Year after year, Amazon's Black Friday sale proves to be one of the best times to purchase an Alexa-enabled device. This year in particular, there's even more voice-controlled devices up for grabs, making Black Friday 2018 one of the biggest sales on Alexa devices we've seen. This includes massive markdowns on its newest generations of Echos, Echo Shows and Echo Dots, as well as steep discounts on other popular Amazon tech gadgets, such as the Fire TV Stick, Ring Doorbell and Kindle Paperwhite.

What makes Alexa products stand out from the crowd? It all boils down to versatility. Like most voice-controlled assistants, Alexa can have your device read you the daily news, play your favorite music, set timers and control other smart home devices, such as your robot vacuum cleaners or sprinkler systems, completely hands-free.

Speaker products, such as the Echo and Echo Show also feature solid audio quality so that you can have a more immersive listening experience. And video devices, such as the Echo Show or Ring Doorbell, can act as your second pair of eyes around the home for added security, whether that's seeing who's at your front door or checking up on your newborn while they're sleeping.

And if you're considering purchasing a Fire TV stick, Amazon Look or Echo Dot, now is the time. You likely won't see these types of savings until next Amazon Prime Day. Below, we've outlined a fraction of the Alexa and Amazon products that are available for grabs this Black Friday. And for a full list of Amazon's Black Friday offerings, click here.
