Echo Dot Powered by Amazon

Echo Dot is very good hardware and speaker. However very much handicapped by amazon on the software front. It can not understand your commands 70-80 percentage times and very limited to amazon music and saavn. However, you can not use any good music apps like wynk, gaana, youtube, etc.
Also, natural language processing is supported in google products but not in this echo.
For example when you say-
1) where is agra - it gives you the correct answer.
2) continue with the next query like how to reach there?
Then for 2nd query, it doesn't know what to do.
This is just an example but most of the times you will find this issue there.

Then you can not connect with other popular music etc apps. Have to rely on what amazon thinks os good for you.
Amazon music has very limited music base.

So looking forward to getting more access and integration with Alexa however not have much hope since its already such an old platform that they would have given support if there were any such plans.
