It has practically confirmed the existence of the Amazon Fire TV Cube that could very well be a fusion of Amazon's two device lines. The device is rumored to have Echo-like voice command capabilities and also act as your everyday streaming device. Users will first need to download the Amazon Alexa app on their Android and iOS smartphones and pair the Echo Spot. Called FreeTime Unlimited, the service costs extra, even if you have Amazon Prime. Purchase products immediately or add items easily to your shopping list or your shopping cart.

The Echo Spot can be bought online at www.amazon.in/echospot and select retailers across India including Croma, Reliance and Vijay Sales for Rs.10,499 for a limited period only. The Spot is a small speaker with a camera and a tiny 2.5-inch display. Amazon will soon sell its Echo range of smart speakers offline as well. It's also rumored the Cube will combine Echo Dot functionality, with users being able to interact with Amazon's Alexa assistant simply by using their voice (via AFTVnews). "With the screen, Alexa adds an enriching visual experience to voice activation and control".

Amazon's even cut the rates of the Echo and Echo Dot. It'll connect to any other Alexa device for a simple multi-room music system, too.

Showing the importance of the Indian market, Amazon launched its smart speaker range in India in October a year ago. If the user tends to have more than one Echo, Alexa claims to respond intelligently from the Echo you are closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception). You can buy two Echo Spot for Rs 19,999 only.

Recently, Amazon began to ramp up hiring at its Lab 126, where the robot is being developed.

Amazon's webpage teasing the new Fire TV Cube. "Our target groups for Echo devices are families that are technology-friendly and willing to spend for convenience". Also, the details of the robots including its tasks and features are unclear, but it is expected to have a robot with upgraded features of Alexa which will be able to move from a place.

The Alexa powered device will come in handy when making video calls, listening to music and watching videos and is now available at Rs 10,499 after discount.
