If you’ve been considering buying an Amazon Echo then now is a good time to invest.
The online retailer announced its Spring Sale last week and the deals are continuing until today with some big savings on these popular smart speakers.
Amazon’s Echo devices have become hugely popular in recent years with them offering the ability to play music, dim the lights and turn off the heating via simple voice commands.
You can also use the Alexa-powered device to set timers, check the weather and get all the latest news and sports updates.
One of the reasons for the Echo’s success is its relatively low price but things are now even more attractive due to this latest cost-cutting sale.
So, if you. are in the market for a smart speaker then here’s all you need to know about the Amazon Echo devices.

The Echo Input was announced last year with this entry-level device offering the ability to add Alexa to any speaker you may own.
Unlike the standard Echo or Echo Dot, there’s no internal speaker inside the Input which means Amazon has been able to make it incredibly slim – in fact, it’s just is just 12.5mm tall.
Echo Input connects to your speaker through a 3.5mm audio cable or Bluetooth and features a four-microphone array so you can talk to Alexa from across the room.

If you want to give an Echo a try for the first time this is well worth a look.
