Echo devices now available on and at leading retail outlets

Echo Dot is available at an MRP of Rs 4,499, Echo for Rs 9,999, and Echo Plus for Rs 14,999.

To enhance the experience, Amazon has added a new multi-room music feature that allows you to play and control music across multiple Echo devices simultaneously.

Starting today, you can purchase any of the Amazon smart speakers or devices across online and offline channels without the need for an invite.

Amazon recently brought its Echo smart speakers powered by their own digital Assistant, Alexa to India.

Echo devices are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around your voice-they are always ready, hands-free, and fast. The feature dubbed Drop-In makes it possible to make calls, send voice and text messages to Echo devices of your family and friends. The Individual Voice Profiles feature allows users to set up different profiles, so Alexa can offer personalised results to each of the individuals.

Kelly went on to say that he had learned of Porter's true situation less than an hour before he removed him from his job. Trump's tweet also struck a nerve with people who noted that assault survivors have their lives "shattered", too.

If you don't use the Alexa app for iOS or Android, you can configure your Echo through the web.

Notably, the Echo devices also feature an Alexa-to-Alexa calling and messaging feature. In the near future, developers are gearing up to add more skills to enable users to perform activities like - order food, call a taxi, control lights and more.

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".

You can also set permissions for who gets to drop in on your Echo device. The Echo devices can be purchased from over 350 retail outlets such as Croma, Reliance, Vijay Sales, Crossword and more in 20 cities across India.

Though this feature has been available for a number of months in the US, the ability for Alexa to identify individual voices has now made its way to Canada. For those buying the Amazon Echo Plus online and at select retail outlets, Amazon is offering a Philips Hue bulb free.
