An Amazon Approved Echo Dot Clone (But Cheaper) From Anker; Whole Home Audio Coming Soon?

The release of the new Anker device shows just how open the platform is - in theory a product that could undercut the Echo Dot but nonetheless welcomed by Amazon. It does not have Bluetooth support, but it has almost everything else (including Spotify and other "premium" audio sources) and costs $15 less. Another nice way to talk to Alexa, and step towards ubiquity for the platform.
