What are all-new echo dot 5th gen features?

  • All-new echo dot kids – our most popular and cutest smart speaker with alexa, made for kids (not a toy). The improved speaker delivers clearer vocals and rich, vibrant sound.
  • Where learning meets fun – kids can ask alexa to play music, read a bedtime story, get help with their homework, and more. Stream songs from amazon music, apple music, spotify, and others.
  • Includes 1 year of amazon kids+ – a digital subscription designed for kids aged 3-12 to safely learn, grow, and explore. On echo dot, kids can enjoy kid-friendly audible books, interactive games, and educational alexa skills. After 1 year, your subscription will automatically renew every month starting at just $4.99/month plus applicable tax. You may cancel any time by visiting the amazon parent dashboard or contacting customer service.
  • Easy-to-use parental controls – alexa will automatically give kid-friendly responses and filter explicit songs. You can also set daily time limits and review activity in the amazon parent dashboard.
  • For growing independence – kids can help take charge of their routines with alexa by setting their own alarms, turning off compatible smart lights, and calling parent-approved friends and family.
  • Turn alexa’s voice into a dragon – kids can customize the way their alexa sounds with a pretend owl or dragon voice, along with character-inspired songs, jokes, and greetings.
  • 2-year worry-free guarantee – if it breaks, return it and we’ll replace it for free.
  • Designed to protect your privacy – amazon is not in the business of selling your family’s personal information to others. Built with multiple layers of privacy controls, including a mic off button.

Looking for specific info?

Can an adult use this without restrictions? I assume i can remove these with the parental controls?

You have to setup parental controls, otherwise it’s an regular echo, just cute for the kids.

También funciona en español?

Sí, funciona perfectamente en español.

Will the free year of amazon kids be on my account because i purchased the echo or the account that it will be registered with (my niece)?

Beneath “add to cart” and the return policy, there is a box you should uncheck which reads “link device to your amazon account to simplify setup”. As long as you do not link this device to your account, then i believe it will activate the amazon kids plus subscription under your family member’s account when they link the device to their account during set-up. This goes for all amazon devices you gift to others: echo, fire, ring, etc

Will it play any song you ask it to?

Amazon just changed it’s music service to push people to amazon music unlimited. All devices now preference the song you request but ultimately play a soundtrack of similar music so you don’t always get what you ask for.

Me gustaría usar el echo infantil por su diseño pero puede amazon kids mostrar contenido adulto ?

Sí, desde la app de alexa puede decidir si quiere activaer o desactivar amazon kids para que funcione como cualquier dispositivo ecodot.

Do you need a hub for this?

No you don’t.

Can you set an alarm on this?

Yes, with voice or app.

Habla español?

Si, perfectamente.

Can kids place orders on amazon?

You can also turn-off this feature so no one can order from an echo.

Does this have the feature to call parents?

The 2 echo dots i purchased are a birthday present – being given tomorrow and a christmas present, so i do not know any of the features. Sorry.

Increased functionality, warranty, still free year of kids+

Biggest upgrades/changes from echo dot kids 4th gen (2020) to echo dot kids 5th gen (2022):

-speaker: now 1.73-inch speaker with improved bass/low end, previous version was 1.6-inch
-temperature/motion sensors: now with temperature and motion sensors echo dot can trigger routines based on detected motion or changes in room temperature.
-eero wifi extender: supports eero “built-in”, works as a wifi extender for eero mesh networks, supporting up to 10 additional devices and up to 100mbps speeds.
-accelerometer/tap: now can trigger actions with a tap, like stopping alarm
-no line out: removed 3.5mm line out port from the back
-weight: now 10.7 oz, previous version was 12 oz
-appearance: now in dragon and owl designs, previous version was panda and tiger

kids version thoughts:

this kids version is just a regular echo dot 5th generation (2022), with a cool design on the fabric exterior (purple dragon or teal owl), a 2-year warranty, and an included 1-year of kids+ service. Currently kids+ service is $48/ year for prime members (or $4.99 billed monthly), so this is actually a great deal if you were going to subscribe to kids+. This seems to be the cheapest option for kids devices that include a free year of kids+. This device is only $10 more than a regular echo dot, while the kids versions of the tablets are $50 more than the regular tablet or kindle.

We personally haven’t found the kids+ service to be as useful or impressive on the dot, since you get the most out of the service when using it on a fire tablet. But keep in mind the kids+ service can be used across different devices, so if you do have fire tablets for example, you will be able to use kids+ on those too even if you just buy this dot. This could be a great option for anyone that wants to try out the service for a year.

Thoughts about echo dot 5th gen (2022) family in general:

-the speakers have been upgraded, now with more focus on low end and bass volume. I have tested out a few different types of music, and i would agree that there is noticeable improvement, but really the speaker is still too small to be very impressive. The sound is not even close to a regular echo device, let alone higher quality speakers. I appreciate the improvement here, but i still wouldn’t choose to listen to music on these on a regular basis, especially at high volume where there is a bit of distortion.

-i like the ability to be able to trigger routines based on temperature and motion, and stopping alarms by tapping is also a nice feature. These additions offer many more useful automation options, and now having multiple echo devices with temperature sensors can help identify differences in room temperature throughout the house.

-the eero wi-fi extender ability could actually be very useful for some people that need to extend the range of their network. This was easy to configure with the eero app, and it seems to be working well so far.

Overall, this is a nice little upgrade from the previous version. The speaker/sound improvement is nice, but not the biggest deal since these echo dots are still not the best choice for high volume music. The sensors and eero extender features are the biggest improvements, and these changes add so much extra functionality to an already useful smart speaker. The lack of an audio-out port is the only downgrade, but that might be important to some people.
