Re: Amazon introduces echo for India; Google also plans to launch Google home in Indi
Too bad that Amazon.in removed the ability to switch languages/accents on the Alexa app. https://www.groovypost.com/howto/amazon-echo-give-alexa-a-british-accent-or-speak-german/
I returned my Echo. The main reason was because I did not like the heavy Indian accent of the Alexa voice. You can change to voice to a different accent, but then you can't use any features like Skills, etc. I like to have a neutral accent, and I found the forced "Indianness" of the new Alexa voice very offputting. Since I could not change the type of accept and still retain functionality, I ended up returning it. Happy to stick with Siri for now.
