Amazon's Echo Frames are now available for anyone to buy, and are getting improvements in audio quality, a longer battery life, new colours, and more features. Amazon announced that the Alexa-equipped Echo Frames are getting an upgrade, and are no longer in beta. Amazon said that the battery life of the upgraded Echo Frames has improved; it is now up to 40 percent longer. As per the listing on Amazon, the Echo Frames deliver two hours of talk time and Alexa interactions, or non-stop media playback of four hours, on a full charge. A new feature also turns off the frames when they are placed upside down for three seconds, which will further help in increasing battery life. The updated Echo Frames will offer richer, fuller sound through an improved open-ear technology, according to Amazon.
The volume can now be set to automatically adjust at the start of playback based on your selected listening profile and environment noise level. With the Echo Frames, you can make calls, set reminders, listen to podcasts, add things to your to-do list, get the news, or control your smart home devices while leaving your ears uncovered. The upgraded Echo Frames are priced at $249.99 and are up for sale in the US. Amazon's Echo Frames are now available in three colour options: Modern Tortoise, Horizon Blue, and Classic Black.
