Amazon hasn’t even announced when Prime Day 2017 will take place, but we’re already seeing big deals on top products - like the Amazon Echo.
The flagship Amazon Alexa device is on sale for $129.99 today only. This $50 discount is the lowest price they've ever offered outside of the invite-only pre-launch sale. So if you’ve been thinking of bringing Alexa into your home, this is absolutely the best time you can take the plunge.
With Amazon Echo in your home, you can do loads of fun and helpful things, such as:
• Set timers, alarms, and reminders
• Make shopping and to-do lists
• Buy items directly through voice shopping (for Prime members only)
• Listen to music (works with Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, and more)
• Call friends with Alexa devices
• Get weather and news reports
• Listen to audiobooks
• Control hundreds of smart home devices (see the full list here)
Talking to Alexa is extremely intuitive, and she understands most basic questions and commands. So there's no need to keep a reference book of trigger phrases, but we recommend glancing through Alexa skills for new and fun additions to the library. My personal favorite is "cat facts," which is exactly what it sounds like.
Get the Amazon Echo for $129.99 right now. (Sale ends at 11:59 p.m. EST.)
