Amazon has announced the release of updated Echo Frames smart glasses. The company also discontinued the Echo Loop smart ring today.

Today, we’re excited to announce Echo Frames are advancing from Day 1 Editions and are now available to all customers with no invite required. With Echo Frames generally available, we have also decided that Echo Loop will not advance beyond the Day 1 Editions program, with production and sales ending. We learned a lot about how customers want to use Alexa for short, snackable content throughout the day, and we will take that with us as we continue to invent new customer experiences. Customers who purchased Echo Loop will continue to receive updates and support, and can use their devices as they do today.

Echo Frames, now even better
The all-new Echo Frames have improved audio quality, longer battery life, new colors, and features that make it easier than ever to interact with Alexa throughout your day. The updated Echo Frames improve upon our open ear audio technology, offering richer and fuller sound compared to the previous version, so your music and Alexa’s voice are even clearer. The volume can now be set to automatically adjust at the start of playback based on the noise level of your environment and your selected listening profile—increasing the volume in noisier environments and lowering the volume in quieter environments. Echo Frames still include VIP Filter—a feature that allows you to choose the apps and contacts you want to hear from, while filtering out the rest. We’ve added support for calendars and group messaging, further enabling you to keep your phone in your pocket without worrying about missing an important update. As before, Echo Frames can also be used with native smartphone assistants on iOS and Android with a simple long press of the temple. And it’s now even simpler to fulfill your lens prescription by visiting any LensCrafters location.

Customers told us they wanted a choice of colors, so Echo Frames will come in three color options: Modern Tortoise, Horizon Blue, and Classic Black. They are lightweight, splash resistant, and great for daily use with eyewear grade TR-90, carbon fiber, and titanium. Based on feedback, we improved the battery life—now up to 40% longer for continuous playback than the previous generation at 60% volume. And to help maximize battery life, we are introducing a new feature that turns off your frames when they’re placed upside down for three seconds.

As with all Echo devices, Echo Frames are designed and built with privacy at the foundation. The microphones are made to respond to the voice of the person wearing the frames and can easily be turned off with a quick double-press of the action button. When the microphones are off, the light indicator will turn red.

Echo Frames come with non-corrective lenses and are compatible with most prescription lenses. Prescription lenses can be fulfilled by any LensCrafters location or your preferred eyewear professional.

Check with your insurance provider for more details.
