    Xiaomi launched the new 10000mAh and 20000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i as ‘Made in India’ power banks back in November last year for Rs. 799 and the 20000mAh Mi Powerbank 2i is priced at Rs. 1499, however the company increased the price of the power banks by Rs. 100 in April this year without giving a proper reason for the hike.  After the GST rate cut from 28% to 18% on Lithium-ion batteries used in power banks that came into effect from today, July 27th, Xiaomi has reduced the price of the power banks, that are now back to original launch price. This is definitely a welcome move. Other than the name, the design and specifications of the new Mi Power Bank 2i are similar to the old ones, but the dimensions are slightly different. Both these come with two-way fast charging and low-power mode that can be activated by pressing the power button twice, to charge devices like Mi Band and Mi Bluetooth headset. The 10000mAh Mi Powerbank 2i has a metal design and the 20000mAh Mi Powerbank 2i comes with ABS plastic body for a better grip. Mi.com is selling the power banks at new price. Source

    Amazon is introducing a new feature called 'Alexa Cast' which will let users control the songs or media that is playing on Alexa-enabled devices from their phone. However, it only works with Amazon Music app to control music playback at the moment. It might eventually bring the ability to control playback of music, movies, podcasts, and more.  As you would expect, Alexa Cast only works with Alexa-enabled devices like Echo speakers, third-party Alexa products, and some of Amazon’s Fire devices. Once you are done updating, Amazon Music app on iOS and Android will include an icon for Alexa Cast on the Now Playing screen. Once you tap on it, you will get a list of all Alexa-enabled devices that you use and select which one to start playing music on.

Sahas Malhotra, Director, Amazon Prime Music India said: Alexa Cast is set to make the music streaming experience for Prime members even simpler with its integration ...
