Anker Eufy Genie launches with Alexa support

Anker Eufy Genie smart speaker, cheapest Alexa device on the market mid-August 2017
Anker Eufy Genie
Priced at just US$34.99, this new smart speaker is the cheapest Alexa-enabled device available on the market right now. Its set of Alexa capabilities is limited, but at least it can be connected to another audio system to improve the sound quality it provides.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
