Amazon’s new Echo Dot is smaller and $29.99

Amazon introduced a third-generation version of the Echo today with a dedicated bass tweeter and a modified, shorter design. The new device looks to be about 25% the size of the original Echo, is cloth-covered, and on sale today for $30 bucks.

Multi-room audio has been a major request of Echo users nearly since its inception. The introduction of audio that can stream to multiple devices simultaneously means that Echo now poses a direct competitive threat to Google Home and Sonos. It will also offer a low-cost alternative to Apple’s forthcoming HomePod.
