Black Friday 2018: Best deals on Amazon echo dot, echo spot, echo plus and more
When you’re living in a house where the kitchen fridge, bedroom lamp and living room TV can have a conversation with each other, you know you’re one of the millions of people using smart home devices each day.
In fact, 47 per cent of millennials already own some smart home devices, and, of those who own one, 70 per cent are planning to buy another. They are starting to become part of the furniture, an assistant in our daily lives and an irreplaceable bridge between technology and people.
One of the bestselling ranges of smart home devices is the Amazon Echo, which has made its way into over 8 million homes.
It was first available two years ago in the UK and has since become a popular household essential ever since. More than just a smart speaker, it is connected to Alexa – Amazon’s voice-controlled personal assistant service that is akin to the iPhone’s Siri (perhaps even better).
The Echo range has grown alongside the popularity of its core products, the Echo and the Echo Plus. Now, add-on products include bass boosting speakers, touchscreen tablets, stripped-back versions of the classic model and much more.
With each Echo product’s variety of abilities comes a difference in the price tag, but they typically range from £24.99-£219.99. Here is everything you need to know about Amazon Echo devices and some models are even on sale now in the lead up to Black Friday 2018
Now in its second iteration, the Echo is sleeker and stronger than before thanks to two bass-boosting Dolby-tuned audio drivers and six stylish fabric and wood shells. This is an essential piece of kit that allows you to connect to other products in the Echo range.
Alone, it’s a nifty smart speaker that can fill a room with music, make phone calls, set reminders, send messages to other Echo devices and use Alexa Skills (an app that lets you do everything from ordering a pizza to booking an Uber). It is really popular, so we have no doubt that you’ll be able to get a good deal on one this Black Friday.
