  • Amazon launches Alexa, Echo, and Prime Music in Canada

The Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Plus are all up for pre-order in Canada, so it appears some of the less-popular Echo devices are not going to be available, at least not right now.

The Echo, Echo Plus, and Echo Dot all earned "excellent" ratings in PCMag's reviews. Initially, Canadians will be only be able to purchase the Echo, Echo Plus, and Echo Dot. That has now been corrected, as Amazon has finally launched the Echo family, Prime Music and Alexa Voice services and skills in the land of hockey and poutine.

Amazon has introduced a new English voice for Alexa with a Canadian accent, though even we Canadians aren't exactly sure what that is. "Over 10,000 skills will be available for customers in Canada this year, including skills from Air Canada, TD Bank, TELUS, CBC, The Weather Network, Bank of Montreal, Manulife, Aviva, Yellow Pages, and more". They are currently available in the United Kingdom and India, and now they are up for pre-order in Canada. Amazon said that it expects the devices to start shipping on December 5, while they will also be available in-store at Best Buy, Staples, The Source, TELUS, and a number of other retailers.

Echo is a hands-free, voice-controlled speaker that allows users to access Alexa from anywhere in the room.

Amazon also announced that its Prime Music service is now available in Canada.

There a variety of genres available on Prime Music, plus mixes exclusively featuring Canadian artists, such as "Made in Canada: Rock and Alternative", to "Quebec Country Now", "Acoustic Commute", and "Chanteuse Québécoise.". Prime Music earned a "good" rating in PCMag's review. Now since these are the first Echo devices to launch in Canada, the functionality may be slightly limited, compared to what users in the United States have currently.
