Earlier, we posted the Amazon is set to unveil a new Echo device, codenamed Echo Knight, that will come with a screen. However, we now have confirmation that the device is not named Echo Knight, but it is officially called Amazon Echo Show and it will start shipping June 28, 2017.
The Echo Show is the new addition to the Echo range of smart home devices and it comes with a 7-inch screen. The device is WiFi enabled, does everything that you would expect from an Alexa-based device and it can now show everything on the screen. Unlike the Amazon Echo where you will only listen to the answers, the Echo Show will show you every result on the screen.
“Echo Show brings you everything you love about Alexa, and now she can show you things. Watch video flash briefings and YouTube, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, and more. All hands-free—just ask.” reads the description of the device on the Amazon page. One of the main selling points of the device is the ability to make video calls.
Amazon Echo is one of the best selling device and just last month, Echo Look was launched which is basically a virtual style assistant that helps you with your fashion choices and comes with a camera, but there’s no screen.
The Amazon Echo Show will do everything that a smart device is supposed to do and when you listen to music, you will be able to see the lyrics of the song, see the front door or monitor your baby’s room, control the lights and thermostats, listen to music with the eight microphones and stay updated with the latest news.
