What? You don’t own a smart speaker yet? The category remains hot as Amazon continues to add more capabilities to virtual assistant Alexa. You can find out the weather, sports scores and stock prices just by asking for them. Without tapping a button, you can turn on or off smart appliances, make a phone call, send a text, order a Lyft, set timers and alarms, and order a pizza.
And right now, you can purchase the Amazon Dot (2nd generation) for $39.99. That is a $10 or 20% savings from the usual price of $49.99. So if you don’t own a smart speaker, or can use a second one for another room, this is a propitious time for you to buy the Dot. If you already own an Amazon Echo, Alexa will respond to the unit you’re closest to using something Amazon calls Echo Spatial Perception.
If you’re not familiar with the Amazon Echo Dot, it looks like an over-sized hockey puck, and is available in black or white. Want to take the plunge, or add more Echo smart speakers to additional rooms in your home? Simply click on the sourcelink below.
