Besides this, the Echo Spot can be connected to external speakers via Bluetooth. AFTVnews reported that it's equipped with far-field microphones and an integrated speaker, as well as an LED light bar. It'll connect to any other Alexa device for a simple multi-room music system, too. If you have more than one Echo, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you are closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).

Amazon plans to release a slate of new Alexa features for parents and children, plus a new $79.99 version of its Echo Dot designed for kids, attempting to expand the appeal of its voice assistant for families and broaden its reach in the home. Echoes with screens, such as the Echo Show or Spot, won't get the feature, however. Whenever required user can just ask Alexa and view videos, play movie trailers from streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Daily Motion and Vimeo.

The paid-for tier - of which you get a free year when purchasing an Echo Dot for kids - blocks content with adult elements (sweary music and the like) - and opens up selections of kids audiobooks from Audible, ad-free stations from iHeartRadio and character-based skills and alarms. With Echo Spot, you can also see the product image, title, price and user ratings on the screen when shopping.

There are no reports on what the device's actual functions would be but some speculate it could be similar to a mobile Alexa, capable of following users around their house and doing chores, but not a "robot butler".

And, you can get the replacement just by visiting any of the authorized service provider or any nearest retail store. If the system says yes, you can go ahead and contact to the nearby Apple's official Service Center.

Here is a reported image of the Fire TV Cube, alongside the now available Fire TV (Pendant) and Alexa Voice Remote.

Prospective customers can also avail no cost EMI for Echo devices on Amazon.in and select retailers like Croma, Reliance and Vijay Sales.

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is certainly no stranger to disrupting things, but the company may have designs on bringing that concept to a whole new level.

There's also a 10% cashback deal valid on ICICI Bank credit and debit cards for the entire Echo lineup. If you buy two of them, Amazon is willing to shave off an additional Rs. 1,000 off the final bill which means you can grab a pair for Rs. 19,999. It is also available at the Amazon devices kiosk in Bangalore and Mumbai, and over 350 offline retail outlets across 20 cities in India. The Echo Dot receives a huge discount as well with the current price set at Rs 3,999 instead of its original Rs 4,499 price tag.
