This morning, Amazon has knocked each of its Echo speakers down to Black Friday pricing, matching some of the best prices we’ve seen this year on each model. Today’s deal may be your last chance to bring Alexa home at a discounted price before Christmas. Free shipping is available for Prime members or in orders of $49+. Here’s a look at the entire lineup:
Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service brings a number of unique features to the table, including the ability to “play music, control your smart home, get information, news, weather, and more using just your voice.” I picked up an Echo over Black Friday and have implemented into my smart home setup. Being able to adjust my thermostat or even control my home theater with my voice has made this a worthwhile investment. Learn more in our full review or hit up the official Alexa guide. This is the #1 best selling home automation product at Amazon with a 4.4/5 star rating from over 45,000 reviewers.
Alexa provides voice control for Amazon Music—just ask for your favorite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. You can also search for music by lyrics, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for you. Listen to any song with Amazon Music Unlimited. Skills add even more capabilities like ordering a pizza from Domino’s, requesting a ride from Uber, tracking your fitness with Fitbit, ordering flowers from 1-800-Flowers, and more. Enabling skills lets Alexa do even more—simply discover and enable the ones you want to use in the Alexa App.
