“We want you to have access to Alexa everywhere — in your living room, kitchen, bedroom or the office,” Jayshree Gururaj, Director, Amazon Devices, said in a statement. All new Echo devices are available for pre-order on Amazon.in, starting Friday. Echo Dot and Echo Plus will start shipping next month while Echo Sub will be available later this year.
With a new curved shape and fabric finish, Echo Dot is available in charcoal, heather gray, and sandstone colors. “Connect to your home theatre or favorite speaker via Bluetooth or 3.5mm audio cable for even bigger sound,” said the company.
With its built-in Zigbee smart home hub, the Echo Plus makes setting up compatible smart home devices easy.
