The creepiest and most stylish Amazon Echo is now available to everyone

The key feature of the smart glasses is Alexa connectivity, via smartphone Bluetooth, right at a user's temples. This adds to the existing English language support on Alexa. Amazon is finally doing something about that by bringing Fire TV integration to Alexa Routines.

According to Amazon, the experience is available to explore Alexa in Hindi for music, personality, smart home, timers and alarms, weather, news, local search, skills, among other features. The voice assistant doesn't speak with users in Hindi at this moment and is still responding to user queries in English.

Amazon's Echo Frames smart glasses aren't invite-only anymore. This language support will be available starting today on all Fire TV devices in India.

In September, Amazon added Hindi support to the Alexa app on Android and iOS.

Womp, womp. However, if you were one of the few invited to actually buy the Echo Loop, Amazon says it will continue to provide updates and support, though it didn't provide a time frame for how long.

Aside from the Hindi language update, Fire TV devices have also received the ability to be a part of Alexa Routines. You can also control your smart home devices, including changing the temperature on your thermostat.

For example, you could create an Alexa Routine for movie night that would pause the program and turn on the lights for your snack break, and another to again dim the lights and resume the movie when you return. You could then say, "Alexa, I'm back", and Alexa will resume your show and turn off your lights. With the help of Alexa app, one can set up Routines selecting actions. The routines you create are limited to your imagination.

Users can switch to the Hindi language through their Alexa voice remote by navigating to the Fire TV language settings.

Amazon says the new Alexa Routines update is available across all Fire TV devices.
