The Amazon Echo now doubles as a home intercom system

It is available at that discounted price in both black and white color options as Amazon looks to make room for its Echo Show.

To make it easier, Amazon put together a list of "certified Bluetooth speakers" it suggests you pair with the Echo Dot - and we've rounded up the best of those below. The Amazon Show features a 7-inch display and video calling.

A big part of the value I found in the Echo Show was how useful it was to... well, have the device show me information. The Echo Show is available to pre-order for $230 and will be released on June 28, 2017 (this Wednesday).

The Alexa-powered Amazon Echo has never been cheaper than $129.99, but it has previously retailed at this price point past year for Prime Day. That the other two aren't discounted isn't all that shocking, as the Echo Dot is already fairly low-priced and the Echo Show can still be considered a brand new product. Echo responds very quickly and you can start using this service instantly by saying the word "Alexa".

No doubt Google's superior general search capabilities played some part in the result, but the report does note that Amazon's Alexa assistant, which runs on the Echo, was, unsurprisingly, pretty impressive when it came to retail search.
