The amazon tap is a lot like the Amazon Echo, which I have reviewed on this site already, and I still like it. The Amazon Tap is like it but smaller and you have to “tap” the button on the front to have Alexia do what the Echo does. If you set this up with your Amazon account that you have the Echo on you can control everything just like you could on the Echo, you don’t have to do any other setup, it is already setup if you already have an Amazon Echo. The one thing I think is better with the Tap is that it has a better sound than the Echo. The Echo is bigger and is always plugged in and the sound is not as fantastic as I would want it to be, I enjoy hearing some good bass sounds in my music. The Tap doesn’t sound like a woofer and has awesom bass, but it does have better bass than the Echo, and for this reason I like hearing music from the tap, more than the Echo. The battery is very good on this Tap as well. We listen to the bluetooth for more than 6 hours with battery not dying on us. Instead of listening to car stereo we streamed our music from our phone so we could stream and so the Tap wouldn’t be super loud. We also had two college students that were listening to their own music, and when we dropped them off we continue to listen to the Tap until we got home. It had good sound the whole way. There are covers for the tap and we don’t have one yet, but it makes it so you can hang it or hold it better than just around the base of the tap. This item is something we are paying so much a month, but it is worth the rice and I really like the Tap.
