Amazon Echo Show: Alexa With a Video Screen

Amazon Echo Show Video Calling

Amazon today introduced a new voice-enabled Alexa personal assistant with a video screen. It is called Echo Show and brings more voice skills to your home including two-way video calling, accessing smart home cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, and more. Any Alexa skills will automatically be available on Echo Show.

The $230 device combines a 7-inch touch screen display, 5-megapixel front camera, and dual speakers approved by Dolby. Echo Show intuitively integrates many features found on tablets with the always-ready intelligence to understand your questions, plus speaker dock-like audio. As the first Echo with a screen, customers can view a lot of the same information they might have previously checked on their smartphone. It can double as an Alarm clock by your bed, or be an extra helper in the kitchen for checking news or watching YouTube videos.

With Echo Show customers can say, “Alexa, show the baby’s room” and have the feed from an Internet connected camera, like Arlo, display on Echo Show. Alexa will understand the customer’s speech, convert it to the directive, and show the video from the requested camera.

Here is the Echo Show introductory video Amazon made to show-off Alexa’s new skills.
