Amazon Echo, Echo Dot discount makes perfect Google Home rival right now

Two Echo speakers can meanwhile be purchased for Rs 16,998 under the scheme.

The Google Home is priced at Rs. 9,999, while the Mini variant of the speaker is priced in at Rs. 4,499.

Google launched the Home and Home Mini speakers in India at very competitive prices, pitting them against the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. However, the offer is only for a limited time, with the window being between the 6th of April 2018 to the 12th of April 2018.

"Echo Spot combines the popular small design of Echo Dot with the added benefit of a display, and the features you love about Alexa into a stylish and compact device", he said.

Amazon has it discounted by 14% off at $59.99 right now, saving you an extra $10 off.

As part of the offer, a Rs. 1,000 discount is applicable on the purchase of two Amazon Echo Dots in the same order, while a Rs. 3,000 discount is applicable on purchase of two units of the Amazon Echo with the same condition. The offer is eligible only for those orders made from Cloud connect_SLP or Estore mall sellers on Amazon India. "We will offer free six months of Google Play Music - a music and podcast streaming service - and special offers from commercial music streaming service Gaana", Mr Chandra added. These offers, were purely introductory in nature and Amazon had subsequently discontinued them with all three products to be purchased for full price without any add-ons or freebies.

Trump had earlier tweeted "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria ". Russian Federation fiercely denies the allegations.

The Spot will join the Echo, the Echo Dot and the Echo Plus as the fourth Alexa device available in Canada.

But where the Echo really trumps the Home is via its long list of skills - that Amazon keeps growing each day - and smarter home integration.

The idea seems to be to turn Alexa, the company's virtual assistant, from a dutiful aide under the user's command to one with a more proactive attitude. Both Google Home and Google Home Mini would be made available online (their exclusive online partner is Flipkart).

"When buying a Google "Home" at Reliance Digital or MyJio stores, you get a free JioFi router with 100GB of high-speed 4G data (worth Rs 2,499)", the company said in a statement.

Google "Home" has been designed with two microphones that utilise a technique called "neural beam forming" to enable accurate far-field voice recognition. This limited time offer lasts only till the 30th of April, 2018.
