As rumoured earlier, Amazon has officially introduced its next generation smart speaker. The Amazon Echo Show includes a 7-inch touchscreen that allows users to have a new way to interact with Amazon’s AI personal assistant Alexa. The main highlight of the new device is ability to make and receive video calls over the internet.
You can also limit interaction with Alexa by simply turning the mic/camera button off. Other features include lyrics on-screen with Amazon Music, stream music on Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn and more, a video intercom, and more.
It is available for pre-order starting today for $229.99 from Amazon in Black and White. The pre-orders will start shipping on June 28.
