Amazon also announced that Alexa-equipped Echo Frames are getting an update and are no more in beta. The device marks the second generation of the product, which had a limited launch previous year.

Available now for $249.99 and shipping on December 10, Echo Frames come with non-corrective lenses and are compatible with most prescription lenses, according to Amazon.

But while the ring, called Echo Loop, didn't make the grade, an updated version of the Echo Frames has just launched, with new features, improved performance and a higher price, up from $180 to $250.

The updated Echo Frames have been priced at $249.99, which is roughly around Rs.18,500 and are up for sale at United States, although their worldwide availability is not clear till now.

These new smart glasses from Amazon come in three color options - Modern Tortoise, Horizon Blue, and Classic Black.

With the Echo Frames, you can settle on decisions, set updates, tune in to digital broadcasts, add things to your daily agenda, get the news, or control your shrewd home gadgets while leaving your ears revealed. Echo Frames, as per the company, give users prescription-ready eyewear with open-ear audio and hands-free access to Alexa. This filter only alerts users when they receive notifications from specific apps and contacts that the user chooses. Another battery improvement comes from an "auto-off" features - if you put the frames upside-down for three seconds, they'll automatically power down. Amazon says the microphone is created to only hear the wearer's voice, and can be muted with a double-press of a button. 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.

The glasses can also be used to create reminders or perform actions via voice commands, including answering cell phone calls. Now, based on feedback from those "Day 1" invite-only users, Amazon is updating its smart glasses and killing off its smart ring.
