Amazon has its own smart Assistant called Alexa, which can perform a multitude of tasks ranging from playing music to controlling your home appliances. Even though the assistant is simply a set of instructions and lines of code, the AI and ML-based programming gives it an edge once the user gets creative while asking Alexa to perform tasks. You can choose from a wide array of these smart devices in case you want a home that is smarter. To make the process easier, we have found some Alexa enabled smart devices which can be voice controlled using the digital assistant. So if you just bought yourself any one of the Echo range of smart speakers, this list should help you with all the Alexa-compatible devices available in India.
