Amazon and Flipkart were on each other's tails by hosting limited period sales on their respective platforms. Amazon's Prime Day sale was concluded on Tuesday midnight, while the Flipkart Big Shopping Days sale will go on till Thursday. But Amazon still has some incredible deals going for shoppers.

If you've always wanted to see what's so magical about Echo speakers with Alexa running the show, now is the ideal time for you to get started. Amazon has the Echo speakers listed at unbelievable prices, putting at the right place to compete against the rivaling Google Home speakers.

Amazon Echo Dot is the cheapest of the Echo series and it is available at Rs 2,999 instead of Rs 4,099. At this price, the tiny smart speaker with integrated Alexa is a steal and also retails at the same price as the Google Home Mini speaker during Flipkart's sale.

If your budget allows you to spare a few more bucks, Amazon Echo is up for grabs for Rs 7,999. Buyers save Rs 2,000 with this purchase, same as they would while buying Google Home. That's right! The best smart speakers we've in town are selling at a discounted price, so it is best to grab them before the offer runs out.

We've reviewed both Amazon Echo and Google Home and found them incredibly cool and useful, even for a non-techy Indian household. Google Assistant and Alexa are the greatest AI assistants and it's fun to have them at your disposal ready to serve your commands like turning off the television, switching the lights, answering trivia, playing your favourite tracks, and even playing some cool games.

Amazon is still not offering any discounts on the Echo Plus and Echo Spot smart speakers. The main reason behind this could be the lack of competition it has for both of its premium speakers from Google, which is yet to launch the Home Max in India. Stay tuned for more updates on offers from Amazon and Flipkart.
