Amazon was offering some seriously deep discounts on its various Alexa speakers leading up to the holidays, and one of the most popular models out there was the second-generation Amazon Echo Dot. This sleek little speaker packs all of the power of Amazon Alexa into a pint-sized package that can be placed out of sight in any (or every) room in your house. Christmas inventory of the Echo Dot sold out well ahead of the holidays this year, but don’t worry if you missed out because it’s finally back in stock and available to ship immediately.
Some highlights from the product page:
- Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms, and more
- Connects to speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn
- Controls lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others
- Hears you from across the room with 7 far-field microphones for hands-free control, even in noisy environments or while playing music
- Includes a built-in speaker so it can work on its own as a smart alarm clock in the bedroom, an assistant in the kitchen, or anywhere you might want a voice-controlled computer
