Amazon launches Alexa and Echo devices in India

The move to add more voice assistants to a smart speaker has potential to increase consumer adoption of smart home products if they're able to work together. Amazon said that in India, Alexa through Echo speakers will tell users news, play their music as well as answer their queries.

Designed from the ground up to deliver surprisingly rich sound from a speaker of its size. "We can't speak on behalf of our voice partners and their plans".

Owners can use Trueplay to easily tune Sonos One to sound great no matter where it's placed in the home. At launch, those in the US, UK, and Germany will be able to use Alexa to control Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, SiriusXM, and TuneIn. This means you can play any sound from an iOS device-think podcasts, Youtube videos, and Netflix content-on Sonos speakers. Users can also ask the name of the song that's playing.

Sonos One, available in black and white, replaces the Sonos Play:1 as the company's entry-level speaker. The Sonos One, which will cost $199, is available for pre-order starting now, with a delivery date of October 24. After opening a flagship store in NY last year, the company is now getting ready to open a London store later this year, and a Berlin location next year. Prior to today, Sonos hasn't supported AirPlay and has only said it was looking into AirPlay 2.

After months of gentle teasing, Sonos's long-awaited smart speaker is finally here.

Sonos is also adding the ability for any Siri-powered device to control the Sonos One speaker via voice.

Sonos on Wednesday introduced its all-new smart, voice controlled speaker in the form of the Sonos One. The Echo range starts with the Echo Dot, which isn't a speaker, but an Alexa hub that can connect to existing headphones or Bluetooth speakers.

Tens of thousands of developers are building skills for Alexa using the Alexa Skills Kit, and today there are over 25,000 third-party skills available for Alexa. In terms of whole home music systems, it's hard to get simpler - or more inclusive - than Sonos.

Basically, the Amazon Alexa Echo speakers in some countries, especially in the US allows the users to make calls between Alexa users. Unfortunately, getting it to work with all your favorite music services has thus far proven quite hard.
