If you've been thinking of buying an Amazon Echo Dot, today is the day to do it: the Amazon Black Friday sales have kicked off in earnest, with the retailer slashing the prices of its smart speakers and smart displays. 

Right now, you can get the 3rd-gen Amazon Echo Dot for just £22 – that's less than half price, saving you nearly £30 on the Alexa-powered smart speaker. 

This impressive little smart speaker can make calls, lets you control smart home devices, and streams music - so although it may be small, it sure packs a punch.

It's not the latest iteration of the Echo Dot though; the newest version of the little smart speaker is the Echo Dot with Clock (read our Echo Dot with Clock review), which takes the third-gen Dot and adds a built-in LED clock. 

Despite only launching it recently, Amazon has slashed the price of the Echo Dot with Clock for Black Friday, bringing the price down from £60 to a much more wallet-friendly £34.99.

Looking for an Echo device with a screen? Amazon has also discounted its smallest smart display, the Echo Show 5 (read our Echo Show 5 review). 

It features the same Alexa smart assistant as in Amazon’s other Echo devices, allowing for hands-free voice commands, so you can ask for news and weather updates, get reminders, play music, and control your smart home gadgets. 

As well as that, this nifty smart display sports a touchscreen, which lets you display your own images, watch videos from online sources, and much more.

The Echo Show 5 brings you all the smarts of Amazon's Echo speakers and Alexa voice assistant, plus you get a touchscreen, so you can see the information you want as well as hearing it - the weather, your calendar, the news, recipe videos and more. And it's reduced by almost 40% for Black Friday.View Deal

Don't have room for a smart speaker in your life? The new Amazon Echo Flex could be a good way to bring Alexa's voice assistant smarts into your home, in even the tightest spaces – simply plug it in, and ask away.
