(Pocket-lint) - Black Friday is now over, but Amazon is still slashing prices in the last of the sales days - Cyber Monday. That's seen a big discount on its very latest Amazon Echo, the 4th-gen model shaped like a ball.

The discount sees the price of the new Echo at $69.99, down from $99.99 for those in the US.

For those in the UK, Echo has dropped to £59.99 - a saving of £30! If you're in the UK, you can also add a Hue smart lightbulb for free - just click the option on Amazon.

The new Amazon Echo boosts the speakers, shifting from the 360-degree audio approach of the previous model, to a system that offers two tweeters, meaning you can get stereo separation from one speaker, so it sounds better

The new design gives a fresh new look to the Echo, while there's boosted tech inside to make this speaker better as a smart home hub.

It still has all the connected Skills of Alexa, able to control devices, play your music and answer questions - and it's now available at a cheaper price.

Amazon has also discounted the new Echo Dot too, meaning you can get a smaller Echo for a cheaper price as well.
