THE AMAZON Echo Smart Speaker has gone on sale with the price reduced by more than 50%.
Amazon kicked off Prime Day early with summer deals on select products – find out how you can take advantage of the discounts.
The 4th generation Echo smart speaker has been reduced from $49.99 to just $19.99.
The smart speaker is manufactured by Amazon and comes pre-programmed with Alexa.
Only Amazon Prime members can take part in this big discount, which takes place just before Prime Day on July 12th.
The Verge reported that Prime Day sales mean products from Amazon will likely fetch their best price excluding Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The smart speaker market is full of competing products like Google Nest, Sonos One and Siri, the digital assistant for everyone.
However, reporters from CNET ranked the Echo Gen 4 as the best smart speaker of 2022, and the 500,000 reviews on Amazon give the device an average of 4.7/5 stars.
Amazon’s smart speaker products are designed to fit into homes and offices – multiple Echo units can be synced together to give your home a working PA system.
Satisfied customers are praising the gadget’s ability to transform the home with commands that control lights, thermostats and more – but there are widespread concerns that Amazon could be eavesdropping on conversations.
