Reducing the price of the Echo Dot from $49.99 to $29.99 for the holiday season clearly worked.
Amazon announced its annual roundup of milestones for the holiday season, and the Echo Dot was the most purchased item across all categories on the site this year. While the company did not provide an exact number, it said that it sold â€œmillionsâ€ of the device around the world. Interestingly enough, it was also the most â€˜voice purchasedâ€™ item of the year meaning people used Echos to buy more Echos.
Alexa truly dominated the site this year with Amazon selling twice as many Fire TV Sticks as last year which now includes Alexa.
With Amazonâ€™s digital assistant now showing up not only in more homes, but more rooms inside those homes, one has to wonder what Amazonâ€™s end game is. Something tells us that Amazon has even more plans for its favorite employee down the road.
