Personal assistants have come a long way since Siri first launched in 2011. There’s a growing number of competitors in the field, voice recognition has improved significantly, and the sheer number of tasks that these assistants can handle is incredible. And thanks to today’s sale on the Amazon Echo, you won’t have to spend much to jump in.
With a built-in omni-directional mic, you can place the Echo anywhere in your room of choice, and it’ll still pick up your voice with surprising clarity. No need to yell — just say your commands in a normal speaking voice, and you’ll be fine in most environments.
You can ask questions, interact with your smart home devices (like WeMo or Phillips Hue), play back your favorite tunes on Spotify, and even order a pizza with just your voice. And when you install the Alexa app on your phone or tablet, setting it all up is a snap.
If the Amazon Echo interests you, don’t hesitate. Regardless of whether you have a Prime membership, the shipping is free. This sale won’t last long though, so act fast.
