Smart home apps are mostly MIA from Windows 10, but that doesn't mean you can't join in the fun. With an Amazon Echo and a web browser, you can set up a smart home that you control with your voice — not an iOS or Android phone.
If you've been eyeing the full-sized Echo and haven't dropped the cash on one already, today's the day. Leading up to Prime Day, Amazon has dropped the price on a certified refurbished Echo down to just $89.99, which is $75 off its regular price!
If you've got a hankering for an Amazon Echo but you were waiting for a deal, now would be the time to bite. For a "limited time" Amazon UK has taken £25 off the price of the big Echo, bringing it down to £124.99.
Alexa has gained the ability to make voice calls, and Echo Show will bolster the living room. So will there be any room left for a smart speaker from Microsoft? Maybe. In the meantime, we look at Amazon's latest.
