Thought Black Friday was just a day? Think again.

This year, the major shopping event is bigger than ever, with several retailers including Argos, John Lewis and Amazon launching massive discounts over a week.

Today Amazon launched its official Black Friday Week, in which thousands of products have been slashed to half-price.

But one deal in particular has caught our eye: The Amazon Echo Dot.

The dinky voice-controlled smart speaker has had an upgrade recently, with a new speaker and design, and is perfect for any room in the house.

Satisfying requests for music, news, information or the weather, is just the beginning of its capabilities. You can also call almost anyone, and control compatible smart home devices with your voice.

Plus, the gadget can make your life easier at home as you can use your voice to set timers, add items to lists, or create calendar events and reminders.

If you were thinking that such a clever piece of tech would set you back a small fortune, think again, because the Amazon Echo Dot is now just £18.99 (reduced from £39.99).

That’s a whopping 53% off, or a saving of £21. The perfect Christmas present? We think so.

What the reviews say

Want proof of just how good an Echo Dot really is? You just need to read one of the 200,000 customer reviews online.

  • “The new Echo Dot really is a huge improvement on previous two generations. The device itself looks better for a start, sometimes the next generation of a device is a minor improvement, but on this occasion, the improvement is huge. The device is stylish, the sound quality is massively better and it has around double the volume capacity.”

  • “Excellent sound, hears me from any location in my room, understands my accent. Small but mighty.”

  • “I remember reading an article years ago when Amazon announced the first Echo. At the time I couldn't see how anyone could possibly want one as the available features seemed so pointless. Fast forward to today and I have an Echo of some form in nearly every room in my house (I don't think anyone will be hiring me as a futurist anytime soon).”

  • “Bought one... then another, wondering when I can buy a third for our bedroom.”

  • “An amazing amount of power in such a small package.”

  • “Alexa, add an Amazon Echo Dot to our shopping list.”
