According to AFTVnews, the cube-shaped set-top box will be equipped with far-field microphones, an integrated speaker and an LED light bar that looks similar to the trademark blue LED light found on all of Amazon's Alexa devices. This includes voice-commanding music or movies on the speaker or even connected to other speakers, making queries, voice shopping, booking tickets or a cab, hearing one's horoscope, and many other options. Under a special offer, Amazon is offering an extra discount of Rs. 1,000 ($15) when the Echo Spot is purchased in a pair, bringing down the effective price of each unit to Rs. 9,999 ($150).
The Alexa powered device will come in handy when making video calls, listening to music and watching videos and is now available at Rs 10,499 after discount.
You can use Echo Spot's front facing camera to start Alexa to Alexa's voice controlled video calls or send a message.

His potential confirmation as South Korea ambassador will still take time, however, in part because of the need for more vetting. The Washingon Post says Harris has "already told Pompeo he is willing to switch roles and serve in South Korea".
"Even though we have added a screen, we have made sure that we have retained the voice-first experience with the device". This new mini screen speaker can do all the things, which the other Echo devices offer.
Echo Dot: Rs. 4,499 is now Rs. 3,999. Gupta said there are already 15,000 skills available for Alexa out of which "a lot" are relevant for India.
Like with previous Echo devices, users can browse songs on Echo Spot by asking Alexa to show or play songs by genre, artiste, decade, composer, film, language, and more. If the user tends to have more than one Echo, Alexa claims to respond intelligently from the Echo you are closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception). Interested ones can order it from Amazon India. There is also a small camera in the Spot, which too adds features like video calling through the speaker. You just won't get all that curated kids content from Amazon's major partners.
FreeTime Unlimited costs $2.99 a month, but the device won't simply stop working when that free subscription runs its course.
