At its recent Amplify Partner Conference, HP Inc. announced new products and solutions to usher in more hybrid work solutions for both businesses and staff.

As part of this drive, HP is taking advantage of the Poly acquisition to introduce some new communications products.

On the heels of the recently announced Poly Voyager Free 60 series of earbuds, HP is now introducing an entry-level model, the Poly Voyager Free 60. Designed for use with mobile devices and coming with a standard charge case, it rounds out the series to include three versions: the Poly Voyager Free 60, Poly Voyager Free 60 UC, and Poly Voyager 60+ UC. While the Poly Voyager Free 60 UC and 60+ UC versions are certified for Microsoft Teams and Zoom, all models are compatible with leading audio and video conferencing applications.
