Amazon has been actively working on Echo devices and while the company announced the Echo lineup in India last year, they didn’t launch all the devices. However, this is set to change as the company announced Echo Spot for the Indian market today.
Echo Spot offers similar features as other Echo devices with an added advantage of a screen to interact with. Amazon believes that a screen can help users to interact with both voice and touch.
Echo Spot combines the popular design of the Echo Dot with the added benefit of a display. With the screen, Alexa adds an enriching visual experience to voice activation and control. We are excited to bring Echo Spot to our customers in India.
– Jayshree Gururaj, Director Amazon Devices
Amazon considers Spot as a perfect device for your nightstand as you can access all the important information like calendar, weather forecast, alarms, etc. With the introduction of Echo Spot, Amazon has also added the ability to set musical alarms for Echo Spot and other older Echo devices as well.
One of USP of this device is the Alexa-to-Alexa video calling. Since this device comes with a 2.5-inch screen and a front camera, users can use the drop-in feature to video call to another Spot or to the Alexa companion app. Amazon announced the Drop-in feature for the Indian audience some time back.
Echo Spot is available for 12,999 INR but Amazon is currently running a 19% discount offer so you can get the device for 10,499 INR. Amazon is also giving another 1,000 INR discount if you buy 2 devices. If you’re interested in the device then head to Amazon India to buy Echo Spot.
