Although it was only released a few months ago, Amazon’s all-new Echo Show 8 immediately became the bunch’s best echo show. Between Echo Show 5 and the original Echo Show, the option is still simpler nowadays as the price of Echo Show 5 falls back to its Cyber Monday discount and is available at no extra cost in the form of a bundled Echo Dot. All in all, when not on sale, you’re paying $79.99 for items worth $180. The devices are predictably a little back-ordered after last month’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday incidents, and holiday shoppers have recently picked them up, though you can still lock in this price now and your devices will ship as soon as they’re available.
The Echo Show line from Amazon is the most versatile of its Echo devices. Instead of being just a smart speaker like most Echo devices, the Echo Show also features an integrated screen that allows you to view your photos, movies, and shows from services like Prime Video and Hulu, weather forecasts, and more. Best of all, just ask Alexa to find what you’re searching for. Such apps can also monitor compatible smart home appliances; ask Alexa to shut off the Philips Hue lights when it is time to go to bed or turn on your Fire TV right before the show starts. The number in the name of the Echo Show refers to its display size so that the Echo Show 5 has a 5-inch display and the Echo Show 8 has an eight-inch display. With a 10.1-inch display, the original Echo Show is the largest.
You will also receive an Echo Dot third generation, a smart layer that can be used to easily access Alexa’s audio-based smart devices somewhere else in your home. Have a look at the weather. Check smart home appliances. Set the alarms and timers. Make lists of shopping. With just a few words spoken and a Wi-Fi network. It can also broadcast not only Amazon Music Unlimited music but also other services such as Apple Music and Spotify.
