Amazon’s new fourth-generation Echo Dot is on sale for Black Friday, with the improved and re-designed smart speaker down to just $28.99
Amazon‘s fourth-generation Echo Dot is a refreshed edition of the popular smart speaker, and the new Alexa-equipped device is already on sale for $28.99. The speaker itself may be just a few months old, but Amazon is already making it possible for users to control their smart homes and stream content at a heavily discounted price for Black Friday.
While the latest Echo Dot is currently on sale through Amazon for $28.99, buyers can also pay $38.99 and get a fourth-generation Echo Dot with an LED display or an Echo Dot Kids Edition. While these prices are higher than the standard model, they also reflect a 35-percent discount compared to their usual prices. If opting for just the fourth-generation Echo Dot, though, users can pick from charcoal, glacier white or twilight blue trims, at the same Black Friday price.
For context, the standard fourth-generation Echo Dot normally retails for $49.99, while the LED display Dot and the Kids Edition Speaker usually run at $59.99 each. Regardless of which Echo Dot a buyer goes with, Amazon is offering a savings of at least $21 for a brand-new smart speaker. When considering all of the features packed into the Echo Dot’s petite structure, this special pricing makes for a compelling deal.
Those features include, the popular Alexa voice assistant built right in, giving users the opportunity to control their entertainment or other smart home products with their voice. The new Echo Dot also supports multi-room music streaming, allowing pairing with other Echo devices to fill a home with music. In addition, the Echo Dot also boasts a unique design, compared to the the puck-like shape of the previous three generations, resulting in a more attractive spherical device. Whether for someone already invested in the Amazon ecosystem, or for anyone interested in finally seeing what Alexa is about, this discounted fourth-generation Echo Dot is an ideal stocking filler.
