Amazon Pay users in India can now use voice command with Alexa to pay their utility, internet, mobile and satellite cable TV bills, the e-commerce giant said on Wednesday. This is the first time, the company said, it is pairing these functionalities with Amazon Pay in any market.

The e-commerce giant, which competes with Walmart’s Flipkart in India, said any Alexa-enabled device such as the Echo Dot smart speaker, the Fire TV Stick dongle or headphones from third-party vendors will support the aforementioned feature in India.
