The Amazon Echo is now at its lowest price since Black Friday, and the second lowest price its ever been sold at.

Amazon has knocked £20 off the price of its Amazon Echo speaker, bringing the price down from £149.99 to just £129.99 – perfect for anyone on the hunt for a last-minute Christmas gift.

For the unfamiliar, the Echo is Amazon’s first – and flagship – smart speaker, which comes with the built-in Alexa digital assistant. Using your voice, you can command Alexa to do things, like order you an Uber, arrange a delivery via Just Eat, read you the news, and plenty more too.

And the Echo is also a speaker, so it can play music over Wi-Fi just like a Sonos system.

In our review, we gave the Amazon Echo a 4/5 score, praising its attractive design, easy setup, versatile roster of ‘Skills’, and impressive (and ever-improving) voice recognition.

Here’s our verdict:

“Alexa isn’t quite Jarvis from Iron Man yet, but I have no doubt that she’s on the way there. The original iPhone changed how we interact with technology, allowing us to control devices with apps via a screen and clean UI< and now Alexa promises to do the same for devices with Wi-Fi – but this time using voice."

On Amazon, the Amazon Echo has a 4.1/5 score based on 2,985 user reviews. Users wrote:

“I purchased this for my father in law who is blind and it has given him a great way of accessing the internet and listening to music. He loves a quiz and he enjoys the quiz skills I have enabled on his Echo.”

“Love this, and for the money I will be placing more Echos in other rooms.”

“The best present I have had for ages, I love it. This device is way cooler than I thought it would be. It tells you the weather, plays music, and I even ordered a takeaway on it the other night. If you are thinking of getting one of these as a Christmas gift do it, they are great."

All in all, this is a great deal. The only time the Echo has ever been cheaper was on the week of Black Friday, when it was down to a very friendly £119.99. But this is still a cracking bargain on an increasingly impressive bit of kit.
