Anker’s got a smarthome speaker.

Another day, another smart home speaker. Introducing the Eufy Genie. The Eufy Genie runs on Amazon Alexa and is from the company Anker. You may have heard of Anker by their device charging accessories like powerbanks, usb cables and usb chargers.

Cute little fella.

In the looks department, the Eufy Genie resembles an Echo Dot that gained some weight at the waist. In terms of sound, the Eufy Genie has an audio driver that according to the website ‘uses HiFi-grade material to deliver stronger bass and 200% more volume than the Amazon Dot’.
