Echo Flex is an low-priced way to put Alexa in any outlet

"Across our major global markets, we've already implemented a range of initiatives from online scheduling systems - which enable our people to take greater control of their working hours - to the use of gamification and augmented reality in the delivery of our core training programs".

Amazon kicked off its big media event on Wednesday by introducing new features for its popular Alexa voice assistant, including an option to auto delete voice recordings in an apparent attempt to address recent privacy concerns.

While the price tag of the Echo Studio is decidedly heftier than the company's other devices, it's competitive with other players in the arena like Sonos, which sells most base models around a similar price. Amazon says the device can last for a full day on a single charge and requires just 90 minutes for a total battery refill.

Amazon also teased two more products in the pipeline: Echo Frames, prescription smart glasses with Amazon Alexa inside, and Echo Loop, a smart ring. The feature will roll out first to music requests. Amazon is sitting on top of this market: Canalys reports Amazon shipped a quarter ofthese speakers, or an estimated 6.6 million between April and June.

Amazon said the Echo Frames are created to look and feel like regular eyeglasses.

With a 5.25-inch woofer, and 330W of power, the Echo Studio promises to produce "deep, rich bass", according to Amazon.

A speaker might help customers stay loyal to other services such as Apple Music, Apple Watch, Apple TV and AirPods. Pair it with the $29.99 Echo Glow, a smart light that works with Alexa and supports different colored lights for kids (or adults, really) and arrives November 20.

Amazon Echo uses Microsoft's Bing search engine to provide additional information, while Google Home uses the company's own Google Search.

Google's Assistant software is also able to answer follow-up questions on the same topic, in a near-conversation style, but Echo as yet can not.

There's a new Amazon Echo, promising increased volume and a fabric design, an Echo Dot with a clock, an Echo Show 8 with an 8-inch HD display, the Echo Glow smart lamp and the Echo Flex, a plug-shaped Alexa device for adding a tiny Alexa to any wall socket.

A light comes on to remind you that it's listening.
