Amazon's Alexa Goes Down Across The UK and Europe

Amazon's Alexa Goes Down Across The UK and Europe

Amazon's Alexa has suffered an outage which has left people unable to use their Amazon Echo devices.

The new Echo devices are now available for pre-order on and can be experienced first-hand, exclusively at the "Amazon Festive Home".

As an introductory offer, Amazon is also including a Philip Hue light bulb free of charge, which should get your smart home setup off to a bright start. It will be available in three colours, black, grey and white starting at Rs 4,499. While Alexa still dominates, recently Google Home has been outselling Echo devices. Usually the outage affects more than just the Alexa voice assistant, however, and that appears to be the case once again. The Echo signals an issue to users with a red ring on the Echo.

The improvement in audio quality means that the new Echo Dot is heavier too, not that you're going to carry it around all the time.

According to Hulu, it will be the first live-streaming television service available on the device, which is something like a smart speaker with a touchscreen display attached. Amazon also states that Skype compatibility will arrive soon on the new model.

The virtual assistant designed by the technology company to play music, make calls, answer questions and control smart home devices stopped working for users at around 8am. Some of the Echo devices including Echo Plus, Echo Dot, and Echo Sub are already up for pre-order in India, however, until now there was no information as to when the remaining Echo devices will be launched in the country.

The website logged hundreds of reports about the issue with the speakers, which are powered by Amazon's voice-controlled assistant Alexa.
