Software update 1.97 - Morning Briefings and Lenscast Android

Morning Briefings

Master your mornings with Morning Briefings on Focals. This Now Moment gives you an overview of what you can expect from your day - before you even head out the door.

See the day’s forecast, your first calendar event, and a commute estimate as soon as you wake your display in the morning.

If you’re signed in with your Amazon Alexa account in the Focals app, you can also catch up with your news from your Morning Briefing. Click the Now Moment to launch an Alexa Flash Briefing on Focals.


Customize what news sources you listen to for your Flash Briefing from your Alexa app’s Settings.

A Morning Briefing animates on Focals, saying 'Good morning Samantha'.

Click your Morning Briefing to have Alexa play your news from Focals.


Customize news sources in the Alexa app.

Lenscast for Android

Lenscast places your Focals display on top of your phone's live camera feed, making it easy to share screenshots or show your friends what you see on Focals.

We initially launched Lenscast for iPhone users in a previous update, but now it’s available on Android, too.


With Focals connected, select Lenscast to start Lenscast. Use Loop to cycle through views.
