Alexa Will Soon Be Able To Speak In Indian Languages

Alexa Will Soon Be Able To Speak In Indian Languages

At first glance, you may mistake this for a regular 3rd-gen Echo Dot, until you see the new bright Rainbow color scheme that's being offered.

There are almost as many smart speakers with Alexa at this point as there are stars in the sky, but Amazon's own Echo devices usually get new features before third-party speakers.

Following the release of the new Fire 7 tablet, Amazon has also dropped a new Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet.

New FreeTime Unlimited Alexa features include news reports via National Geographic and News-o-Matic with the command, "Alexa, what's my news?" "Our Echo Dot is the easiest way to add Alexa to any room, and the newest edition has rich, full sound that is 70% louder than the previous generation". Parents can control the kind of news and updates that the Flash Briefing offers through the Parent Dashboard.

Hundreds arrested at Moscow protest over Ivan Golunov's arrest
Ivan Golunov was freed on Tuesday following an unprecedented show of media and popular solidarity. "But we came here anyway". OVD-Info, a group which monitors arrests of opposition figures, said: "More than 400 people had been detained at the march".

The company is also including an interesting feature that lets them build their own Alexa Skill from a set of pre-made templates. You can have your child be the star of the tale or ask Alexa for your fortune. Amazon notes that none of the skills available within FreeTime Unlimited collect personal information.

Amazon updated its Echo Dot speaker back in 2018, so it's no surprise that the tech company chose to revamp its original Echo Dot Kids Edition with a next-gen device as well. Parents will also be able to set limits, review activity on the device, set age limits, and filter out specific content to keep their kids safe.

Just like last year's model, FreeTime Unlimited is bundled for free for a year. The same FreeTime Unlimited account can be used for other Amazon products.
