The 2017 holiday shopping season brought record sales to Amazon

How to set-up the new smart speaker you got for Christmas

Let Alexa DJ Your Christmas Gathering

This combined with the fact that Amazon is the largest retailer in the world, makes being blacklisted a negative impact on sales even for a company of Google's size. The Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, and TP-Link Smart Plug Mini were the most ordered items via voice.

The lower cost Echo Dot topped Devices in sales and was the best-selling product from any manufacturer on Amazon.

Amazon's Fire TV Stick was the top-selling line of streaming-media players in the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan on the site, with the site selling twice as many Fire TV Sticks this year vs. last year's holiday season.

Amazon kept its numbers fairly general, but the report gives a glimpse into device use and sales, as well as Prime membership.


The most requested song from Alexa during the holidays was "Jingle Bells". More than 2 billion items sold this way globally previous year, according to Amazon, and 140 million items were sold this way from just Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday.

AR View was used the most on Cyber Monday. Amazon also touted how over the span of one week, more than four million people became Prime members, or started a free trial. So far the company has focused on making moves to optimize those operations rather than cutting back its benefit.

But all that fulfillment and speedy shipping has Amazon scrambling to puzzle out the ideal last-mile delivery scenario, so far with limited success, according to retail analyst Nick Egelanian, president of retail development consultants SiteWorks International, who suggested that it's not actually all that new a problem in retail. In total, Amazon said it sold "tens of millions" of Alexa-enabled devices worldwide. Apple has projected revenue of $84 billion to $87 billion in the holiday quarter, which would represent growth of as much as 11 percent from the period a year earlier.
