Rotates To You
Amazon just announced an all-new Echo Show 10, enabling a more intuitive way to interact with Alexa via voice or video. Priced at $249.99, the Echo device combines a smart speaker with a 10.1-inch screen for watching shows, “asking Alexa”, or video calling. What’s unique about this model is that the screen uses computer vision technology to automatically rotate towards the person issuing commands. That way it should always stay in view no matter where you walk around the room. And a new brushless motor makes it completely silent when it rotates.
As Echo Show 10 moves, so does its dual, front-firing tweeters and powerful woofer, providing premium, directional sound that automatically adapts to your space, making it great for music, videos, and more. Echo Show 10 will also rotate as you watch the news, flash briefings, or TV shows from Hulu + Live TV and Prime Video.
Coming soon, users will be able to watch Netflix simply by asking Alexa, with the ability to search, browse, and stream the entire catalog, including Netflix Originals such as Stranger Things, The Crown, and The Irishman, using just your voice.
Also, later this year, all Echo Show devices will support Zoom and Amazon Chime video conferencing. Just say, “Alexa, join my Zoom meeting,” or “Alexa, start my Chime meeting,” to join a video call.
Ask Alexa to make a video call without worrying about being out of frame—as you move, the screen does too, and the new 13-megapixel, wide-angle camera pans and zooms to keep you at the center of the frame. Plus, with new Alexa Group Calling you can create a group of up to eight friends and family members, and simply say, “Alexa, call my family.”
Echo Show 10 uses advanced computer vision algorithms to help make your home smarter and more secure. When Alexa Guard is in Away Mode, Echo Show 10 can periodically pan the room and will send you a Smart Alert if it detects someone in its field of view. You can also securely access a live feed from another Echo Show device or the Alexa app, with the ability to remotely zoom or pan the display and camera to see the entire room; or set up a Routine that automatically turns on the lights when someone enters the room. Echo Show 10 will use AZ1 to process speech faster and make Alexa more responsive. Plus, its built-in smart home capabilities include support for Zigbee, BLE, and Amazon Sidewalk for devices that stay connected and work great inside and outside your home.
As with all Alexa-enabled devices, Echo Show 10 is designed and built with privacy in mind. It uses a fusion of audio-based localization and computer vision—all processed locally and securely on-device—to power the intelligent motion that keeps the screen facing you or detect someone when in Away Mode. Turn motion off at any time by sliding the built-in camera shutter closed, adjusting settings on-device or in the Alexa app, or just by saying, “Alexa, turn off motion.” Learn more about the science behind the Echo Show 10 experience at Amazon’s Science blog.
Climate Pledge Friendly
Echo Show 10 has earned a self-proclaimed Climate Pledge Friendly badge and is built with 100% post-consumer recycled fabric, 100% recycled die-cast aluminum, and post-consumer recycled plastic. Plus, all wood fiber-based materials used in Echo device packaging are made entirely from responsibly managed forests or recycled sources. In addition to using sustainable materials, all new Echo devices also have a Low Power Mode to intelligently conserve energy during periods of inactivity and deliver energy savings over the lifetime of the device. Later this year, Alexa will help you see the energy consumed by compatible smart home devices through a new personalized energy dashboard in the Alexa app.

Don’t forget about Amazon’s non-screen, less expensive Echo devices. There’s an all-new Echo & Echo Dot arriving October 22, 2020.
