Best Amazon Echo Dot Black Friday deals: Up to 63% off
Amazon unveiled a completely revamped lineup of Echo devices earlier this year in September. As part of the new lineup, the company introduced three variants of its most affordable smart speaker — the regular Echo Dot 4th-Gen, the 4th-Gen Echo Dot with Clock, and the Echo Dot Kids Edition. Although it hasn’t been long since the new Echo Dot lineup hit the shelves, you can now get them for cheap during Amazon’s Black Friday sale. Check out all the deals below!
Echo Dot 4th Gen
The Amazon Echo Dot 4th Gen features a completely new spherical design, with a fabric finish on the top half like the premium Echo smart speaker. The speaker packs in a 1.6-inch driver for crisp audio output and an LED ring at the bottom to indicate when Alexa is listening to you. It has four touch-sensitive buttons at the top that will let you control music playback, change the volume, and mute the microphone.
It’s a great smart speaker for those who are just getting into the smart home game. And since it’s available for just $29 right now, you can get two at the same time and place them around your house for maximum coverage. In case you do pick up two, you can also pair them together to use them as a stereo pair for an even better listening experience.
Echo Dot 4th Gen with Clock
The 4th-Gen Echo Dot with Clock is exactly what it sounds like. It’s an Echo Dot with a simple LED display that shows basic information like the time, temperature, timers, and alarm. Other than the LED display, it features the same hardware and design as the regular Echo Dot. If you think the LED display is a worthwhile addition for an extra $10, then the Echo Dot with Clock is honestly not a bad deal at $39.
Echo Dot 4th Gen Kids Edition
If you have young kids in the house and don’t want to give them complete access to a smart speaker, you should get the 4th-Gen Echo Dot Kids Edition. It’s essentially the same as the regular Echo Dot, but it comes with colorful Tiger and Panda prints on the fabric material.
The latest Echo Dot Kids Edition is a great entry-level smart speaker designed for kids. It features kid-friendly Panda and Tiger prints, and it comes with a customized Alexa experience that's designed to deliver age-appropriate results to children.
Although it features the same hardware specifications as the other two speakers, it features a customized Alexa experience that’s better suited to kids. The custom-built kids experience will allow children to ask Alexa questions, set animal sound alarms, get help with homework, and call pre-approved contacts.
For parents, it offers an extensive list of parental controls and the ability to create voice profiles for kids, which ensures that they get age-appropriate results. The Echo Dot Kids Edition usually retails for $60 on Amazon, but it’s currently available at a $21 discount for just $39.
Echo Dot 3rd Gen with Amazon Smart Plug
If you’re not too keen on getting the latest Echo Dot devices, Amazon is also offering an enticing discount on the 3rd-Gen Echo Dot. During the platform’s Black Friday sale, you can get your hands on a 3rd-Gen Echo Dot with Amazon Smart Plug bundle for just $24, that’s over 60% off on its regular sale price of $65.
The Amazon Echo Dot lineup is a great starting point for anyone looking to set up a smart home. But since a smart speaker is just the first step in the process of making a smart home ecosystem, these discounts can help you save up for some other smart home products that you may want to buy in the near future.
