Alexa ran into trouble in May when an Echo device recorded a private conversation among an OR family and sent it to one of their contacts randomly.
The company representatives gave us a demo of how the new range can control nearly any compatible appliance in your home with your voice. It still sports a 3.5-mm audio jack but they have replaced the microUSB port with standard charging port. It will be available in three colours, black, grey and white starting at Rs 4,499. For those of you hit by the outage, a reminder: with Alexa offline the switches on the walls turn on the lights and you can still look out of the window to see what the weather is like. This can be extended further by pairing another Echo Plus (2nd Gen) to create a stereo setup, and then there's the option to also add the new Echo Sub into the mix for much better bass. The new Echo Plus is available for Rs 14,999. While Alexa still dominates, recently Google Home has been outselling Echo devices.
One user confirmed the issues saying: "The Alexa app on my phone is showing "Sorry, we're experiencing system issues", and it says they're working on the problem". A third user said: "Spoken with Amazon".
Alexa also allows for vocal commands to control your compatible Smart Home products, thanks to the Zigbee Smart Home hub built into the Plus version of the Echo. In March users reported hearing unprompted laughter from their Alexa-enabled devices.
