Amazon has finally brought the Echo Spot smart speakers in India. Priced at Rs 12,999 the Amazon Echo Spot comes with a display and a camera for video calls. The smart speakers are expected to show things and converse in a much better manner thanks to the integrated display.
The Amazon Echo Spot looks more like a bedside clock, and the circular display is capable of displaying a variety of information including the weather update, clock, and also video content. That apart the only difference between the Amazon Echo Spot and the other Echo device is the presence of the display and the integrated camera that allows users to make video calls with the Alexa app on their phone.
The Amazon Prime members will be able to see the product image, title, price and user ratings on the screen while shopping. Furthermore, they can simply use voice commands to shop online and add items to their carts.
