Amazon's newest kid-friendly Echo is basically a talking nightlight

Amazon Wants To Let Users Access Alexa Cortana and Other Assistants On A Single Device

Amazon announced a bunch of new products and features of its line of Echo speakers today, including an "Echo Studio" which offers high-end audio to go with the company's new Amazon Music HD streaming service, and some new upgrades to Alexa, its virtual assistant. Amazon will supply the Echo Frames with clear plastic lenses, but has designed them to be fitted with prescription lenses or tinted lenses if you'd rather have smart sunglasses. It's $29.99 and customers in the United States can preorder it now. The tiny new $60 Echo Dot now has a convenient digital clock.

There have been long-standing rumors that Amazon would be diving into the wireless earbud game at some point soon, and during the company's massive hardware event on September 25, that's exactly what happened.

To ease us into things Amazon announce some expected upgrades to existing Echo products.

Stay tuned for more coverage from Amazon's devices event. Some of you may also be invested in the Alexa ecosystem, and so this stuff might be a future purchase.

They include Bose's Active Noise Reduction Technology to cut down on ambient noise and have built-in microphones. There are also three midrange speakers on the left, right, and top of the device.

In April, Bloomberg News reported that Amazon had a team of people in offices around the world charged with reviewing a small sample of the consumer voice recordings picked up by Alexa, a practice the company didn't explicitly disclose.

The £189.99 Studio comes with five built-in directional speakers, which enable 3D audio - so the sound appears to be coming from all around the listener - using Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio. Due on sale in October, the Echo Buds will cost £120 ($129), a nice saving on the likes of the Apple AirPods and plenty of the best wireless earbuds on the market. For Frames, they offer hands-free access to Alexa for making calls and setting reminders, and you can also receive notifications/alerts via the frames.

Echo Frames will be available for $179.99 during the invite-only period. You can set up a VIP list to control what notifications, messages, and alerts get piped through.

You can request your invitation below. According to Amazon, the oven is somewhat spacious, with enough room to cook a 5-pound chicken. The box features convection oven, microwave, air fryer, and food warmer.
