The Echo Dot is a compact smart speaker with a 9cm diameter and 1.73-inch front-firing speaker for streaming music, listening to podcasts, answering queries and more. 

The biggest differentiator between an Echo device and a standard speaker is the integration with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant. Alexa can do everything from answering questions and reading you the weather forecast to setting timers and offering hands-free smart home control. 

You can also connect your phone to the speaker via Bluetooth and stream your favourite playlists through popular apps like Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer. According to Amazon, the 2022 model is the best-sounding Echo Dot yet and we’re inclined to agree. We found that the speaker offered much more bass than its predecessor, along with better-balanced performance in general. 

You can even use the Echo Dot (5th generation) as a Wi-Fi extender using compatible Echo and Eero devices.

We awarded the 5th gen Echo Dot 4.5 out of 5 stars in our review. Home technology editor David Ludlow wrote: 

“An audio upgrade on the previous model, the Amazon Echo Dot (5th generation) is now a capable music speaker, as well as a great smart speaker for smart home control and general enquiries. Overall, this is the best value smart speaker you can buy, although owners of the previous generation will struggle to justify the upgrade”. 

Of course, this review was published when the Echo Dot cost £54.99. That value is even better with this deal, with the current £21.99 price making this the ideal time to upgrade to the 2022 model. 

Head to Argos today to save 60% on the Amazon Echo Dot (5th generation) and bag the Alexa-powered smart speaker for just £21.99 while this deal lasts.
