With Apple AirpPods, Pixel Buds and Galaxy Buds, it looks like hearables are in vogue. Now Amazon is joining the bandwagon with wireless earbuds featuring Alexa.
Alexa on your earbuds will provide flash briefings and weather updates as well as help control your smart home and call people. Amazon however would need the assistance of Apple and Google to make this happen. The earbuds will include touch controls to pick songs and attend calls but they won’t have a clip. Amazon will most probably offer a competitive price and is in the process of getting suppliers and manufacturing partners.
The Alexa earbuds will include a charging case that uses standard USB. It will most probably have two color variants – black and grey. According to Bloomberg, Amazon will announce the product by September, in the meantime all we can do is sit tight and wait.
