Amazon may unveil new Echo devices, Alexa updates and more on September 28

The company has sent out invites to its fall hardware event, which will take place next week.

What you need to know

  • Amazon has announced an event scheduled for September 28.
  • The event will supposedly see the unveiling of a wide range of devices including new Echo speakers, Ring security cameras, and Eero routers.
  • Alexa and other services from the retail giant might also get some updates.

Amazon's Echo devices and Alexa digital assistant are about to get some upgrades. The retail giant is set to hold an event on September 28, where it is expected to announce upgrades to some of the best Alexa speakers and new updates to its services.

As expected, Amazon's invitation lacks specific details. The announcement for the event, which has been posted on its website, only says it will "share news on our latest Amazon devices, features, and services."

That said, Amazon's hardware unveiling last year may provide some clues about what the upcoming event might hold for consumers. Of course, the company is expected to announce a plethora of new devices ranging from new Echo speakers to Eero routers and Ring security cameras. Amazon could also announce updates to its services including Alexa, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Luna and Amazon Music.

Amazon may also give some updates about the Ring Always Home Cam that debuted last year but has yet to hit the market. The camera is equipped with enclosed propellers and a privacy-guard dock, built to automatically fly through your home to check out specific locations.

During last year's proceedings, Amazon's Ring division virtually stole the show. In addition to the Ring drone, the company introduced the Ring Car Connect, which allows Tesla owners to remotely monitor the security cameras in their vehicles. This security device, like the Ring Always Home Cam, has yet to become available to consumers.

The virtual event scheduled for next week will be invite-only. This means there will be no public livestream, but we'll keep an eye out for any announcements from Amazon.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
