Amazon Echo Show With Touchscreen Gets Official

Share

The interesting thing, however, is the new touchscreen feature. The e-commerce giant is also discounting its original Echo Smart Speaker.

The touchscreen also lets you control music better, watch video clips, control your smart home (and see items like smart camera feeds), see calendar items, view shopping lists and items you want to buy, and play games.

Now available for pre-order, the Echo Show retails for $230 and will begin shipping on June 28, 2017.

"Alexa, show the front door camera". The Amazon Echo show allows the users to do much more than ever before.

The built-in display adds plenty of new functionality to the incumbent voice-only Echo. A chat icon displayed on the screen of the new device in one of the leaked photographs suggests that it may feature messaging capabilities, perhaps making use of the camera to enable video-calling. Now, reports have claimed that its successor called Echo Show will be available for purchase very soon.

The Show is a radical departure from previous Echo devices as it can provide you with information visually (via its screen) as well as through sound. There's even support for voice and video calls which will work through the Alexa app. The users on the other side can now choose to answer such calls only via voice. Echo Show is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive audio powered by Dolby.

Like Microsoft, Amazon.com came too late to the smartphone market.

The device will potentially play a significant role in Amazon's dominance of the smart speaker market this year, with the company expected to account for over 70% of all smart speakers in the USA in 2017. The company then followed it by introducing the smaller Amazon Echo Dot, called the Echo Tap. The Echo has dominated the space to this point, with 70 percent of the market using Amazon products.
