Amazon has announced an improvement to the Xbox One bundles that it sells. As of today, if you buy an Xbox One bundle via Amazon you will also get a third-generation Echo dot smart speaker while supplies last. The Echo Dot is added thanks to the Xbox skill landing on the console.
With that new Xbox skill, Alexa and Cortana devices can now control the console with voice commands. The Echo Dot is normally a $49.99 device and is being added to existing bundles.
If you want the free Echo Dot, you need to be sure it is included before you click the buy button. The smart speaker does come with the Xbox One S starter bundle but doesn’t come with the Fallout 76 Xbox One X bundle.
That latter bundle will include the console and a copy of Fallout 76, one of the most anticipated games of the year. That console will sell for $499.69. While Polygon reports the Echo Dot is included, that isn’t called out on the Amazon website.
