(Pocket-lint) - There are some great deals to be had on Amazon devices, in Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales. One of those is on the latest 4th generation Echo Dot - now with up to a 42 per cent discount.

The Echo Dot was updated in 2020 and this isn't the first time that it's been this price - but this is the lowest you can expect to find it.

Get over 40% off the Amazon Echo Dot

The Echo Dot is Amazon's most popular smart speaker with Alexa, especially since it has been reinvented in a ball shape with better sound and the light ring at the bottom. It's certainly aesthetically more pleasing than its predecessor. 

All the capabilities of Alexa are on board, such as support for Skills as well as smart home control and compatibility with all the major music services. Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and Deezer are each supported, in addition to radio from TuneIn and podcasts and audiobooks from various providers. In our review, we say the Dot is more like a mini version of the full-size Echo than ever and - thanks to new internals - sounds and works better than ever, too.

It's a much better standalone speaker for music these days, while it's easier to set up than ever with the help of the Alexa app.

For those after the Echo Dot with Clock - that model also has a big Black Friday discount - reduced by 35 per cent.
