India is a multi-lingual country. For a new technology to succeed in India has to fulfill a lot of criteria. Alexa when launched only reverted in English, but over the period of three years, Hindi and Hinglish were introduced into its brain cloud to understand slang words. Moreover, Puneesh Kumar, Indian Representative for Team Alexa, has reportedly hinted at adding 12 new regional languages. This new advanced is the result of the welcome of Alexa throughout the country. Since the one-year interaction of Indians with the smart assistant has risen by 65 percent. 85 percent of the entire pin codes in India have bought Echo speakers. Not only the metro cities, even small towns or remote areas have shown interest in this smart assistant.
While Alexa is available on over 100+ third-party devices including cars and earphones, there are only six smartphones that support the voice assistant. Kumar says that Amazon’s goal is to make Alexa available anywhere and everywhere, wherever the customer wants to use it.
Alexa is still to become compatible with many smartphones. Many smartphone companies don’t agree with the terms and conditions of the technology upon the sharing and recording of data.

This sale will begin on the 15th of February 2021 from midnight to the 16th of February midnight only on Amazon.in. Set your reminders ASAP not to miss out on the best deals.
