"Customers will now be able to purchase Echo devices from more than 350 retail outlets such as Croma, Reliance, Vijay Sales and Crossword, among others, across 20 cities in India", Parag Gupta, head of product management and marketing, Amazon Devices, was quoted as saying by the report of Economic Times. 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.
Echo devices are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around the speaker's voice. In order to make and receive calls using Alexa, users need to have supported Echo devices or the companion Alexa app on their Android or iOS mobile phones, Amazon said in its release. Additionally, you can use the Alexa app on your smartphone to type or send messages. You can do it by tapping the conversations icon in the bottom of the application. Drop-in enables room-to-room calling.
With all the pieces in place, you can say "Alexa, show the [Device Name]" to instantly stream video. The addition of a skill for Alexa to the SmartCast platform gives consumers with Alexa-enabled devices simple, hands-free control of key entertainment features on their VIZIO SmartCast display. If you have more than one Echo devices setup in your home, you can now play music on them simultaneously. Once the group is created, simply say "Alexa, play Despacito everywhere".
