Finally, now we Indians can make our home a little smarter and a little louder than they already are. Amazon India’s launched its Echo, a smart-home device that can listen, play and stream anything you like. Just ask, “Alexa is it going to rain today?” or “Alexa what's the score of India vs Sri Lanka cricket match?” or maybe “Alexa tell me a joke.” Yes, it works with Philips, SYSKA LED, Oakter, TP-Link and more. The Echo is small and responsive, it's got Bluetooth too, that can help you stream podcasts and music. It works with Amazon Prime Music, Saavn, TuneIn, and more. Are you finicky about your home decor colour? Alexa blends right in with simple colours like charcoal, sandstone, and heather gray. It’s up for grabs at ₹9999 (Available exclusively by invitation) and selected early birds can get 30% off and a year of Prime membership. No, it doesn’t echo back.
