The Main Point

If you can never have enough of Alexa, you are going to love Amazon’s latest addition to the Echo lineup. You can now buy the Amazon Echo Frames, a pair of glasses with Alexa built in. These could be somewhat useful, but don’t you think that Alexa already listens to us enough? Now it can hear you wherever you go!

Amazon’s Echo lineup has grown extremely large. They are already on the 4th generation of their original Echo and Echo Dot devices. It feels like they are just putting Alexa into everything at this point. And, the latest Echo device definitely does not change my mind when it comes to that. Amazon now has glasses with Alexa built in, which are called the Echo Frames. This may be the creepiest Echo device yet!

What are the Echo Frames?

The Echo Frames are a pair of glasses with Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant built in. It is as simple as that. You can get most prescription lenses put into them and they are splash proof. There are also a few different colors. Without having Alexa built in, these would just be normal glasses frames. Sadly, these are not yet smart glasses. They don’t have AR or anything built in. Having Alexa with you everywhere could possibly be somewhat useful, though. You can wear the Echo Frames around all day long, as they are light weight and have 14 hours of battery life ( as long as you are just asking Alexa some questions throughout the day and receiving your notifications). If you want to listen to something, such as music or a podcast, then you can only listen for four hours without charging. The Echo Frames are a cool concept, and if you could listen to music longer, they would be great.

What are the uses of the Echo Frames?

There are a few use cases that I can think of for buying the Echo Frames. First of all, you can ask your Echo Frames what the daily news is each day on the way to work. If you have any questions throughout the day, you could just ask Alexa. It is also possible to listen to podcasts or music, but you could only do that for a max of 4 hours. The Echo Frames are also able to give you any notifications that you  receive throughout the day, which could allow you to look at your phone less. If you are just looking to listen to music, though, the Bose Frames are $50 cheaper and only have half an hour less battery life. In Amazon’s case, the Echo Frames allow them to listen to you all day long and figure out what you are interested in. I don’t know if Alexa actually listens to everything you say, but if it does, the Echo Frames are definitely the creepiest Echo device yet.
