New Amazon Echo Dot Second Generation Kills

Amazon just surprised with new Echo Dot with killer price.

Amazon wants you to have lots of Amazon Echo Dot devices in your home. The second generation of Echo Dot has been announced and it is only $49.99, which is down from $89.99. On top of that Amazon is offering discounts on multi-packs. With an Echo Dot Six-Pack you buy five Echo Dots and get one free when using the code DOT6PACK at checkout. There is even a 12-pack where you buy 10 and get two free. Use DOT12PACK to get that deal at checkout.

The Amazon 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.

“With the same high-quality array of seven microphones found in Echo, the all-new Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even when it’s noisy or music is playing,” said Jeff Bezos, Founder and CEO. “And, at under $50, it is easier than ever to add Echo and Alexa to any or every room in your home.” 

The Echo Dot 2 is another perfect gadget from Amazon. The online retailer has become a huge force in consumer electronics. With Alexa and the Echo series, Amazon took the lead in voice assistant solutions. The Echo Dot 2 makes having a smart voice assistant in every room of your house very affordably.

Owners of multiple Echo Dots also get an additional technological benefit. For customers who have multiple Echo devices within hearing distance, Amazon’s new ESP technology intelligently calculates the clarity of the customer’s voice and determines which Echo is best to respond to the request instantly. This feature is gets better over time, so ESP will continuously improve as you use Echo. In multi-Echo households, ESP resolves the problem of two Echo devices answering you at the same time. This new feature will be available as a free update for all Echo devices, including Amazon Echo and the first generation Echo Dot, starting in the coming weeks. 

The new Echo Dot comes in black and in white and will start shipping on October 20.
