Sony Smart TVs Are Adding Alexa

Amazon has placed a lot of emphasis on its Alexa virtual assistant recently, launching a plethora of Echo devices during a surprise event.

In the straight-to-consumer smart home world, there are two clear camps - Google and Amazon. It will be available in three colours, black, grey and white starting at Rs 4,499. But the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is still the most popular streaming device Amazon makes by a wide margin, and it's on sale right now at its lowest price since Prime Day.

With the built-in smart home hub, Echo Plus can be connected to compatible smart home devices. The Echo Sub is priced at Rs 12,999.

Amazon has yet to comment, but it's advising users to restart their Echo device - to no avail. Arriving sometime next year in India, the Echo Show is an update to last year's model and now features a larger 10-inch display, improved dual-firing, side-by-side 2-inch speakers and real-time Dolby processing.

Amazon's Echo smart speakers have faced problems with connectivity in Britain and some other European countries but are now up and running, according to outage tracker Downdetector. In March users reported hearing unprompted laughter from their Alexa-enabled devices.

Echo Dot, available for Rs 4,499, has a compact design while Amazon Echo, available for Rs 9,999, has powerful speakers that feature immersive 360-degree omnidirectional audio, and promises to deliver crisp vocals and dynamic bass response, the company said in a statement.

Aiva got another investment on September 27 from Amazon's Alexa Fund for the artificial intelligence-powered smartphone app with voice commands, which helps caretakers heed calls for care.
