The e-commerce giant today unveiled the Echo Input Portable Smart Speaker Edition, a new variant in the lineup that includes a built-in battery.

The Echo Input smart speaker will be available in India at an introductory price of Rs 4,999.

If you thought Amazon was done releasing new devices into its Echo smart speaker line-up, think again.

You can interact with Alexa, ask any question you may like, or use any of the skills Amazon has on offer to automate tasks like ordering food or controlling other smart home appliances.

"Portability has been one of the most requested features in India", Miriam Daniel, VP of Alexa Devices, said.

Amazon sells a lot of Echo-branded devices nowadays in the USA and many other markets around the world, most of which are created to smarten up your home.

With a portable speaker that packs in a 4,800 mAh battery with a promised backup time of 10 hours on continuous playback, Amazon is trying to target the millennial users who like to carry their speakers around while playing music. Thanks to Amazon's far-field voice recognition that can also be found on other Echo devices, the new Echo Input allows you to access Alexa from anywhere in the room. "So we have designed something just for you". From enjoying songs with a cup of tea at the balcony to reciting bedtime stories to kids in the bedroom, the newly launched Alexa Echo Input will let their users do everything they had always wished from a speaker. You know that the device is fully charged when all the 4 LEDs turn off.

Amazon later rectified the issue, which was presumably to save battery life on the rechargeable product, but the Tap was still discontinued a year ago in the United States - suggesting that users didn't flock to it after the action that gave it its name was dropped from the product. Coming in at the equivalent of 5,000 Indian rupees (roughly $70), it looks to be a sort of middle ground between the 3rd-gen Echo (normally $100) and the budget-oriented Echo Dot, which is typically priced at $50.

Launched first in India, Amazon has initiated the pre-booking of the device which is set for live orders from December 18, 2019. It is a rechargeable battery and you get a microUSB based charging port at the back.
