The starting price of Amazon Echo devices will be Rs 4,999 in India, Amazon announced on Thursday.

“With the new range of Echo devices, we are making it more natural and convenient for customers to interact with Alexa,” said Parag Gupta, head of Amazon Devices, India.
The new Echo sounds significantly better owing to a 3.0-inch woofer, dual-firing tweeters, and Dolby processing that delivers stereo sound with clear highs, dynamic-mids, and deep bass.
The all-new Echo Dot has the same spherical design and fabric finish as Echo.
It’s is 1.6-inch front-firing speaker, producing crisp vocals and balanced bass for full sound.
The new Echo Dot with clock comes with the same enhancements as the new Echo Dot, plus a simple LED display so you can glance at the time, outdoor temperature, timers, and alarms.
Amazon has introduced Echo Show 10 that will make video calling more enjoyable as the screen moves as you move, and the camera digitally pans and zooms to keep you and your family centred in the frame.
Echo Show 10 also works as a remote camera to check in on the dog while you’re running errands — or to make sure the kids are actually on their school calls when you’re in a different part of the house.
Alexa already supports Skype, video meet app Zoom is coming later this fall.
The company also introduced Fire TV Stick Lite.
Fire TV Stick Lite gives you the most processing power in any streaming media player under $30. Fire TV Stick Lite will start shipping later this month for $29.99.
