Amazon Fire TV users can now converse with Alexa in Hindi.

Amazon says these two use cases would address activities that, according to a Morning Consult survey it commissioned, are already common in the U.S. The survey found that 75% of U.S. consumers pause their TV show or movie at least once per night to grab a snack or a drink, and 32% said they fall asleep watching movies and TV shows more in 2020 compared with past year. The glasses were first introduced in September 2019 at the company's annual devices event in Seattle. They were announced as a "Day One" product, made in limited quantities and only available via a special invitation.

Amazon revealed that in a survey that 75 percent of US respondents said they pause their show or movie at least once per night, so being able to easily pause your TV through Alexa routines could come in handy for a lot of people. Meanwhile, Echo Loop, a smart ring with Alexa support, is being discontinued.

Crucially, the Echo Frames are now available to everyone in the U.S., suggesting Amazon is confident it can make a mainstream success of a device that puts Alexa on our faces. Amazon says it's 50 percent more powerful than the previous-gen stick, which means faster streaming in Full HD. There is also support for calendars and group messaging on the second-generation Echo Frames. Read about the new Echo Frames below. Production and sales are ending, but Amazon says that customers' Loops will keep working as they do now and will continue to receive updates and support. That way, you won't be annoyed (and the battery won't be drained by) a constant stream of unnecessary notifications; only calls and messages from your most important contacts will come through. Originally released in Classic Black, they'll now be available in Modern Tortoise and Horizon Blue. They go up for pre-order today and will be shipping by December 10th. Owners of the original model can upgrade for $70.
