Amazon's new speaker-cum-assistant device comes with a touch screen input which adds to the charm of Alexa. The 7-inch screen (with an unknown resolution) will show YouTube videos, photos and help users create lists. The device also houses a front-facing camera above the screen and a hefty speaker at the bottom.
The personal digital assistant packs in eight microphones, beam-forming technology and noise cancellation meaning it should be able to hear your voice from any direction - even when music is playing.
Unlike other devices in the Echo range, which focus on streaming music and making phone calls through voice commands, the Echo Show features a built-in 7ins touchscreen to stream videos and view photographs.
The new device will be sold for $229 and ships starting June 28, according to Amazon's website.
The Echo Show is tipped to have a price tag of $229.99 in the U.S., which means in the United Kingdom we might pay around £219.99 or in Europe 239.99€.
It also features a camera to enable video calls between friends and family. The cylindrical speaker uses your Wi-Fi network to connect to the Internet and tap into Amazon's universe of services. It wasn't until months after its United States launch that the original Echo became available in Britain, but it happened eventually. If you want two of them, you can use the promo code SHOW2PACK upon checkout to get $100 off your order. It's pretty insane. It does everything the original Echo does, but it also has a screen that allows Alexa to, well, show you things. These messages will be available in the Alexa app or on your Echo device (a light will glow green to alert you to new messages).
