Amazon's second generation Echo Dot is available today for just £34.99, matching one of the best prices we've ever seen for the device. The Dot regularly sells for £49.99, making this offer a great opportunity to get into the Echo ecosystem or add Alexa to more rooms in your house.

Most will already be familiar with Amazon's Echo line of products that add smart assistant functionality to rooms in your home. The hands-free, voice-controlled Dot is Amazon's entry-level Echo, offering the ability to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, answer queries, read the news, set alarms or timers, among other things.
