Ready to jump on the smart home bandwagon and sing along to your favourite Christmas tunes in style? The Alexa-powered Amazon Echo Dot will have you in a festive mood in no time – especially as its currently available on deal.
This is great news for those ready to delve into the smart home way of life, as Amazon has price-slashed the Echo Dot back to its Black Friday price of only £34.99. This is a fantastic £15 reduction from its already reasonable £49.99 RRP.
The Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled smart speaker that makes managing your day to day life easy, with the help of Alexa, a digital assistant. It would make a fantastic Christmas present for any tech-enthusiast.
You can ask Alexa to play music, control your supported smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms and much more – seriously sci-fi stuff.
You can even make phone calls, order a Domino’s pizza, or arrange an Uber pick-up, all simply by using Alexa’s voice recognition system.
Seven microphones allow for far-field hands-free voice control, and a built-in speaker lets Alexa talk back to you. If you have speakers already, you can even connect them to the Echo Dot using a 3.5mm audio cable for better quality sound.
We gave the Amazon Echo Dot a well-deserved 4.5/5 score, praising the smart speaker’s small size, great value for money, and impressive Alexa functionality.
Our verdict reads: “The Echo Dot is simply a better device than the original Echo. It does everything its big brother does, but offers greater versatility and it costs a third of the price. If you’re after a voice assistant to take control of your home, or even if you’re just curious to take a peek at the future of home automation, this is a no-brainer.”
Trusted Reviews concluded: “A potent smart home assistant, now better and cheaper too.” We advise you buy while the price is low, and make someone’s Christmas that bit more special!
