Prime Day 2017 is officially underway… and holy moly is Amazon starting things off with a bang! For the first time ever, Amazon has slashed the price of the insanely popular Amazon Echo smart speaker to just $89.99. That’s right, a brand new Echo can be had right now for a penny under $90. This price is completely unheard of for the best Alexa smart speaker on the planet, and it represents a whopping $90 discount below the Echo’s typical selling price. We honestly have no idea if or when we’ll ever see the Echo drop this low again, so do yourself a favor and grab one (or several) while you can.
Here are some key details from the Amazon product page:
- Plays all your music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more using just your voice
- Introducing Alexa calling and messaging, a new way to be together with family and friends. Just ask Alexa to call or message anyone with an Echo, Echo Dot, or the Alexa App.
- Fills the room with immersive, 360º omni-directional audio
- Hears you from across the room with far-field voice recognition, even while music is playing
- Answers questions, reads the news, reports traffic and weather, reads audiobooks from Audible, gives info on local businesses, provides sports scores and schedules, and more using the Alexa Voice Service
- Controls lights, fans, switches, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, locks, and more with compatible connected devices from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, ecobee, and others
