Now all your home’s Alexa devices work like an intercom

Here's another reminder that the gadgets you buy aren't necessarily going to be supported forever: Amazon has made a decision to discontinue its Echo Look smart speaker/camera device, and existing Looks will stop working on July 24. Previously, Drop In messages could only be sent to from one Alexa-enabled device to another.

At this time, Amazon sells a variety of Echo smart speakers and smart displays in India. To start a group Drop-In conversation, you will have to trigger Alexa and ask to "Drop-In everywhere".


Amazon has brought in a new feature on its Alexa-powered smartspeakers that lets you "drop in" on a connected Echo device.

Customers in the United States can now set reminders to play across all their Alexa devices, a frequently requested feature. Users can now choose "all devices" when setting a reminder for the reminder to be played across all Alexa hardware.


According to Amazon, you can use any supported Amazon Echo device, such as an Echo, Echo Show, or Echo Plus, to simultaneously communicate with others through all the Echo devices in your house.

"When we introduced Echo Look three years ago, our goal was to train Alexa to become a style assistant as a novel way to apply AI and machine learning to fashion", Amazon said in an email to customers.


Amazon Music revealed Daily Music Pick, a new Alexa feature in which artists provide customers with daily music recommendations. Just say "Alexa, play the Daily Music Pick" and each day a new artist will select a song, album, or playlist that they've been enjoying at home. Also, Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) and Sonos Arc, a new premium smart soundbar launching on June 10, will be getting Alexa built-in.
