Whether you're moving into a new place or are simply interested in adding a new smart speaker or display to your household, Amazon has got you covered with a bunch of deals on almost every product in its Echo lineup, including the latest generation smart speakers.
Prime Day is always the best time of the year to pick up any of Amazon's gadgets, be it a new Fire TV Stick or a budget Fire tablet. If you're looking to get Alexa in every room in your house, nearly every Echo device is on sale through the end of today, including some of the latest smart speakers, smart displays, and more.
If you're on the market for a smart display, Amazon's latest Echo Show is currently marked down, selling for $210, which is $40 less than its traditional price. It's a great option to place calls, listen to music, watch content, and even have a handy helper in the kitchen while cooking.
Amazon is often regarded as one of the companies that democratized voice assistants and home automation, thanks to Alexa and its range of Echo devices. Today, the company's Echo Show smart displays let people control their home, video call loved ones, play content, and check their upcoming appointments a glance. These devices are designed to be placed on a flat surface, though, making them harder to use in some rooms. To solve this issue, Amazon is reportedly developing a new device that can be mounted on the wall.
Whether you're able to dig up that voice remote or end up pairing an always-listening Alexa speaker, Amazon is introducing a few new voice commands for you to try on your Fire TV — including a whole new suite that will take advantage of that big canvas in an Echo Show-esque way.

The onset of COVID-19 caused a rapid growth in demand for video conferencing apps, as school classes and office meetings everywhere went virtual. Google Meet and Google Duo added support for group video calls on smart displays earlier this summer, but now another popular contender is poised to join the club: Zoom will be available on smart displays from Google, Facebook, and Amazon later this year.
With Halloween in the rearview mirror and November speeding like a freight train toward Thanksgiving, the official holiday shopping season will be here before you know it.

When Amazon introduced the Echo Show 5, a 5-inch variant of the Echo Show back in May, it was well suited to win over users looking for a smaller or more affordable smart display. Its initial price of $90 was more affordable than other products in this space, and we've seen it drop as low as $65 in the past few months. But now, the Echo Show 5 is available from Amazon for a new low of only $60, which is a savings of 33%.
