  • Amazon pushes Alexa privacy with new delete options

There's also a new Multi-room Drop-In feature, including an audio-only mode, and a mode called Alexa Communication for Kids, which turns on a whitelist feature with dual authentication to control who the kids can talk to through the family's Alexa-enabled device. This device is now available for pre-order at $129.

Many owners of smart speakers use the devices primarily to listen to music or stream radio stations or podcasts.

Amazon says that the Echo Buds promise true, hands-free access to Alexa while at the same time delivering premium sound. Amazon is sitting on top of this market and is working to keep its momentum. So if you're ok with inviting your children and their personal data into Amazon's ecosystem get excited.

The new Amazon Echo for 2019 features a fabric design that's very similar to the previous model, only now it comes in "Twilight Blue" too.

The Echo Buds, which cost $130, will last for up to five hours and get an additional 15 hours of life from an included charging case. Users will be able to have them fitted with prescription lenses. But the company didn't stop with earbuds. The ring vibrates a little to let you know Alexa is listening, and whenever you get notifications. Since its commercial introduction in 2014, the system has blossomed into a multibillion-dollar business, attracting a growing group of industrial partners building everything from coffee machines to Christmas trees to cars that can be controlled with utterances received by high-fidelity microphones and interpreted by Amazon's almost unmatched cloud computing power. Amazon says if the Dot is used as an alarm clock, users can now tap to snooze as well. Alexa Loop will also sell in limited quantity for $99.99 during an invite period, then go up to a regular price of $179.99. The The Echo Show 8 has an HD screen and a privacy shutter than can be closed when you aren't using the device. While it's technically still a microwave, this is a more substantial home appliance with more traditional oven features like air frying and convection cooking.

By skipping a camera and display, the Echo Frames can actually be small and discrete. With it, you can scan select packaged foods with the Alexa app and the Smart Oven will cook them automatically.

Alexa is also receiving a few new bells and whistles, including "frustration detection" that can detect when users are starting to lose their nerve with the voice assistant.

Alexa was also enhanced with the ability to tell when people are frustrated with her and try to make nice with the those issuing misunderstood commands.

The feature will roll out first to music requests.

The online shopping giant unveiled wireless earbuds at a Seattle event Wednesday, its first major attempt at getting its Alexa voice assistant outside of homes and worn by customers all day long.
