I've had a Echo Snow 1, 2 and now 3rd generation and they seem to improve at each step while keeping the old feature compatibility that I've come to love and rely on. I use the drop-in feature with each of my machines as well as relatives and they all work flawlessly. The skills from my old machine transferred completely to the new machine once it was setup properly to the Wifi and Alexa apps. I have the new moving head version but it doesn't move very much as I think that the ambient light in the room I have it in is not that bright to activate it properly. The screen is very clear and connects to other skills like video cameras quicker than my earlier models.
