Amazon Is Apparently Working On True Wireless Earphones With Alexa Support
The popularity of True Wireless buds is at an all-time high, which is apparent from the fact that every major technology brand is launching its own version of truly wireless earphones. For instance, Beats By Dre unveiled its own truly wireless earphones on April 4, which are known as the Powerbeats Pro. Apple, however, holds the top spot when it’s about TWE (truly wireless earphones). Apple’s AirPods have been immensely popular since its launch in the year 2016, and every other brand is just dropping into the race while Apple has already launched an upgraded version of its AirPods. Another upcoming contender is Amazon, which is speculated to unveil its Alexa based True Wireless Earbuds later in 2019.
The upcoming earphones from Amazon are reported to sport a similar design and functionality to Apple’s AirPods but will incorporate a richer quality of sound as compared to its competitor. Sources say that Amazon’s truly wireless earphones, which is the most important project for the company as of now, will support complete Alexa integration. This will help users to check the traffic, weather, order goods and groceries and use other Alexa commands hands-free without even using the smartphone.
As per sources, the upcoming earphones will support gesture control, implying that users can tap the wearables to answer calls and skip through tracks. The earbuds may have improved battery life over the competition because in terms of TWEs, battery life plays a very significant role. Moreover, the Alexa earphones may sport a more ergonomic design, which will help place it above most of the other True Wireless earbuds in the market.
Amazon has previously launched personal audio products in the form of its Echo devices, which have Alexa support. As for detailed specifications and features, no official statement has been made by the American multinational technology giant. However, as mentioned previously, the Truly Wireless Earphones will make their into the market by the end of 2019.
