Crucially, the Echo Frames are now available to everyone in the USA, suggesting Amazon is confident it can make a mainstream success of a device that puts Alexa on our faces. Last year, the retailer released the glasses, dubbed Day 1 Edition, as part of an invite-only experimental program. There is also support for calendars and group messaging on the second-generation Echo Frames.

The new Echo Frames are available to pre-order in the U.S. for $249.99 now, and will begin shipping on December 10. While the Echo Loop will cease production and sales, however, users of the Echo Loop will continue to receive updates and support.

The upgraded Echo Frames are priced at $249.99 (roughly Rs. 18, 500) and are up for sale in the U.S., although their global availability is not clear as of now.

The three color options for Echo Frames are black, black with a blue lower half, or black with a so-called tortoise pattern, as used by designed glasses. Apart from offering hands-free access to Alexa, the Echo Frames will also continue to work as the native voice assistant on both iOS and Android smartphones.

Lastly, you can now extend your battery life even further by using Auto Off, which automatically powers down the Echo Frames when being placed upside down for three seconds. The product also has a microphone so that the user can send commands to the voice assistant.

Echo Frames arrive to be an easy and quick way for the user to have contact with Alexa.

The Echo Frames come with non-corrective lenses and are compatible with most prescription lenses. In case you're new to this whole smart home game, Amazon's got a handy guide to help you get started with these Routines.
