During its Devices and Services event on Thursday, Amazon’s Dave Limp, SVP of Devices, recommitted the company’s commitment to The Climate Pledge and announced a pair of new energy saving features for its wall-powered Echo and Fire TV equipment.
First, all new Echos and Fire TVs will now offer a Low Power Mode, which drastically reduces the device’s electrical consumption when engaged. Additionally, those new Echos and Fire TVs will be constructed from 100 percent recycled aluminum and post-consumer recycled fabric. You’ll be able to spot them via the new “Climate Pledge Friendly” badge on the products Amazon page. Existing Echos and Fire TVs will be get their own low power modes in the coming weeks as Amazon rolls out an OTA update for them.
