Amazon launched the Echo and Echo Dot in the UK and Germany earlier this year. And now, for Black Friday, the company is slashing its prices on the devices to the lowest level seen since the launch.

Today, you can grab an Amazon Echo for just £119.99 (reduced from £149.99). The cheaper Amazon Echo Dot has seen a similarly steep price decrease and you can now get one for just £39.99 (reduced from £49.99).

If you’ve been contemplating getting an Amazon Echo, now’s the time to grab one.

Although the Echo and its diminutive brother, the Echo Dot, only launched a few months ago, they already pack a number of helpful UK-specific Alexa skills. You can get the sports results from Sky News, catch up on the latest headlines from The Guardian, and even order a curry from JustEat.
