With integrated wireless connectivity, voice recognition, and home automation support, the Amazon Tap isn’t your typical portable wireless speaker. Equipped with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a microphone, the Tap connects to your home or office’s wireless network and allows you to intuitively play music, check the weather and traffic anywhere in the US, hear sports scores, and more. Using voice recognition technology, the built-in microphone allows the Echo to recognize your voice from any direction in the room, even while music is playing. Thanks to its 360° omni-directional design, the speaker emits sound in all directions.
