Simple to set up, looks and sounds great!
April 6, 2018
I wanted a smart speaker that could control my smart devices, was not too big and had great sound. The 808 XL-V seemed to fit all my needs (and has Alexa), so I decided to give it a shot.
Getting the speaker set up was a breeze. I just needed to download the free 808 app, plug in the speaker, then follow the step by step instructions from the app to connect the speaker to my home wifi. Once it was added to my home network, the speaker was ready to use. I checked my Alexa app, and the 808 XL-V automatically showed up as one of my registered devices.
The speaker looks and sounds great, and the sound fills the room I have it in. The 808 app is nice as it links your stored music so you can start playing your music from within the app instead of opening a new app, plus you have access to other music services like iheart radio and Napster in the 808 app.
The big plus is it works seamlessly as an Alexa device. I can lock my front door, turn on/off lights, and even control my Ecobee thermostat without needing to get up from my desk or picking up my phone. It also accesses my music stored on the Amazon Cloud.
Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.
