Amazon Echo Pop: Features and specs
The Echo Pop speaker features a front-facing speaker that directs sound towards the user, ensuring clear music and vocals. With Alexa, users can request the speaker to play songs from various music apps, including Amazon Prime Music, Hungama, Spotify, JioSaavn, Apple Music, and more (some apps may require a subscription).

Additionally, by connecting their phones to the Echo Pop via Bluetooth, users can listen to their favourite music from their devices.

Beyond playing music, users can control numerous smart home devices using voice commands. This includes smart lights and electrical appliances from popular brands like Wipro, Syska, Xiaomi, and others. Simply say “Alexa, dim the lights in the living room” or “Alexa, switch on the AC.” For non-smart appliances, users can utilize smart plugs (sold separately) to gain control and create a pleasant environment.

The Echo Pop serves as an excellent device for kids to learn and have fun without relying on screens. Interacting with Alexa can foster curiosity and communication skills in children. Parents can ask Alexa to play bedtime stories, nursery rhymes, games, quizzes, fun facts, English lessons, and access a range of educational features. Just say “Alexa, why is the sky blue?” or “Alexa, open 1-2-3 Math” to get started.

Amazon Echo Pop: Pricing and availability
The Echo Pop is priced at Rs 4999 and can be purchased from Amazon’s official website. It is available in Green, Purple, Black, and White color options. Customers can also find the new smart speaker at online and offline stores such as Croma, Reliance Digital, Poorvika, and Amazon devices kiosks across India.
