    I have an invoke. If you use IFTT you can pretty much do anything you can with another device.

    I just figured out how to add brightness controls to lights ( specifically TP-Link Kasa lb130 ). It is nice not to need to wire a dimmer switch to get a dimming light nor a hub like the phillips hue. Now I use my device to play music, control lights (for example carrying a laundry basket downstairs you can turn the lights on for the whole trip by using a "scene") accept calls when working with power tools that are loud so I don't have phone nearby or hearable.

    I enabled Alexa as well, but have not used it much.

    That's great. Congratulations.
    I use mine mainly as a music speaker. However, I do use it to set reminders, set alarms, and for basic digital assistant stuff.
    It's a well built device.

    I got one from BB thinking of getting another from MS since it is only 50 now. Sound quality is decent not as good as my UE Megaboom.
