Eufy Genie Smart Speaker w/ Alexa on sale for $19.99 — Lowest Price Ever

The Eufy Genie is on sale for $19.99 on Amazon. This is the lowest price that the Genie has ever been. If you’re not familiar with the Eufy Genie, it’s an Alexa smart speaker that is nearly identical to the Amazon Echo Dot. I reviewed it in detail when it was released, but the summary is that it’s a good way to dip your toes into an Alexa speaker. If you already have Alexa devices in your home, the Genie is a good cheap way to add Alexa to a room that you’re not going to use too often, but still occasionally want access to Alexa. The pros of the Eufy Genie are its price and that it sounds better than the Echo Dot. The cons are that it doesn’t have Bluetooth and it doesn’t have the few features that Amazon reserves for their Echo devices, like Alexa calling and messaging.

Eufy Genie Smart Speaker w/ Alexa on sale for $24.99 — UPDATE: Now $19.99 [Expired]

The Eufy Genie Smart Speaker has just gone on sale for $24.99. This is just $5 more than the lowest price it has ever been, which was during Black Friday last year. It is essentially an Echo Dot clone that was released last year by Anker. Since it now supports Echo Spacial Perception, thanks to a recent software update, it’s a decent alternative to the Echo Dot. The Genie doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity or messaging/calling features, like the Echo Dot does, but it’s a fair bit cheaper and sounds slightly better.

Update

It’s now $19.99

Now they’ve released the Eufy Genie, an Alexa powered smart speaker that closely resembles the Amazon Echo Dot in both form and function.
