FWIW, I unplugged 2 Echo Dots in 2020 when, after neither myself or my wife had done any searches online of a specific and unusual topic and that we had discussed that topic verbally only between ourselves......shortly after (like by the next day) when I opened amazon to browse my account / order status page, I received popup suggestions that clearly suggested items that my wife and I discussed privately!Well, I will be the odd ball here. We enjoy it quite a lot.
At least you were not QVC that when selling the Echo on TV, they said Hey Alexa "order a pizza from Dominos" And then people who were watching the presentation started to see pizzas show up at their home. QVC had to reimburse them...too funny.Only time that I've ever used it to shop was when they first came out and they had some great deals if ordered through it. Overall kind of a frustrating experience unless you just want to say "Hey Alexa, order toilet paper" and let it do whatever that gets you. Too much back and forth to get things right and easier to just do online.
