You might not know anyone called Alexa personally, but the name has become a world-wide phenomenon thanks to Amazon’s range of virtual assistant AI technology.
The most popular of the bunch? The Amazon Echo Dot.
The dinky voice-controlled smart speaker has had an upgrade recently, with a new speaker and design, and is perfect for any room in the house.
Asking for music, news, information or the weather is just the beginning of its capabilities, you can also call almost anyone, and control compatible smart home devices with your voice.
Plus, the gadget makes your life easier at home. You can use your voice to set timers, add items to lists, or create calendar events and reminders.
And if you were thinking that such a clever piece of tech would set you back by a small fortune, think again, because the Amazon Echo Dot is now just £19.99, down from £39.99 as part of Amazon Prime Day 2021.
That’s a whopping 50% off, or a saving of £20.

What the reviews say
“The new Echo Dot really is a huge improvement on the previous two generations. The device itself looks better for a start, sometimes the next generation of a device is a minor improvement, but on this occasion, the improvement is huge. The device is stylish, the sound quality is massively better and it has around double the volume capacity,” said one shopper.
“Excellent sound, hears me from any location in my room, understands my accent. Small but mighty,” added another.”
“I remember reading an article years ago when Amazon announced the first Echo. At the time I couldn't see how anyone could possibly want one as the available features seemed so pointless. Fast forward to today and I have an Echo of some form in nearly every room in my house (I don't think anyone will be hiring me as a futurist anytime soon...)”
“Bought one... then another, wondering when I can buy a third for our bedroom.”
“An amazing amount of power in such a small package.”
