Alexa will tell you a story, chat about most topics, or share a joke. Add Alexa Skills for specific tasks or to control compatible smart home devices. Before you know it, you may join the ranks of multi-Dot owners for the convenience and entertainment if nothing else.

Normally priced at $50, the Echo Dot is just $30 during the Labor Day sale. If you want to see what the ruckus is all about with smart homes or your kids have asked to have Alexa in their own rooms, this is an opportunity to score good prices on the powerful device.
