Amazon is currently offering a wonderful deal on its current-edition Echo Dot smart speaker hardware. For what is likely to be a limited period of time, consumers are able to pick up two third-generation Echo Dots for just $59.98.

The discount above is going to save you an immediate $40. Considering the general retail price of the product is $49.99 it almost means that you are going to be getting a nearly free-of-charge Echo. And that is a deal that I am sure we can all get behind.

Most people will generally understand what Amazon’s Echo hardware is but it is definitely worth considering for those individuals who have been living under a smart home rock for the last 12 months or so. Basically, what you are going to get is one of Amazon’s latest portable speakers which comes with the Alexa digital assistant built-in. That means, in addition to being able to play music and take music into any home, you are also capable of controlling other hardware and posing all of life’s important questions.

From a music perspective, you are going to be able to stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, as well as an array of others, and it even comes with an improved speaker and audio experience over previous models of the hardware. The underlying audio assistant, Alexa, is always getting smarter and adding new skills like tracking fitness, playing games, and more. In short, if there is something that you want to do with the hardware then there should be an Alexa Skill for it.

One of the great things about this type of hardware – and a definite benefit of this deal – is that you can actually chain these Echo Dots together to form a whole home audio experience which will let you stream music across multiple devices. For those who know about Echo Dot, this is definitely Amazon’s best attempt at getting this hardware as good as it can be and it shows in the performance and overall visuals.
