Amazon Echo Input launched; turns any speaker into smart speaker
- Expanding its Alexa-enabled Echo lineup, Amazon has launched the Echo Input in India at a price tag of Rs 2,999.
- The device is capable of turning any ordinary Bluetooth/ AUX speaker into an Alexa-enabled smart speaker which can listen to your voice commands. Therefore, users who already own a good speaker need not invest in a separate smart speaker.
- The Echo Input simply connects to an ordinary speaker via an AUX connector or through Bluetooth using the official Alexa smartphone app.
- It has a four-microphone arrangement that allows users to talk to Alexa from across the room.
- Once connected to your normal speaker, the Alexa AI can play music, set timers, create to-do lists, control compatible smart home devices, etc. handsfree through your voice commands.
