Meet Echo Show – Amazon Echo’s Little and Powerful Brother

Amazon’s Echo product managed to amaze the entire world with a small, yet powerful AI application called Alexa. Alexa is the friendly application that can turn every home into a smart one in just minutes while helping you deal with everyday tasks, talk you through cooking and even set up meetings in your calendar.

Now, it was time for Amazon to step-up and keep up with the competition and that’s why Echo Show came to life.

Show is a small, but powerful 7.4″ x 7.4″ device with a 7 inch display and a 5 MP front-facing camera that makes communication much easier and faster giving a new face to voice controlled systems.

Echo Show will guide you through daily activities using images and videos, it can navigate to YouTube or Amazon Prime Video and even bring your friends up to date through messages or voice calls.

On top of that, Show is available in 2 colors – black and grey and it has control capabilities for a large number of smart devices in your home.

For instance, you should know that Show communicates using Belkin’s WeMo communication protocol. This means that Echo Show will offer you voice control over devices that work with:

  • Lighting and shading
  • Smart locks and access control panels
  • Security video surveillance
  • HVAC and smart thermostats
  • Switches and dimmers

All of these can be done via voice control or through the 7 inch display screen that incorporates a touch panel. In fact, the touch panel brings a whole lot of extensive features including a better shopping experience, visual activities and charts, and HQ voice calls.

Let’s see what else can Echo Show do for your home!

1. Music and Sound

Thanks to a dual 2 inch stereo speaker system Echo Show can provide a HQ listening experience which means better voice calls and clear instructions even in loud environments.

When you talk to Show, it will surely listen because it incorporates a far-field voice recognition backed-up by a built-in 8 microphone array system.

Also, it is good to know that Show comes with support for Prime Music, Pandora, TuneIn and iHeartRadio.

2. Display and Touchscreen

As I said earlier, Echo Show is packed with a 7” display system which is great for galleries, video calls and even ordering new products on Amazon.

The display is the one that makes all the difference in the voice assistants industry, Show being the first ever voice assistant that incorporates a touchscreen into their system.

3. Connectivity & Networking

Just like Echo and Echo Dot, Show will communicate through your home’s wireless system. This will give Echo Show access to all devices in your home including: smart TV’s, smart thermostats, fans and HVAC, multimedia devices and even lighting or light dimmer systems.

On top of that, Show supports Bluetooth and a powerful 802.11a/b/g/n protocols for a faster, more reliable connectivity.

4. Price and Comparison

We are big fans of Echo Show because it embeds a larger number of features than Echo Dot and Echo, but when it comes to price it’s a bit more expensive, as you probably expected.

Show is available for shipping at Amazon for $229.99, but comes packed with the new Alexa and an unbeatable experience alongside 1 year warranty and Amazon support.
