Anker Eufy Genie launches with Alexa support
The obvious choice for those looking for a fully-featured Alexa device is Amazon's Echo speaker. Unfortunately, it does not come cheap, carrying a price tag that reads US$180. The cheaper Echo Dot comes with fewer features, but also costs just US$50. Now, the Anker Eufy Genie is ready to hit the market as a cheaper Echo Dot alternative.
Anker's smart speaker has a price tag of just US$34.99 and, since its own audio quality cannot reach any peaks, it features an auxiliary port that allows its owners to connect more powerful speakers. Anker also plans to release more smart home devices in the future, and the Eufy Genie will be compatible with all of them. There is no information about its upcoming siblings right now, but we will probably hear more about these IoT devices soon enough.
Those interested in making their homes smarter without breaking the bank should wait just a little longer because the Anker Eufy Genie is not available for purchase yet. However, it is scheduled to hit Amazon on August 16.
