10 weirdest things you can make Amazon Echo do

  10 weirdest things you can make Amazon Echo do These bizarre Alexa commands are borderline creeptastic.For example, did you know there's a command called "The Listeners" that lets you know it's always there, listening and watching? Or that Alexa can make crazy animal noises and has a creepy laugh? For whatever reason, these features are part of the Amazon Echo device and Alexa app.

Black Friday is mere hours away and Amazon's list of product discounts is getting longer and longer. To save you valuable turkey-eating time, we've done all the arduous work and compiled the biggest and best releases right here. You're welcome.

Amazon primero introdujo la Echo Plus por US$150 el año pasado y este año mejoró el audio y como se conecta a otros dispositivos del hogar inteligente.

Some of the new Amazon deals include the Fire TV Cube at $30 off a $120 list price, and the Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and non-4K version of the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote each for 50% off. In addition to early offers on Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers, even the Echo Show 8 smart display has been discounted, seeing a further drop on its already reduced price.

Amazon Echo Loop -- everything we know about Amazon's wacky new smart ring

  Amazon Echo Loop -- everything we know about Amazon's wacky new smart ring We delve into the fine print about privacy, phone calls and how to know if it'll fit your finger.Echo Loop puts Amazon's  digital Alexa assistant on your body in a way that's different than the more anticipated earbuds route Amazon announced with the new Echo Buds ($130 or £120). Earbuds, after all, aren't usually worn all day the way a ring is. By bringing Alexa to your hands, Amazon is making sure the digital assistant can answer questions, set and announce reminders and operate your smart home gadgets all day long.

Amazon's not waiting for Black Friday to ramp up the savings on Blink and Ring products. And today, Thursday Nov. 28, is like Echo day. We're seeing price reductions across the complete range of Echo speakers and Echo Show smart displays.

It's not our favorite smart plug, but if you're getting it for $5, there's nothing to complain about. And that's the price when you bundle it in with the Echo Dot, Echo Dot with Clock, Echo, Echo Show 5 or Echo Studio, starting Nov. 27.

Starting Nov. 28: Echo speakers and smart displays

Happy Thanksgiving! While you're basting the turkey, you can buy a good chunk of Amazon's updated Echo line at some very discounted prices.

Amazon Echo Dot (third-gen): $22

Save $28

a close up of a device© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc.

Back to its Prime Day low, the Echo Dot (without the clock) puts all of the smarts of Amazon's assistant Alexa into a small and affordable package. Even at its normal price of $50, it's a good deal, so the $22 price is still something to celebrate. With voice commands, you can control your smart home, check the weather, play music, search the internet and more. You lose some sound quality with the smaller size, but you can plug it into your own speakers to make up for the difference.

$22.00 AT AMAZON

Echo Dot with Clock: $35

Save $25

But c'mon... you want the newer, cooler version with the clock built-in, right? It was just introduced in September at $60, but now it'll be at its lowest price yet: Just $35.

$35.00 AT AMAZON

Amazon Echo (second-gen): $60

Save $40

If you want a smart speaker with Alexa that has a little more oomph to its sound quality, the latest version of the original Echo might be the right choice for you. The older version of this puppy was selling for $50 at one point on Prime Day, but with a list price of $100, $60 isn't half bad.

$60.00 AT AMAZON

Amazon Echo Show 5: $50

Save $40

  Best Black Friday 2019 Amazon deals: Amazon Fire, Ring, Blink, Echo and more © Provided by CBS Interactive Inc.Tyler Lizenby/CNET

With a a 5.5-inch touchscreen and the ability to wake you up with a nifty sunrise animation, this is our favorite smart display with Alexa. And at this price, it's a no-brainer.

$50.00 AT AMAZON

Amazon Echo Show (2nd-gen): $150

Save $80

a close up of a device© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc.Tyler Lizenby/CNET

The second gen Echo Show refined the design of the first model and offers better sound quality and a 10-inch HD screen. It combines the functionality of a smart speaker like the Echo Dot with a touchscreen you can use for video calls and controlling your smart home with a tap. We like the Echo Show 5 a little better, but at $150 for the full-sized Show -- $10 less than Prime Day, which looks to be its lowest ever -- is a tempting offer.

$150.00 AT AMAZON

Echo Auto: $25

Save $25

Do you need Alexa in your car? Probably not. But who are we to judge? If you always wanted Amazon's personal assistant on the road, now you can have it for half price. That's the lowest since it first became available to buy earlier this year.
