Amazon, the American multinational technology company, announced that it is adding Alexa to its Ring Video Doorbells Pro smart doorbell, giving it the ability to interact with people when they visit your house. According to The Verge, the feature introduced by Amazon is named 'Alexa Greetings' and will be available to the users if they will have opted for Ring Protection subscription which is available at $3 (approximately Rs. 220) per month. With the new feature, Alexa will be able to ask questions to the visitors and will also allow them to leave a video recording as a message. Not only this but in case a delivery person will ring the bell, the robotic doorbell will be able to guide them on where to leave the packages.
However, it is unclear if Alexa will bring any additional functionalities beyond automating the process of taking video messages and directing deliveries. Amazon also announced a 'Quick Replies' feature, which should work on most of its doorbells without needing that subscription, though the company's cheapest doorbell, the $60 (approximately Rs. 4,350) Ring Video Doorbell Wired, isn't getting that feature either.
