Amazon Echo Show Unveiled

20 May, 2017, 04:39 | Author: Nadine Todd

The Amazon Echo Show was revealed today for $230 United States dollars and with all the fancy features of voice assistant Alexa and more.

Amazon has finally debuted the latest version of its popular line of home automation devices, Echo, after months of speculation.

Amazon says that Alexa can now finally also show you things, thanks to the Echo Show's display.

As reported earlier, Amazon on Tuesday, has finally introduced the Echo Show. The Echo Show details will be posted as soon as it became available in the market. This means that existing Echo and Echo Dot owners will be able to call and message other Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show owners. Pretty much anything you'd rather see than be told. The difference is that the Echo Show features a screen, which allows users to make and receive video calls.

As with most things Amazon is doing in this space, we can probably expect Amazon to roll this feature out in the United States first.

The Echo Show features a 7-inch touchscreen display will be available in white or black and will launch on June 28 for $229.99. The smart speaker which arrived with Alexa has since gotten smaller variants like the Echo Dot and the new Echo Look. You can stream YouTube videos, photos and other visual contents using its decent screen. To make sure that the user's voice is heard, the Echo Show comes with eight microphones, noise cancellation, and beam-forming technology. The more you use Alexa, the more she adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. The popularity of virtual assistants across all device types is also expected to grow this year, with 23.1% more usage of assistants like Alexa, Siri, Google Now and Cortana.
