It will cost a little more than usual.
On October 30, sales of the limited series “smart speaker” from Yandex started in red.
From the Yandex.Station presented in May, this one differs not only in design. The new device is distributed by subscription: the user will pay 389 rubles per month for three years. Thus, the final cost of a limited Yandex.Station will be 14004 rubles with a three-year subscription to Yandex.Plus (the usual will cost 9900 rubles with an annual subscription to Yandex.Plus).
Like the usual Yandex.Station, the limited Yandex.Music library and the management of Alice’s voice assistant are available through a limited device — for example, it will help you select a song and increase or decrease the volume. In addition, Yandex.Station is able to recommend tracks based on the user’s musical preferences, and also sets an alarm and reads bedtime stories, checks the weather and traffic jams, tells the news and performs other tasks.
The new limited edition will be sold only on Yandex.Music, the devices will begin to go on sale gradually.
The first batch of “Yandex.Station” went on sale in July and was sold out within 24 hours. But how many devices were in the first batch, the company did not disclose.
