This is my first time purchasing an Echo Alexa of my own. I’ve used an Alexa 2nd Gen at my job and it’s pretty nice. I noticed the difference between the 2nd and 3rd Gen is that the 3rd Gen speaker is way louder and clear and I like that. I’m still playing with it and getting used to it but I do LOVE the Twilight Blue. That’s a sexy color to be honest lol. So far, I’m impressed with it.
