Amazon might position the device as a poor man's Echo Show with a leaning more towards video content consumption.

The Amazon Echo Spot can display live cricket scores from ESPNcricinfo, news from India Today, NDTV and others, and it'll also show booking details of your Ola cab and much more. It will also have far-field microphone abilities, meaning it will be able to hear commands even if the user speaks from a distance, just like on Amazon Echo smart speakers. Additionally, it can be connected to one's home entertainment system through Bluetooth or a 3.5mm stereo cable to voice activate your home entertainment system for multi-room music. But Amazon is selling the Echo Spot at an introductory price of Rs 10,499 and in case you want to buy two of them, it will cost you Rs 19,999.

The Echo Spot is now available on for $169. Now there are two missing functions in both streaming TV via Amazon Fire and Alexa based products.

"Echo Spot combines the popular design of the Echo Dot with the added benefit of a display", said Jayshree Gururaj, Director - Amazon Devices. All these activities on Echo Spot including video calling can be controlled through Alexa. However, people close to the project have indicated that the robot will be in a form of a mobile Alexa, and will accompany customers in some sections of theirs homes where they can't access Echo. While the same is also available on other Echo devices such as the Echo, Echo Plus and the Echo Dot, the presence of a display in the Echo Spot makes the Drop In feature seem more special in the Echo Spot.

Amazon has customised the Echo Spot for the Indian audience. If you've got an Amazon Prime subscription, you'll enjoy discounted rates of $2.99 and $6.99 per month on top of Prime. The Echo Spot is the second device in the Echo series to feature a touchscreen. Doubtless this will also involve new ways of tagging products but Amazon have proved adept at this and have the advantage that their entire marketplace is already a one product one listing experience which cuts down the workload for merchants if an item has previously been sold. "Our target groups for Echo devices are families that are technology-friendly and willing to spend for convenience".
