Best Amazon Echo deals for Black Friday 2018

When Amazon released its smart speaker, Echo, over a year ago, we were excited to meet Alexa, Amazon very own Siri, but also how the speaker would develop. Fast forward to now and it's gone and spawned a large and growing family of devices.

These are the best current prices on the whole line, from the ultra-cheap smart home hockey puck that is the Echo Dot to the 'video phone from the future'-looking Echo Show to the Echo Plus with its Zigbee smart home hub and our new favourite, the circular screened Echo Spot – a sort of smart alarm clock that can make video calls and show you the weather.

All of them have smart home controls, news and weather, music via their own speakers or ones connected by Bluetooth or, in the case of Dot and Spot, a 3.5mm cable.
