Echo Show

Voice responses from Alexa are now enhanced with visuals and optimized for visibility across the room. Call or message your family and friends that also have an Echo or the Alexa App, get the news with a video flash briefing, see your Prime Photos, shop with your voice, see lyrics with Amazon Music, 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.

I like the look of this and I particularly like the way it is presented in the video below. While I am not convinced, however, that it offers much more than the original Echo in that a screen is not a true necessity, the price does not seem out of this world.

  1. Sort reminds me of the design of the very first Kindle, all weird and angle-y.

    Also that “Drop In” feature where someone else can start a video call without the recipient formally “pickingup” — (meant for elder care, for instance) – though they can abort an incoming call… seems like potential for spying abuse but presumably the whole thing will be opt-in…
