Canary has added Amazon Alexa support for all of its customers, enabling users to view their security camera feeds on video-equipped Echo devices and Fire TVs using voice commands. Amazon clearly believes so, having unleashed the Echo range of speakers, ...

Echo devices are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around the speaker's voice. Interestingly, Amazon brings more skills to Echo which will now let users keep in touch with each other using the Alexa-to-Alexa calling and messaging feature. A new feature available now that wasn't available before is Alexa to Alexa voice calling to voice call your friends and family.

In addition to Alexa skills, customers can also use the Amazon Music Service to access a huge library of Indian and global music. You can do it by tapping the conversations icon in the bottom of the application. So, for example, if there's a Canary camera in the baby's room and it is named "Baby's Room", just say, "Alexa, show the Baby's Room".

To enhance the entertainment experience, Amazon has introduced the multi-room music feature that allows you to play and control music across multiple Echo devices at the same time. You can set the permissions on who gets to drop in on your Echo device. Just go to in your browser and you'll be able to log-in and control your device without needing a phone. Once the group is created, simply say "Alexa, play Despacito everywhere".

Back in October past year, 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.

Shortly after announcing them in the US, Amazon brought its latest Echo and Echo Plus smart speaker lineup to the Indian market in October previous year.
