Amazon Alexa outage: Voice-activated devices are down in United Kingdom and beyond

Amazon has increasingly been pushing for the voice assistant to form the central hub of any smart home - and an outage like this could prevent consumers from controlling a myriad of devices.

Alexa is front and centre when it comes to the Echo range, as Amazon's digital assistant is the primary way to interact with the devices.

As of now, Amazon India has made the new Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot and the Echo Sub available for pre-order.

A total of 4 men face charges in the murder - Michael Boatwright, Trayvon Newsome, Dedrick Williams, and Robert Allen . As previously reported , the suspects snatched a Louis Vuitton sack and $50k in cash.

Overall, the changes are physical with the Echo Dot, which Amazon claims is its best-selling smart speaker in the country which is understandable.

The website logged hundreds of reports about the issue with the speakers, which are powered by Amazon's voice-controlled assistant Alexa. Let me introduce with all the new devices of Amazon. For those of you hit by the outage, a reminder: with Alexa offline the switches on the walls turn on the lights and you can still look out of the window to see what the weather is like. Hulu already supports Alexa on Fire TV, enabling users to pull up the app and specific content using voice commands.

Of course, if you will get a Subwoofers with your Echo-speakers it will sound really good, therefore Amazon has made a pair with other Echo speakers.
