NEW DELHI: Amazon has launched a new feature that will allow the users of its Echo devices to make group calls — both audio and video. Although the feature was announced back in September, but according to a report by The Verge, the group calling feature s being rolled out starting today in India, as well as Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, the US, and the UK. The feature will allow up to seven people to join an audio or video call on supported Echo devices such as Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show by using commands like “Alexa, call my family” to call a group you’ve created in the Alexa app. Earlier this week, Amazon also added new features for Fire TV Stick (3rd-gen) and Fire TV Stick Lite. The features include new UI, including a new main menu, find destination, user profiles, and voice-first experience with Alexa. Calling it Fire TV’s biggest experience update ever, Amazon has also enabled support for up to six user profiles on Fire TV. Profiles allow each user to access their viewing history, recommendations, watch list, live TV preferences and select settings, including accessibility features. After setting up your Alexa Voice Profile, you can switch Fire TV profiles by saying “Alexa, switch to my profile.”
