The Amazon voice-shopping via Alexa function has existed in the USA and a few other countries for a while. Now Amazon has finally brought it to India. The service currently only works with English and Amazon has promised that more functionality will be added as Alexa’s AI system continues to get smarter. This will likely allow Alexa to execute more commands via voice. Also Read - Amazon Echo Auto smart speaker brings the power of Alexa inside your car

Other Alexa commands

Apart from Amazon shopping commands, Alexa can also help users with a lot of various kinds of queries. You can ask the voice assistant about the cricket score, or the update on coronavirus.
