Amazon’s Echo Dot was a complete game-changer, giving people access to Alexa without having to spend $180 on an Echo. These days, however, the Echo Dot’s $50 price tag is still high compared to some other options out there. A perfect example is the Eufy Genie, which costs less than $30 and yet still packs nearly all the same features as Amazon’s Echo Dot. Definitely check one out if you’re in the market for a low-cost Alexa speaker.
