You might have thought that Lady Luck was on your side on Friday when consumers had a brief window of opportunity on Amazon’s web site allowing them to order the Amazon Echo Dot for free.

These market share figures are bound to change when Microsoft’s Invoke and Apple’s HomePod are launched later this year.

While previously Google Home could access playlists and stream music for subscribers to Spotify’s paid Premium service, those using Spotify’s free ad supported …
