super easy to set-up
  5. Amazon echo plus upgrades itself regularly leaving you with better options.

Cons:

  1. Even though it comes with ZigBee smart home hub, you cannot use ZigBee switches and sensors with it.
  2. Sound quality is still not comparable to the market leaders in normal speakers – though we would still rate it highly among the other Bluetooth speakers.

The final verdict:

Amazon echo plus is definitely a better version of amazon echo. But this technology is still going through modifications. A good audio quality still lacks in this. Even after it comes with built-in ZigBee smart home hub, users have reported issues with its pairings. This definitely needs work.

Nevertheless, if you wish to get into the smart home game, this can be your perfect first buy. One of the incredible customer bases for it is those with immobility disorders. They will definitely benefit from it.
