Black Friday 2017: Best Amazon Echo, Google Home, Sonos One smart wireless speaker deals

If home automation’s high up on your tech to-do list, then there’s some great Black Friday deals to be had on Amazon Echo, Google Home and Sonos One speakers, on top of everything else that’s been announced so far[1].

Amazon Echo and Echo Dot

Both Amazon and Currys PC World have slashed the prices of its new Echo (2017 edition)[2] and Echo Dot speakers by GBP20 and GBP10 respectively, making getting set up with Amazon’s line-up of smart voice-activated assistant/entertainment hubs even cheaper. The Echo is designed to act as your main hub speaker and would sit in your living room or wherever you spend most of your time at home. The mini Echo Dots can be paired wirelessly via the Alexa app, so that tunes you stream on the main speaker can be piped through to other rooms, like your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, or anywhere where you perhaps wouldn’t want, or space won’t allow a bigger speaker.

Google Home

Thanks to its compatibility with Chromecast Audio, streaming music to speakers from your phone couldn’t be easier with Google Home[4]. Like Amazon’s Echo ecosystem, as well as big speakers, you can also pair your Google Home with Google Home Minis.

One key advantage Google Home has is that it can handle up to six different user accounts, giving different calendar information and playlists for each, as long as everyone has a phone with the Google Home app running. Currys PC World has a string of Google Home deals running throughout Black Friday, including one which sees a Google Home speaker bundled with a Google WiFi dual-band wireless range extender.

Sonos One

Sonos One[5] is not just a powerful wireless speaker in its own right, it’s also one of the few speakers on the market that’ll work with Amazon Alexa and (eventually) Google Assistant, making it an excellent bridge between two separate ecosystems. During Black Friday, Amazon’s selling the Sonos One in black and white with a 25 per cent discount.
