Amazon Kills Glow Its Ugly Video Calling Gadget For Kids
Amazon has pulled the plug on its Glow feature, which included an 8-inch touch-sensitive display screen and a camera. Users could play games, read books, and video call friends using the Glow app. Glow users could also play along while video calling.
A new video calling gadget for kids is making its debut: the Amazon Glow. This product combines video calling with games by projecting graphics onto a screen that responds to touch. The device was originally available only by invitation, but Amazon rolled it out to the general public in late March. However, six months after it was released, the company has decided to discontinue the product.
Unlike other video calling gadgets, Amazon Glow is designed for interactive video playtime with family and friends. It features an 8-inch LCD teleconferencing display, along with a projector. The device also has an app that lets you remotely interact with the playspace projected on the screen.
