Echo Show is looking to show you what other Alexa devices used to just tell you.
Joining the family of Amazon devices powered by the company’s ever learning AI assistant, Alexa, the Echo Show is the first of the line to introduce visual display to the range.
The Echo Show is the latest addition to Amazon’s Echo line of listen and respond smart hubs.
While the original members of the Alexa-powered lineup such as he Echo, Dot and Tap have been audio-only, Echo Show is breaking the mould, bringing the ability to see (and be seen) through the integration of a camera and display.
Utilizing Dolby powered speakers and eight microphones, the Echo Show is just as competent as the audio-centered Echo when it comes to listening and being heard.
As well as offering the ability to make and take video calls, the Echo Show’s 7-inch screen is also able to display video clips from services such as YouTube and of course, Amazon.
Another bonus of pairing up camera and screen with the pre-existing feature set of the Echo range is the ability to use the Show for connecting to other smart devices throughout the home, from baby monitors through to smart security cameras.
One of the biggest selling points of the Show however, is undoubtedly the ability to make video calls to other Echo Show owners, alongside the introduction of voice calling between Echo devices.
