All of the announcements from Amazon's crazy fall event

Smart Home
It was on just [INAUDIBLE] so many things. They usually do this in a fall event, and this year was no different. They were just rattling off new features and new devices. There is an all new Echo that's a sphere now. And there is the Ring, always home camera Which is a security camera and a drone that's gonna fly around your place. I'm serious. That's a device that they announced. So we're gonna go over those two and everything else right now [MUSIC] [SOUND] So let's start with the ring always home camera, which feels like it's almost an April Fool's joke, but it's real. It's a security camera and a drone that's meant to fly through your house. On preset paths, but Amazon is saying the right things, that when it's docked, it's not recording. And it's not gonna be spying on anybody because while it's flying, it's gonna be making a little buzzing sound. It's 249.99, so it's 250 bucks. It's coming out in 2021, 1080p. And it's a really cool concept that I am flabbergasted by. Usually we have some idea of what they're going to announce but my goodness drone camera so in addition to the drone camera that flies through your house ring is announcing three different car products, the car alarm, the car cam and the car and next The car cam is fairly robust. It's meant to shoot both ways simultaneously. So it's able to see out the front of your windshield and back to record the cabin of your car. And then it'll automatically start recording if it senses an accident. Or if you give a command that you're being pulled over, it responds and uses Amazon's assistant and so it can help you capture these events. To the cloud without needing a whole lot of input on your part, and it is going to require an LTE subscription. The ring car alarm worked, it's just gonna be able to attach to a port in your car. And then if it detects someone trying to break in like there's movement when there shouldn't be, it's going to be able to sound your car's alarms. The Kinect is going to bring these devices into an after market device that's going to plug into the mechanics of your car rigs partnering with Tesla on the first version of this, but basically it's going to use the cars own systems to do similar functionality of the car alarm and the car cam. Amazon's goal here is to work with car manufacturers to have all this stuff built in moving forward. To start, it's an aftermarket device. Alright, alright enough about ring stuff. Let's talk the actual Amazon stuff and the Amazon Echo. This is not one of the new devices. It's the amazon echo dot that I just had sitting around here. But they did announce three new echo products. The flagship Amazon Echo is getting a complete design revamp. Its spherical. It's gonna come in three different colors. It looks like a brand new device and they're keeping the price point at a reasonable $100. while integrating some of that adaptive audio they were doing on some of their higher end smart speakers. There's going to be a Zig Bee hub built in, so your smart devices will be able to talk directly with your smart speaker. So it looks like they're bringing the higher end of their lineup. Compacting it into this one device and it's still going to be affordable. So the new Amazon Echo seems like a pretty good deal. There's also the new Echo Dot and the Echo Dot with clock. There aren't a whole lot of details about these yet. We know that the.is $50 the dot with clock is 60. And it looks like they're going to for the most part have the functions of the existing dot the existing dot with clock, except that they're spheres. Now Amazon's moving into the wind and spheres for sci fi reasons, I guess. I don't know. They look good. And the new design choice could help mix things up. There's also a kids edition coming out and those look adorable with some like tiger skins. In addition to the devices, Amazon's rolling A whole bunch of new functionality for the assistant. I'm avoiding saying your name so I don't wake your devices. And speaking of the kids edition, Amazon is going to allow kids profiles now. So if it recognizes the voice. Of your child, it will respond with friendly kid friendly responses. So a revamp of Amazon's assistant to make it smarter in addition to a whole new eco lineup with spheres meet. Rolling right along, Amazon's got the fire TV stick. They've had this before. It's a very popular product. It's now more powerful with a price which is kind of cool. It's bringing HDR Dolby Atmos processing speeds, blah, blah blah blah. It seems cool, but they're also debuting a fire TV stick light which is only 30 bucks. Still has all the same streaming capabilities, and that's a pretty good price point for a streamer, and supposedly, along with these new devices and the revamped TV stick, they're rolling out controls for the assistant to make everything more streamlined and easily understandable, and they're rolling out a gaming service to compete with X Cloud and Stadia. It's called Luna. And how it works is you're going to subscribe to channels like the Luna plus channel is one with games curated by Amazon. One of the big titles they showed off was the action thriller. Troll, and they're partnering with game publishers. The one they announced was Ubisoft and they'll have their own channels. So you'll be able to play the upcoming Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and all of these things on the streaming service. And we know that the Luna plus is going to cost 499 a month. Which is pretty affordable and they're also debuting a controller for it instead of connecting to a device like the fire TV stick or your phone or wherever you're playing your game, the control, or is gonna connect directly to Amazon's cloud services. And what they claim is that this will drastically reduce the latency. Which could be really cool if you're playing a competitive multiplayer game and a shooter, a latency can make all the difference in getting that headshot. And it does seem priced reasonably well to compete with the similar services from Google, which is stadia and Microsoft, which is x cloud. So it's brand new. And it was just announced today and so it's all gonna come down to the lineup of actual games and the performance, and we need some more pricing info in terms of those other channels and other game partnerships. But the competition in this space can only be a good thing if you're interested in widely available video games. AMS Amazon has a new smart display called the echo show 10 it's going to cost 249 99 it's going to cost 250 bucks. And the big thing is refined video calls, because it's going to sit on a little platform. It kind of looks like a Facebook portal only with less Facebook baggage so good. And it's gonna Pan and Tilt to follow you as you make your video calls so it can keep you in frame. And apparently it's not using any facial recognition, which is sort of a subtle shot at the nest hub max. Similar feature facial recognition. This one's going to pan and tilt to follow you along, keep you in frame. And supposedly they've really done a lot of work on the motor to make that action super silent. We'll see, we didn't actually get to see it too much in action, but it would be cool. It would be weird. If you're hearing Humming sound when it's trying to do that, anyway, it's going to have a 13 megapixel camera and it's going to have a lot of the other stuff that makes the echo show cool and appealing. Smart Home controls it's going to have a built in ZigBee hub so you can connect to your low power smart home devices. And new smart display kind of a cool refresh design that should make video calls more interactive. And it's gonna be rolling out along with support for multi party video calls. All the more important while we're all stuck at home, obviously, all right bringing it home the Wi Fi company that Amazon Owens is rolling out new mesh routers that work with Wi Fi six. That means they'll be able to connect To 75 plus devices simultaneously, so more robust Smart Home stuff able to stream on a bunch of devices. That's the premise and with mesh, you're gonna be able to set up the point Points throughout a large home to keep signal flowing into all different corners and all different rooms. This one has a ZigBee hub built in so you'll be able to connect your smart home devices. It's powered by a USB C port frustration free setup. It has auto sensing gigabit ports. The devices sound pretty cool, if you're looking for that router upgrade and you want that combination of spread mesh signal with the newer innovations of Wi-Fi six. And finally Amazon is upgrading the guard program called A word guard to be a word guard plus. So what that means is now your smart speaker can detect the sound of say glass breaking and send you an alert. Now it's going to be in tune for more types of sounds like Footsteps, when it thinks everybody is sleeping or doors opening and closing, and you'll be able to sign up for a monitoring service, and be able to make hands free calls to emergency services. And we know this is actually going to roll out to some of Amazon's Smart Home partnerships, like Abode is upgrading their system with the Guard Plus So a more advanced home security system built right into your smart speakers. Seems like a pretty good idea. And that will do it. That is everything that Amazon just announced in their event. I am I'm 90% sure I didn't miss a dang thing out of their 18 million various announcements. So it was a big event. It's exciting. It's a little scary having cameras chasing you through the house and Fears. I don't know why it's fears or scary, but follow me along here. Anyway, lots of devices and we're going to be finding out more about them in the coming days and weeks. So stay tuned to the channel. And look for the reviews once the devices are available, thank you for watching. If you enjoyed the video please like and subscribe. [MUSIC]
