The VIZIO SmartCast skill for Alexa allows users with Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Echo Show and other Alexa-enabled devices to ask Alexa to control their VIZIO SmartCast displays. The Echo Dot is available at a price of Rs 4,499, while the Echo and Echo Plus are selling at Rs 9,999 and Rs 14,999 respectively.

Initially, Amazon Echo, Echo Plus and Echo Dot were available by invitation only.

The feature, called 'Your Voice, ' can be set up by saying the following phrase to Amazon's voice-activated assistant, "Alexa, who am I?"

Back in October a year ago, Amazon launched its Echo, Echo Plus (review), and Echo Dot smart speakers in India, but instead of opting for an open sale route, the company chose to initially sell the speakers on an invite-only basis in the country.

The Alexa-powered Echo speaker line will soon be gaining some new features.

Echo devices are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around your voice-they are always ready, hands-free, and fast. In order to make or receive using Alexa, users will first need to have supported Echo devices or the free Alexa app on their Android or iOS mobile phones.

You will also use Alexa conversations to contact other Echo devices in your home as an intercom as a part of the Drop in feature. In addition, users can set up routines for Alexa to perform a series of actions from a single voice command, shop on Amazon.in using their voice, and choose from over 12,000 Alexa skills to enhance their Echo experience.

Customers who purchase the Echo Plus from Amazon and select retail outlets will also get a Philips Hue smart bulb free. But now you can purchase them at amazon.in and over 350 retail outlets in the country including Croma, Reliance, Vijay Sales, Crossword, and more in 20 cities.

To enable this feature, just link the new Canary skill to your Alexa account.
