As you know, smart home assistants are now on a war to win their markets across the globe. In this game, Google and Amazon are fighting together to conquer their market in various countries such as India. However, Amazon Alexa has an edge over the Google Assistant, because of its open source skills and special abilities. Google Assistant is still on a development stage and it will take some pretty good time to completely develop. Therefore, Alexa enabled smart home devices are the best as of now.
If you haven’t yet tried a digital assistant enabled smart home speaker, this is a good time to purchase one. Popular e-commerce platform Newegg is now running an offer for the Amazon’s smallest Alexa enabled home speaker Echo Dot. For a limited time, you can grab a brand new Amazon Echo dot device for just $39.99. In addition to that, Newegg is offering an additional bonus of a gift card worth $10 for the purchase of Echo Dot. This is the best deal you can find for the Amazon Echo devices. So don’t waste your time and grab one right away.
The sleek and compact design makes Echo Dot a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights. Or use Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and shop for millions of Amazon products using just your voice. But it doesn’t have a woofer, only the tweeter. So that, you won’t hear much bass from this device. If you are okay with it, it is a value for money device.
Echo Dot can also connect to other speakers using a 3.5 mm stereo cable or Bluetooth to add voice control to your home stereo system. Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) support for audio streaming from your mobile device to Echo Dot or from Echo Dot to your Bluetooth speaker. Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) for voice control of connected mobile devices. Hands-free voice control is not supported for Mac OS X devices. Bluetooth speakers requiring PIN codes are not supported.
