With just 13 hours left on the clock, you don’t want to be the only one missing out on this insane Prime Day deal. The 3rd-generation Amazon Echo Dot — one of the best smart speakers on the market today — has been marked down to just $19 from its original $49 price. That’s a 62% discount. This particular Amazon Echo Dot deal is one of the many Prime Day Amazon Echo deals that requires swift action, as they all expire with the end of the markdown event just before midnight tonight. With a superior speaker quality to the 2nd-gen model and convenient voice control features, Prime Day’s discount on this Amazon Echo Dot is unbeatable — that is, until the deal expires in just 13 hours.
The Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) is the perfect Smart Speaker for basic and tech-savvy listeners alike. Through slight adjustments from its parent model, the 3rd-Gen tremendously improved the speaker lineage. With a new fabric design, 1.7-inch height, and 3.9-inch diameter, the speaker looks sleek on any surface and won’t take up too much real estate. The Alexa technology is remarkably simple to set up and use. With the voice control feature, you can enjoy hands-free music and audio control, phone calls, weather forecasts, and even news updates. It’s the perfect basic and convenient Smart Speaker for a busy person in a small space.
It can also be great for busy families, too, featuring a parental control option in the Alexa app that automatically gives kid-friendly responses, filters explicit songs, blocks shopping, and lets kids call only approved contacts. Plus, for those more tech-savvy consumers, it easily connects with other smart home products, allowing for voice control over things like light dimming, thermostat adjustments, and door locks. Technologically speaking, the Echo Dot 3rd-Gen saw a significant improvement in its sound quality, with a 1.6-inch speaker far superior to the 2nd-Gen’s 1.1.-inch speaker. Although the newest 4th-Gen Echo Dot has since surpassed the 3rd-Gen in sound quality, the 1.6-inch speaker is still plenty rich, loud, and reliable on the sound quality front.
Even though the 4th-Gen technically offers the newest model of the Amazon Echo Dot, the 3rd-Gen still has plenty of the same excellent features while remaining accessible to technology users of all speeds. Plus, who would pass up so many convenient and high-tech features for only $19? But don’t forget that the clock is ticking on Prime Day, so you’ll have to buy this Smart Speaker before the deal ends in just 13 hours.
