Alexa Updates To Be Smarter Than Ever & To Join Your Conversations

2 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

Amazon has kicked off its hardware event with a plethora of news , including updates that allow Alexa to join conversations and remember things better.
The latter feature is arguably the most intriguing. As demonstrated by Amazon during its event, the AI can now be asked to join in on a conversation. In effect, Alexa can become a third person in the conversation. And that comes complete with awareness regarding when it is - or isn't - being addressed. So it won't interrupt or interject when users don't want it to.
Additionally, the users in the demo didn't need to wake Alexa up again...

Amazon brings Netflix to Echo Show, reveals new Alexa features

Amazon brings Netflix to Echo Show, reveals new Alexa features

2 monthes ago   |   By MobileSyrup

During the company's fall hardware event , Amazon revealed several new Alexa features for all of its Echo hardware and more.
One of the more low-key, yet still important announcement was the fact that Amazon is bringing Netflix to the Echo Show. While most people probably don't watch movies on smart display, official YouTube and Netflix apps were sorely missed when Amazon announced the product, so it's nice to see at least one of them finally make it to the platform.

Ring's flying drone camera, the Always Home Cam, was easily the most surprising hardware announcement at today's Amazon event.

Fly Around & Check Your Whole Home With Ring Always Home Drone Cam

Fly Around & Check Your Whole Home With Ring Always Home Drone Cam

2 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

Amazon-owned Ring is reportedly taking home security in an unexpected direction with a new device dubbed the Always Home Cam. And because the new camera is also a remote-controllable drone, that's effectively any direction at all.
The new Ring Always Home Cam is, when it's docked, an unassuming white box with an LED ring on the front and Ring branding emblazoned in the black lid. The company added a grille over top of the lid, because that's where the propellers are enclosed. But, when undocked, it's a drone-attached security camera that also links into the Ring Alarm system.
