If you were hoping to score a discount on an Echo device for Cyber Week, the good news is that you still have time to take advantage of the Amazon Cyber Week deals. The fourth-generation Echo Dot, which was released in September, is already part of the annual sale with a $20 discount, bringing the smart speaker’s price down to $30 from its original price of $50.
Digital Trends’ best smart speakers for 2020 tags this version of the fourth-generation Echo Dot with a clock as the year’s best cheap smart speaker. The version on sale eschews the time display in order to offer the device at an even lower price, which is brought down even further by Amazon’s $20 discount. If you want to enjoy the immense value that this smart speaker brings to your home over the holidays, you should click that Buy Now button as soon as you can.
For the fourth-generation Echo Dot, Amazon replaces the puck design with an attention-grabbing spherical shape, but not at the expense of audio quality. The sound produced by the device, through a 1.6-inch front-firing speaker that delivers crisp highs and a full-sounding bass, is impressive for its size.
The Echo Dot still delivers the conveniences provided by Amazon’s Alexa. The digital assistant is capable of acting on voice commands for a variety of functions, including playing songs from a range of streaming services, answering questions, and controlling connected smart home devices, among many other features. The Echo Dot also offers Alexa Guard, which can send you mobile alerts if it detects noise such as a smoke alarm or breaking glass if you let Alexa know that you’ll be leaving the house.
There’s no problem if you want to take a look at other Cyber Week Amazon Echo deals, to make sure that you’re buying the right model. However, it will be hard to find another offer that provides better value than Amazon’s $20 discount on the fourth-generation Echo Dot, which lowers the smart speaker’s price to $30 from its original price of $50.
If you’re not sold that the latest version of the Echo Dot is the perfect addition to your home, we’ve gathered the best Amazon Echo offers that are still available as part of this year’s Cyber Week deals to help you with your decision on which smart speaker to buy.
