Answer:
The echo dot gen 2 has an external battery option but the gen 3 DOES NOT which is highly disappointing. I bought several as gifts and I know both of them would have liked to have that option for travel. :/

Meaning you can go into the IFTTT App (or website) and select various preset Applets (or blocks of pre-written code or customize your own), and setup various ‘routines’ just like in Google Home/Google Assistant. For Example: You could set up an applet that when run, will add a song playing on an Amazon or Google smart device to your preselected song playlist. Also, if You run into a smart device that is incompatbile with one or the other of those Apps, there is an App called ‘Pushover’ that supposedly can help bridge that tech gap, and help you set it up and get it done.
Good Luck! I hope that this helped you & others! see less
