On Tuesday, September 28, Amazon will conduct its annual fall event. The tech giants will unveil new goods and services, but the event will not be live-streamed; instead, Amazon will have an invite-only event.
The following are what Amazon is anticipated to announce at the event.
Amazon tends towards introducing new Echo gadgets at its events, such as the Echo Auto and the rotating Echo Show 10. More speakers are anticipated to be added to the programme for the brand's 2021 event. Fresh product details are scarce but expect a slew of new additions to the roster.
Existing Echo devices are also likely to get new updates this year, with the Amazon Echo Studio, which was last updated in 2019, save from a recent Billie Eilish.
Amazon's voice assistant Alexa is anticipated to receive some big improvements that will improve its usefulness. More features might be added by Amazon to support the remote work and teleconferencing culture. Last year, Amazon added group calling capability for the Echo Show, which gives us an indication as to where Amazon is aiming to improve in the face of Covid.
Amazon's universal language, which will connect different smart IoT systems, has been in the works for some time. The service, however, has been postponed until 2022. Amazon, on the other hand, might provide us with some new information on the subject.
The Ring Always Home Cam, a drone-like house security camera that patrols your home following preset flight patterns, was introduced by Amazon last year. While the device appears to be intriguing and creative, no functional replica has yet been made available for testing. With any luck, Amazon will provide additional information about the Always Home Cam during its autumn event, including more information about the device's capabilities and more specific availability dates.
With the Ring Auto Cam, Ring Car Connect, and Ring Car Alarm, Ring has already made inroads into the car security sector. With just a few words, you can record activities in and around your vehicle, operate your smart home from your automobile, or even contact emergency services. Consider it an Amazon-powered OnStar. Ring's entry into the auto security market is only a natural extension of Amazon Echo Auto.
Ring is expected to introduce many more auto-focused security devices this year, especially as cars become more sophisticated with integrated systems like those found in Tesla models.
The Echo Buds, a set of Alexa-enabled earphones meant to compete with Apple's AirPods, are Amazon's first foray into the audio industry. Although the Echo Buds are less expensive than the Apple AirPods, many consumers don't see the use of having Alexa-enabled headphones if they don't use the smart assistant in their own home.
This would be an excellent opportunity for Amazon to introduce a pair of Bluetooth headphones or earbuds that do not have Alexa. It would enable them to appeal to the audio market without having to include smart technologies. Even though the second generation of Echo Buds was only recently introduced, this is an excellent opportunity for Amazon to announce improvements and incorporate customer input.
Amazon is also expected to discuss more its privacy measures and how it safeguards customer data.
