With the launch of Luna, Amazon has also introduced Echo and Echo Dot speakers, a flying video camera from its Ring home security unit. The flying video camera has been named Ring Always Home Cam from Amazon.
For the flying camera, Amazon also announced that the Ring Home Always Cam will only record videos on flights. Many have criticised Amazon for introducing the camera that records on flights. When it comes to speaker sales, Amazon is way ahead from its rivals Apple Inc. and Google.
A few weeks ago, Amazon had also introduced the Halo Band and a wellness tracker. The wellness tracker also has the ability to assess inner health by analysing the tone of a speaker's voice.
