Amazon have been launching a lot of new products recently which are revolutionizing the usefulness of the Amazon Echo. The Echo Show is one such product that is certainly causing a stir. Here’s why!
The Echo Show is able to showcase everything you like about Alexa, with the new feature to “show” things too. For example, it is possible to watch fantastically clear video flash briefings and view Amazon Video content. Not only this, if you were playing music, it will display lyrics for you to sing along to. It really enhances your Alexa experience and takes it to a new level. Other users have been using Echo Show to view photos and take a look at weather forecasts, as well as display to-do and shopping lists. The device is completely hands free, which makes it particularly easy to use, even for a technological novice.
I particularly like the hands free calling option and it is possible to create video calls with your loved ones. But, for this to work, they need to have their own Echo Spot, Show, or the Alexa App.
With the Echo Show, you can seamlessly and instantly connect to other Echo devices in and around your home. The Show is also fitted with the latest speakers which provide a crisp audio and a fantastic bass.

There are many other ways that you can use the Show. For example, you can ask Alexa to display the front door if someone is ringing the door bell, or you can equip your baby’s room with cameras so you can view them while they sleep to ensure they are ok.
Such is the Echo Show’s adaptabilitly, you can even set the thermostats in your home with the device, our use the Philips Hue lighting system to really drag your house into the 21st century.
