Today, you can save $10 on the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) and pick one up for just $39.99. Now that's not quite an all-time low price on the Echo Dot, but it is pretty close.
The Echo Dot is a small, hockey puck-shaped smart speaker from Amazon. Which has Amazon Alexa baked inside. This is going to allow you to ask Alexa all sorts of questions, as well as getting your daily news briefing, controlling your smart home products and so much more.
Alexa has tens of thousands of skills available, and there are many more coming out each and every day.
On top of that, the Echo Dot is also going to allow you to play music, since it is a smart speaker. You can ask Alexa to play music on Amazon Music Unlimited (which is currently offering a 3-month free trial!), or Spotify, Apple Music, TuneIn Radio, or a number of other sources. Now if your favorite music service is not supported by Alexa, you can still stream over Bluetooth.
This makes a really great device to put into every room of the house. Especially if you are already using Alexa. Picking up a couple more Echo Dot smart speakers is definitely a good idea.
Now this is a listening device, though it is supposed to only be listening when you say "Alexa" and not all the time. But there is a way to turn off the microphone when you don't want it to be listening. And considering how many commercials and ads now say "Alexa" and then give a command, that might be a good idea to keep the microphone off, so you don't get a lot of false positives.
