The Echo Dot has now been replaced by the new 4th generation version, so the reduction is just about the cheapest that we've seen this speaker. It's a great opportunity to add an Echo to another room in your house without spending a lot of cash.

The Echo Dot is one of the most compact and cheapest ways to bring a complete Alexa device to a room in your house. And you'll get access to over 60 million ad-free songs to play on it - you can stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, TuneIn and others as well as listen to audiobooks from Audible.

You can also pair it with a second Echo Dot for stereo sound.

Of course, there is full Alexa compatibility with all its capabilities and skills including smart home control, answering questions, connecting to a compatible Fire TV device for hands-free control and much more.
