Amazon Echo Frames get two new color options, more personalized features

The Echo Frames are now available in 13 different color and lens combinations.

What you need to know

  • Amazon has introduced new color options and features to make its Echo Frames smart glasses "more adaptive and stylish."
  • Echo Frames are now available in two new modern colors: Quartz Grey and Pacific Blue.
  • Echo Frames users can also now make a phone call by long-pressing the touchpad with the new "Top Contact" feature.

Amazon on October 27 announced the addition of new colors and features to its Echo Frames smart glasses, making them "more adaptive and stylish." It is also rolling out a few new features that will make it easier for users to stay connected.

You can now get the Echo Frames in two new colors — Quartz Grey and Pacific Blue with prescription-ready, sunglasses, or blue-light-filtering lenses. Along with the new colors, the Modern Tortoise Echo Frames are now available with sunglasses or blue-light-filtering lens options. Thanks to these new additions, the Echo Frames now come in 13 different color and lens combinations.

While the Echo Frames already allow users to take calls, Amazon is now making the experience even better with a new feature called Top Contact. It lets you quickly make a phone call to your priority contact just by long-pressing the touchpad on Echo Frames.

The ability to send text messages hands-free with Echo Frames, which was limited to the best Android phones until now, will be available on iOS smartphones as well in the coming months. Amazon has also made updates to the Auto Volume feature, which means volume will now adjust dynamically throughout a media session based on ambient noise.

Thanks to a new Sleep Mode, your Echo Frames can now automatically turn on when you wear them and enter a low-power mode as soon as you turn them upside down. Additionally, Amazon now lets users change the wake word on Echo Frames to "Echo" from device settings in the Alexa app.

Amazon says the new Echo Frames colors and lens options will begin shipping to customers November 10. While Echo Frames with prescription-ready lenses are priced at $250, Echo Frames with polarized sunglass or blue-light-filtering lenses will be available for $270.

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
