In its initial days, Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa was not available on many devices. It was mostly used on the company’s bulky Echo device which was and still is one of the great wireless speakers available. The company then shrank the size of the speaker and came out with a more compact device called the Echo Dot. It’s just as great as the original Echo in terms of features, but the size is significantly smaller.
The Amazon Echo Dot is equipped with Alexa letting you perform all the tasks you’ve been doing with it on your other devices. You can play music from various sources including but not limited to Amazon Music, Spotify, and Apple Music. You can also ask it questions, and it’ll answer them for you. If you already have other Alexa-enabled devices in your home, you can control them as well with your voice using this little gadget.
One of the main reasons why you would want to purchase this over any other speakers is its compact size. It fits just about anywhere and provides equally great features as its bulky alternatives. If you want to grab it right now, go ahead and check out Amazon’s deal for it. The device’s price has actually been reduced by 50%. Normally selling for $49.99, this deal lets you buy it for just $24.99. It means you can actually buy two units of the device for the price of one.
