Amazon has today announced Echo Input Portable Smart Speaker with in-built 4800 mAh rechargeable battery. The Echo Input Portable is voice-controlled smart speaker that combines hands-free access to Alexa and its 4,800mAh battery is claimed to deliver 10 hours of continuous music playback from a single charge. Echo Input Portable comes with 360-degree audio and allows customers to access Alexa from anywhere in the room using the same far-field voice recognition as other Echo devices.
With its four-microphone array, Echo Input Portable enables customers to talk to Alexa from across the room. Just ask, and Alexa will answer questions, play music, read the news, control your smart home, add items to the To-Do list, and much more. With Echo Input Portable, customers can stream music from Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music, JioSaavn, Gaana or Hungama Music. This speaker can be connected to new or existing Multi-Room Music group for synchronised streaming across rooms or your entire home. And, if customers have multiple Echo devices within hearing distance, Amazon’s Echo Spatial Perception (ESP) technology intelligently calculates the clarity of their voice and determines which Echo is closest and then responds to the request.
It can also control compatible smart home devices such as lights, plugs, and fans from Philips, Wipro, Syska, TP-Link and more by just asking Alexa. Just say “Alexa, turn on the geyser” or “Alexa, turn off the lights”.
Like all Echo devices, Echo Input Portable is built with multiple layers of privacy protections, including a mic off button that electronically disconnects the microphones. Additionally, customers have control over their voice recordings—with the ability to view, hear, and delete utterances at Alexa Privacy Settings or in the Alexa app, at any time.
The new Echo Input Portable is available with a black fabric design for an introductory offer of Rs. 4,999. Customers can pre-order at www.amazon.in/EchoInputPortable, and devices will start shipping from December 18. Customers can also try Echo Input Portable at Amazon Devices kiosks located in select shopping malls across the country.
