Amazon Echo Sidewalk network to share with neighbours

Amazon has announced a new feature that is launching on your Echo device: Amazon Sidewalk.


Amazon Sidewalk is a shared network that helps devices work better. For example, if your device loses its wifi connection, Sidewalk can simplify reconnecting to your router and help set up new Echo devices. Sidewalk can also extend the coverage for Sidewalk-enabled devices, such as Ring Security Cams, outdoor lights, and motion sensors, so they can stay connected and continue to work over longer distances.


When enabled, Sidewalk uses a small portion of your Internet bandwidth to provide these services to you and your neighbors. This setting will apply to all of your supported Echo and Ring devices that are linked to your Amazon account.


Sidewalk is coming to your Echo device later this year, but you can disable this feature at any time from the Amazon Alexa app.


Echo Frames - a pair of titanium-framed glasses that vibrate to provide notifications, and have built-in microphones and speakers to use Alexa, but no display.


"Amazon Sidewalk creates a low-bandwidth network with the help of Sidewalk Bridge devices including select Echo and Ring devices. These Bridge devices share a small portion of your internet bandwidth which is pooled together to provide these services to you and your neighbors. And when more neighbors participate, the network becomes even stronger.


To disable this feature, follow these instructions. You must have the latest version of the Alexa app on your phone to proceed.
