Like the idea of a smart speaker that supports voice interactions, but creeped out by the thought of an “always-listening” speaker that wakes up whenever it hears you say “Alexa,” “OK Google,” or “hey Cortana?”
Right now you can pick up an Amazon Tap portable speaker with Alexa for just $54. While it supports an optional always-listening mode, this is also one of Amazon’s only Alexa-enabled speakers that isn’t listening all the time by default. Instead you normally need to tap a button before speaking. That’s why it’s called Tap.
