Today, Amazon announced that they will sell a new device in the Echo line, with their Alexa AI built in, that will also feature an LCD screen to allow for additional features. Some of this list of new features will include: video and audio calling, displaying song lyrics when used with a streaming music service, and displaying photos from your library (if you use the Amazon Photos service)
The device will cost approximately $229 at launch and should be available by the end of June. You can watch this demo video of some of the Echo Show’s features or take a quick look at the recap from James Vincent of the Verge here. Dan Siefert of the Verge also had a neat write up on how the Echo Show might change how and when we use video calling in our daily lives. Pics of the device are below.
Once more info is known about the device, we’ll have some updates! Cheers!
