Amazon announced that Echo Dot, Echo, and Echo Plus are widely available for purchase by all customers in India. Customers can purchase Echo devices on www.amazon.in/echo and over 350 retail outlets such as Croma, Reliance, Vijay Sales, Crossword and more in 20 cities across India. Echo Dot is available at an MRP of Rs 4,499, Echo for Rs 9,999, and Echo Plus for Rs 14,999.
Echo devices are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around your voice—they are always ready, hands-free, and fast. Alexa is the brain behind Echo devices. Just ask, and Alexa will answer questions, play music, turn the lights on and off, give sports scores, check the weather, call your friends and family and more. With far-field voice control, you can do all this from across the room using just your voice.
Echo users can now keep in touch with each other using the Alexa-to-Alexa calling and messaging feature. To make and receive calls using Alexa, users need to have supported Echo devices or the free Alexa app on their Android or iOS mobile phones. To enhance the entertainment experience, Amazon has introduced the multi-room music feature that allows you to play and control music across multiple Echo devices at the same time. In addition, users can set up routines for Alexa to perform a series of actions from a single voice command, shop on Amazon.in using their voice, and choose from over 12,000 Alexa skills to enhance their Echo experience.
Jayshree Gururaj, Director – Amazon Devices, said, “We are grateful to the customers across India who have helped create the Alexa experience during the invite phase. We are excited to make Alexa and our Echo devices available for all customers, and we can’t wait to hear about their experiences. Since Alexa runs in the cloud, she is always getting smarter – the Alexa experience in India continues to evolve with new features, even better speech recognition, new localised skills, expanded music selection, and more.”
