The best Amazon Echo deals for Black Friday 2018
Amazon Echo (second generation)
The current Echo is Amazon's go-to smart speaker, with an attractive fabric-clad design, good sound quality, and of course the Alexa personal assistant.
By speaking to Alexa, you can hear news headlines and the weather forecast, get answers to general knowledge questions, play games, play music, radio and podcasts, and control a huge range of smart home devices.
Amazon Echo Dot (second generation)
The second-generation Echo Dot is the cheapest way to start building an Alexa-powered smart home. This hockey puck-sized smart speaker can be connected to a larger speaker via Bluetooth or auxiliary cable for improved sound, and installing several in your home opens up new features, like multi-room audio and a house-wide intercom system.
Despite the lower price, the Echo Dot has exactly the same Alexa intelligence as any other Echo device.
Amazon Echo Dot (third generation)
The newest Echo Dot retains the compact size of its predecessor, but adds a fabric cover and improved sound quality with more bass and extra volume. As ever, the Alexa assistant is included to offer answers to your questions, play music, and control smart home devices like lights, plugs, thermostats, curtains, door locks and more.
