Amazon Echo Black Friday Deal Marks 2nd Birthday
 

The Amazon Echo is on sale for $140.39 for a limited time to celebrate the device's 2nd birthday.

This is just funny. The Google Home digital assistant device just went on sale last week. Today Amazon rubs Google's face into the fact that it took the search giant two years to come up with an Echo competitor. To celebrate the Amazon Echo's 2nd birthday, Amazon cuts the price of the Amazon Echo from $179.99 to $140.39 starting today on amazon.com.

Update: The Amazon Echo Deal was only available for 24 hours on November 7. We expect Amazon to offer another Amazon Echo Black Friday deal later this month.

This deal on the Echo saves 22% over the regular price and applies for the black and the white Echo device. This might well be the best Amazon Echo Black Friday 2016 deal we will see. There is the chance that Amazon is cutting the Echo price even further to match the Google Home $129 price-tag in the Amazon Black Friday 2016 sales week.

The Amazon Echo sold for $149 on Prime Day earlier this year and in the Black Friday sale last year. The $140.38 price is the lowest the Amazon Echo was ever sold for. Find the Amazon Echo deal on Amazon.com. It is not clear yet how long Amazon will offer this lowest price on the Echo. It could be just 24 hours.

Amazon Prime members can use their voice to order anything on Amazon.com just by asking Alexa on their Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV, or Fire tablet. Amazon will even have hundreds of exclusive Black Friday 2016 deals just for Echo owners this holiday season listed at www.amazon.com/alexadeals. You can have Alexa tell you her deals by just asking: "Alexa, what are your deals?" Getting an Echo now before the Amazon Black Friday Deals Week makes double sense.

The Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more.

Echo has seven microphones and beam forming technology so it can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with 360° immersive sound. When you want to use Echo, just say the wake word "Alexa" and Echo responds instantly. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception). 

Amazon Echo provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music, just ask for your favorite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. You can also search for music by lyrics, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for you. Listen to any song with Amazon Music Unlimited.

The Amazon Echo also provides hands-free voice control to Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn. Plus, Echo is Bluetooth-enabled so you can stream other popular music services like iTunes from your phone or tablet. Echo has been fine-tuned to deliver crisp vocals with dynamic bass response. Its dual downward-firing speakers produce 360° omni-directional audio to fill any room with immersive sound.

Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. With far-field voice recognition, Echo can hear you ask a question from any direction—even while playing music. When you want to use Echo, simply say the wake word, "Alexa," and Echo lights up and streams audio to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service is leveraged to recognize and respond to your request instantly.
