Yes, it can! But you will still have to plug it in yourself. Amazon’s Echo Flex has now made its Alexa voice assistant more accessible, thanks to its ₹2999 price tag, and the fact that you just need a wall socket to get it up and running. Once plugged into a socket, this plug-in Echo is always ready to receive voice commands, whether it’s to announce that “it’s dinner time” or place hands-free calls, and even catch up with the cricket scores on your way out to work. And that built-in USB port makes perfect sense as you can use the passthrough to plug in your charging cable and juice up your phone.
