Echo Input now available in India
Add the power of Alexa to existing speakers

Bangalore—January 17, 2019—Today Amazon announced the availability of Echo Input for customers in India. Echo Input lets you easily add Alexa to your existing speaker through a 3.5mm audio cable (included in the box) or via Bluetooth. It features a four-microphone array so you can talk to Alexa from across the room. Echo Input is available from today for just ₹2,999 at amazon.in/echoinput, and begins shipping immediately.

Echo Input is just 12.5mm thick – less than a deck of cards – and blends easily into every room. You can use the Alexa app (available for free for Android and iOS devices) to easily connect Echo Input to your speakers. Unlike Echo Dot, which has a built-in speaker, all audio is played through the connected speaker rather than through Echo Input itself. When connected to Echo Input, your speaker can be added to a new or existing multi-room music group. You can also adjust the volume of Echo Input with your voice. In addition to Amazon Prime Music, Saavn and TuneIn you can now listen to music from Hungama and Gaana which are available on Alexa starting today.

“Our customers tell us that they love the convenience of being able to ask Alexa to play music, get information, control smart home devices, and much more,” said Jayshree Gururaj, Director, Amazon Devices. “With Echo Input, we are giving users even more options to choose the best Echo device for their needs. Adding Echo Input to your existing speakers is the easiest way to begin your voice-first experience with Alexa.”

Echo Input comes with attractive launch offers from speaker brands such as Bose, JBL and UE Boom. When you purchase Echo Input with select speakers from these brands, you can get up to ₹2,999 off. Visit amazon.in/echoinputoffers for offer details.

Echo Input joins the Echo family of devices, which includes Echo Dot, Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Spot and Echo Sub. It will also be available in Croma, Vijay Sales and other offline retailers.
