Amazon is also discounting the second generation Echo today, as part of its early Prime Day deals. This is currently sitting at half price, which is the lowest price that the Echo has ever been. Making this a really great deal for those looking to pick one up.
The Echo is a slightly larger smart speaker, offering up better sound than the Echo Dot of course. It is also tuned by Dolby, so you're going to get some pretty deep bass as well as some crisp and clear mids and highs.
Of course, Alexa is included in the Echo. Allowing you to control your smart home with your voice. Like your Philips Hue bulbs, your Roomba and much more. It can also provide you with the weather conditions, traffic conditions and even tell you what's going on in the world with your flash briefing. Alexa has over ten thousand skills, with more coming virtually every day. Adding more and more functionality to the Echo, so that it is never going to be "old".
You can pick up the Echo from Amazon right now using the link below. As is the case with most of these deals, you do need Prime for this price. So if you don't have Prime, you'll want to sign up for this 30-day free trial.Amazon Echo - Amazon - $49
