Whether you're a newer or older owner of an almost shockingly affordable Moto Z-series smartphone
, you probably already know there's an easy way to enhance the functionality of your Android handset. Easy doesn't always equal cheap, though, as Moto Mods are typically available for anywhere between $50 and $200 a pop, depending on exactly what features they aim to make better.
The Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa
is one of the more expensive Mods you can purchase from Motorola's official US website and third-party retailers like Best Buy, normally fetching $149.99 to essentially transform your mobile device into a convenient Echo with powerful sound technology. But after seeing the JBL SoundBoost 2 offered at a massive 56 percent discount
more than once lately
, the time has come for the Alexa-supporting smart speaker mod to drop to only $49.99.
That means you're looking at substantial savings of a full Benjamin, or 66 percent off the list price of this voice-controlled bad boy, although the bad news is you need to hurry and take advantage of the killer Best Buy deal before it expires later today. The special sale is also marked as a "clearance", so there's a good chance the Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa will be discontinued after the 24 hour-only promotion runs its course.
The way this heavily marked-down Moto Mod works is pretty straightforward, attaching to the back of your Moto Z3
, Z3 Play, Z2 Play, Z2 Force, or original Moto Z to add hands-free, always-listening Alexa support with four microphones in tow. Your handset's audio capabilities will get a nice boost as well with 6W speaker power and a couple of 1-inch full-range drivers, and the "brainy boombox" also packs its own battery instead of draining your phone's juice to keep the party and the convenient Alexa assistance going for up to 15 hours.
