Alexa fans, the day you’ve been waiting for has officially arrived — Amazon’s second-generation Echo Dot has been released.

What’s more, Amazon is still offering a killer deal that gets you a free sixth Echo Dot speaker when you order five. If you’re planning on packing your home with Dots so you have hands-free access to Alexa wherever you go, this is the deal for you. Just used the coupon code DOT6PACK at checkout.
