Amazon's Alexa and Echo launch in Mexico


Amazon Music is available as well. Amazon's Alexa is available in numerous countries, but there are still major expansions left to go -- case in point, Mexico. The company has launched both Alexa and its Echo range of smart speakers in the country, complete with a new voice, Mexico-oriented Spanish, local knowledge and the Alexa skills to match. Amazon Music (including both Music Unlimited and Prime Music) is arriving in the country, too, providing millions of tunes as well as locally curated playlists and stations. The regular Echo as well as the Dot, Plus, Spot and Smart Plug are available to pre-order now ahead of a release next week. Music Unlimited is available for MXN$99 a month for individuals (MXN$990 per year if you're a Prime member), or MXN$149 ( MXN$1,490 per year on Prime) for a family plan with up to six people. You can also spend MXN$39 a month if you only intend to listen on a single device.

Amazon launches Echo and Alexa in Mexico


Amazon has brought its Alexa voice assistant and a range of compatible Echo devices to Mexico. The Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Plus, Echo Spot, and Amazon Smart Plug are all available to pre-order today, and shipping will start next week. The company is also bringing Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime Music to Mexico today, right in time for people to ask their new Echo devices to play music. Amazon launched Alexa in Spain last month, but the company says the voice assistant has now been updated to work with Mexican Spanish and makes use of local information. Amazon is the last major company to arrive in this market —Apple started selling the HomePod in Spain and Mexico last month, while the Google Home and Home Mini were released in the two countries back in June.
