If you're looking for a low-cost Alexa speaker, it really doesn't get better than the new Dot—especially given it's on mega sale for Prime Day. Our former smart home editor Sarah Kovac tested the revamped Echo Dot and loved the new orb-like design and sleek aesthetic. She points out that it's got "surprisingly good sound for the size" for a speaker that's roughly the size of a baseball.

With the Echo Dot, you can pump the jams from Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music and more. This pint-sized smart speaker lets set reminders, gives you the latest headlines, manages your Alexa smart home and makes phone calls to friends and family. It's available in three colors: charcoal, glacier white, and twilight blue.

There are several versions of the Echo Dot (fourth-gen). Currently, you can also save $25 on the Echo Dot with Clock (fourth-gen) and the Echo Dot Kids' Edition (fourth-gen), a version that comes with a one-year subscription to Kids+ that gives them access to thousands of hours of children's Audible books, interactive games, and educational skills—both of which are marked down from $60 to $34.99 for Prime Day.
