If you're interested, head over to each of the links above and remember that shipping is free for all of them and you get access to Alexa's more than 12000 skills, hands-free calls and messages, along with integration with Amazon Music, Saavn, and TuneIn. As spotted by Android Police, customers in India can now purchase the Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Plus, and Harman Kardon Allure, although all of the speakers are notably more expensive than the versions sold in the US. No scrolling or searching through hundreds of contacts on your mobile.

It's a server-side update, so nothing has to be done from your side, except that you need to update the Alexa App. Interestingly, Amazon brings more skills to Echo which will now let users keep in touch with each other using the Alexa-to-Alexa calling and messaging feature. You can do it by tapping the conversations icon in the bottom of the application. Drop-in enables room-to-room calling.

A viewer said the ad caused their Echo Dot device to respond after hearing the ad on the television.

Another great feature making its way to the Echo smart speakers is the multi-room music.

Customers who purchase the Echo Plus from Amazon and select retail outlets will also get a Philips Hue smart bulb free.

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. Once the group is created, simply say "Alexa, play Despacito everywhere".

In addition to Alexa skills, customers can also use the Amazon Music Service to access a huge library of Indian and global music.

But things were made worse when the phrase was repeated by TV anchor Jim Patton, who said: "I love the little girl saying, 'Alexa ordered me a dollhouse".' Viewers were stunned when their own Amazon Echoes picked up the voice requests in the report and also ordered the child's toy online. 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.
