Amazon slashes price of NEW Echo Dot Alexa speaker to £24.99 from £50 – 10 days before Prime Day sales



AMAZON has slashed the price of its cheapest Alexa speaker by 50% – nearly two weeks before the Prime Day sales begin.
It means you can bag an Amazon Echo Dot for £24.99, rather than the usual £50 price tag.

Better still, it’s the third-generation Echo Dot, which is the latest and most advanced model.
It has improved audio, better voice pick-up and a more attractive design than older models.
This is also the cheapest price we’ve ever seen the third-generation Echo Dot sold for.
The only time this price was matched was during Black Friday sales last year.

The Echo works using far-field microphones that pick up your voice from anywhere in a room.
All you need to do is say the wake word (Alexa), and she’ll start listening to your speech.
Ask a question and she’ll use Amazon’s computing heft to work out an answer for you.
She can play music or radio, make phone calls, and even read your Kindle books or audiobooks out loud.
Better still, she can connect to third-party services too.
So you can use the official Domino’s skill to place pizza orders just with your voice.

What is Alexa?If you’ve never heard of Alexa, here’s what you need to know…

Alexa is an “intelligent” personal assistant built by Amazon.
You can find her on several different devices, including Amazon’s Echo speakers.
Alexa responds to voice commands, and can talk back to you.
She can perform thousands of different tasks, including telling you about the news or weather.
But she can do more complex things too, like ordering a pizza or arranging an Uber taxi pick-up.
To activate Alexa, you need to say “Alexa” to an Amazon Echo speaker.
Alexa currently only works in English and German languages.
Because she’s powered by artificial intelligence, Alexa is constantly getting smarter.
Alexa will also get more used to your voice, and better understand what you want her to do over time.

She’ll also work with a host of other smart home gadgets.
If you have a connected Dyson fan, for instance, Alexa will be able to control how it remotely.
And if you own smart lightbulbs – like Philips Hue or Hive Active Lights – you can use Alexa to turn the lights on and off.
Alexa also comes with a healthy roster of built-in games, so you can play trivia quizzes with her when you’re bored.
If you get multiple Echos, you’ll be able to play music all around your home in sync – all thanks to the Alexa app.
