The Amazon Tap is a nice looking device with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant, but the fact that you had to tap on the speaker to summon the voice assistant on the device made a lot of people go for the cheaper Echo Dot version. Amazon today rolled out an over-the-air software update for its portable Amazon Tap that makes the voice-assistant Alexa work without having to tap a button. To enable the new hands-free mode, you’ll need to do that via your Alexa mobile app and it requires the Amazon Tap to be connected to WiFi.

The Bluetooth-equipped Tap that was first introduced last fall, on the same day it announced the Echo Dot, should get about eight hours of continuous battery life even with the new hands-free update. As reported by the Verge, the Amazon Tap speaker will also support Amazon’s “echo spatial perception,” which means you could have a couple Alexa-equipped devices in the same area and the speaker closest to you will respond. If you already one, welcome to the handsfree side.
