You might not know anyone called Alexa personally, but the name has become a world-wide phenomenon thanks to the Amazon’s range of virtual assistant AI technology.
And the most popular of the bunch? 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.
Asking for music, news, information or the weather is just the beginning of her capabilities, you can also call almost anyone, and control compatible smart home devices with your voice.
Plus, the gadget makes your life easier at home.
You can use your voice to set timers, add items to lists, or create calendar events and reminders.
You can even ask for sports scores and restaurant information (which we need more than ever at the moment) without having to lift a finger.
And if you were thinking that such a clever piece of tech would set you back by a small fortune, think again, because the Amazon Echo Dot is now just £29.99 in the Amazon Summer Sale.

Want proof of just how good an Echo Dot really is? You just need to read one of the 170,000 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,” said one shopper.
“Excellent sound, hears me from any location in my room, understands my accent. Small but mighty,” added another.
