The Echo Show features everything you love about Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa, with a screen so it can also show you things. Watch videos or view music lyrics, photos, weather forecasts, your to-do lists, and much more. And it’s all hands-free.
Alexa with Visuals
Voice responses from Alexa are now enhanced with visuals and optimised for visibility across the room. Call or message your family and friends who also have an Echo or the Alexa App (available on Fire OS, Android, iOS and desktop). Get the news with a video flash briefing, see your Prime Photos, see lyrics with Amazon Music, browse and listen to Audible audio books, and more. All you have to do is ask. Echo Show has eight microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. Echo Show is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive audio powered by Dolby. When you want to use Echo Show, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo Show responds instantly.
Be Together More
Introducing a new way to be together more with the people who matter most. Make hands-free video calls to friends and family who have an Echo Show or the Alexa App. When you’re busy making dinner, just ask Alexa to place a call from your Echo Show to anyone with a supported Echo device or the Alexa App. You can also enable a new feature called Drop In for the special cases when you want to connect with your closest friends and family. For example, you can drop in to let the family know it’s time for dinner, see the baby’s nursery, or check in with a close relative. With Drop In, you’re always in control: turn it on or off at any time, select who is allowed to drop in on you and choose which devices are available for Drop In. You can also decline Drop Ins.
Help Around the House
Echo Show helps keep you organised at home. Start a timer in the kitchen and watch as it counts down, or easily see and manage your family’s calendar. Sign in to the Alexa App to take your to-do and shopping lists with you. Instantly add an item to your list with Echo and see it in your Alexa App when out shopping.
Voice Control Your Music
Powered by Dolby, Echo Show is fine-tuned to deliver crisp vocals with dynamic bass response and expansive sound. Watch as the display comes alive to show song lyrics, custom stations, curated playlists, and album art with Amazon Music. Listen to tens of millions of songs with Amazon Music Unlimited. With multi-room music support, you can play music across multiple Echo devices simultaneously (Available for Amazon Music and TuneIn. Bluetooth is not supported).
Control Your Smart Home
Use Echo Show to see a live camera feed from the nursery or your front door. Turn up the thermostat or dim the lights from the sofa, all without lifting a finger. Echo Show works with smart home devices such as cameras, lights, thermostats and more from brands such as WeMo, Philips Hue, SmartThings, Netatmo, TP-Link, Hive and others.
Always Getting Smarter
Alexa, the brain behind Echo Show, is built in the cloud, so it’s always getting smarter. The more you use Echo Show, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo Show is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.
Skills add even more capabilities such as ordering a takeaway with Just Eat or pizza from Dominos, requesting a ride from Uber, local searching from Yelp, trying a new recipe from Recipedia, and more. New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about skills in the Alexa App.
