Apple App Store in October. Within a week of launch, Call of Duty Mobile became the most popular game in India. At last count, there were nearly 14 million downloads of the game in the country. Little surprise in the numbers as Call of Duty actually makes PUBG look boring.

The game offers realistic and visually-appealing graphics without any lags. Overall, the gameplay is faster as there is less talking and more shooting. Also, Call of Duty Mobile lets players be in the shoes of highly-trained and equipped commandos unlike the fancy dress competition in PUBG Mobile with old weaponry. Be it gliding to take cover or firing automatic rifles such as PDW-57 or SAM Turrets, Call of Duty Mobile puts you right into a modern-day battlefield.

Will Alexa improve, learn new skills? "Right from the start, Alexa will have 10,000 'skills' or capabilities in India. More will keep getting added," said Limp.

Starting October 4, customers can sign up for an 'invite' on Amazon India - the invite is guaranteed and allows you to purchase one of the three Echo devices.

Devices will only start shipping October 30 onwards. For these early Echo users, Amazon Prime Music will be available as a preview while it launches for everyone else later.

This is the latest version of Amazon's smart, connected speaker. It's powered by Alexa, their cloud-based smart service that can answer questions, create timers, set reminders, create to-do lists, check your calendar, tell you jokes, control smart appliances, play music, check the weather and so on. Alexa learns from you and now speaks in an Indian English voice. It also provides an Indian experience - something the Amazon team has been working on for over a year now. For instance, this means th ..
