Amazon's Alexa has more than 15000 skills

Certified Refurbished Amazon Tap

But anyone leveraging Alexa's abilities can start sooner and will be privy to more deals, which Amazon said will include $20 to $50 savings on electronics and peripherals, among other discounts.

Amazon's yearly Prime Day sale gets underway on Monday July 10 with the online retailer expected to slash hundreds of prices. Normally £79 per year, it does however grant you access to unlimited one-day deliveries, the on-demand Prime Video and Prime Music streaming services, as well as the ability to borrow one book a month from Amazon's Kindle Lending Library. "And the more users that use voice shopping, the more orders Amazon is likely to fill since the shoppers no longer have to log into Amazon and browse, but can simply talk to an Alexa device they are likely already using". That is boatloads more than the number of apps available for Alexa's chief rivals, Google Assistant and Microsoft's Cortana, according to recent Voicebot data. The latest deals can be accessed by asking Alexa "what are your deals?"

If you fancy a chance to grab these deals, visit Amazon.co.uk/primeday to sign up to Amazon now for a 30 day free trial on or before the 11th of July.

Save $6 on Greenies dog treats, original flavor, 27 oz. - say, "Alexa, order Greenies dog treats". There is a discount on the Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker III, and the second generation of the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus, which works with Alexa.

Save 35% on Haribo Gummi Bear 12-pack - say, "Alexa, order Haribo Gummi Bears". Eastern Time on July 10. Voicebot analysis that was limited only to the United States, says that the milestone was reached for the first time on June 30, 2017. In this post, we'll tell you everything you need to know. Some devices may be worth a punt if the price is right, but some products we test aren't worth a penny of your hard-earned cash.

With new deals as often as every five minutes, this year Prime Day has expanded to 13 countries: the US, UK, Spain, Mexico, Japan, Italy, India, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium and Austria. Amazon is offering different deals in the lead-up to the big day.

In a statement, Amazon Prime VP Greg Greeley said, "Voice shopping is an exciting benefit exclusively for Prime members".
