Amazon – Echo Frames

Unlike the first version, with this one officially sold, there are general improvements. The functions and design are the same. What has changed mainly is the autonomy time and some other optimizations in Alexa’s system and security improvement. If you do not know the functions, see the video below:

One of the main points is adjust Alexa audio volume depending on the environment. In quieter places, the pitch will be lower. But, when there is a lot of external noise, the response will be louder, so that it can be heard. The objective was mainly to improve battery life.

Battery life in continuous playback has also increased, by about 60%, according to Amazon. What helped, in addition to the volume control, is the fact that glasses can be turned off. To do this, just turn it upside down for three seconds. Besides that, the microphone can also be turned off, with a dedicated button, just like what happens with Echo smart speakers.

As in the first version presented, the market version also has support for VIP Filter. The user defines his contacts and favorite apps, so that Alexa can prioritize them. Thus, your tasks are not interrupted with each notification received. The alert is only issued if it is something of interest to the user. A novelty is that now group messages can also be prioritized.

There are three color options to choose from. The first is the black classic, but it is also possible to choose one with texture of turtle helmet and another with bluish tone. Amazon has a partnership with LensCrafters, which allows adding degrees of lens, for those who have some vision problem and would already correct with glasses.

The final version is priced slightly higher than the “beta” version. Echo Frames is only available on Amazon in the United States, for US$ 249,99, which is about R $ 1,345, considering only the current currency quote, not including possible fees and taxes.
