Amazon Alexa is a pretty useful personal assistant, and it was actually something that Amazon stumbled on by accident. It was originally meant to be used in its Fire Phone and Fire Tablet lineup as a replacement for Google Now or Siri, since those ran Android but not Google's Android – a forked version of Android. But Amazon decided to put it in a speaker (the Echo), and the rest is history. Alexa quickly became one of the more popular personal assistants out there and became a hub for controlling your smart home products, now, you can find all sorts of things with Alexa inside. Whether it's a speaker, a set-top box, a thermostat or even a refrigerator. But we decided to stick with speakers, so we've rounded up the top 10 best speakers with Amazon Alexa inside.
One of our favorites on this list is definitely the Sonos One. Particularly because it is such a good speaker with great sound quality, and then you get Alexa thrown in on top of that. That makes this is a good option, and it's really not that expensive at $199. With the Sonos One, you can stream music over WiFi and talk to Alexa, by asking her questions, asking her to turn off the lights in your home and so much more. Another favorite is the Ultimate Ears BLAST. This is a favorite for two reasons. One being the fact that it is waterproof and the other is the fact that it is portable. So you can literally take Alexa anywhere you want.
Now, we also added in the Fire TV Cube with this list, and that's because it includes hands free Alexa, something a bit different. It's a pretty interesting product that Amazon just launched, and is a pretty cool option for most people. All of the Alexa speakers listed below are pretty good options for anyone looking to get into the world of Alexa. There are options that are as low as $30 and some that are much more.
