Just in time for Father’s Day, Amazon is again offering up many of their devices at great sale prices, and this includes the Amazon Echo Show (2nd Gen). It allows you all the benefits of a smart speaker with Alexa while also giving you video capabilities to watch your favorite streaming content.
The Echo Show includes premium speakers with Dolby processing that let you stream music and audiobooks in stereo, while also showing video on a 10.1″ HD screen. It now features a new fabric design.
Alexa has an expansive library that now numbers over 50,000 skills, letting you do more and more. You can ask it to show you lyrics and album art from Amazon Music, as well as show you weather forecasts, calendars and to-do lists.
Not only can you watch all your favorite streamed TV shows and movies, but you can also use it in your kitchen to watch recipe videos, create your shopping lists, and set timers and alarms. You can also use it to make video calls to anyone who has Skype, the Alexa app, an Echo Spot, or an Echo Show.
With eight microphones on the Echo Show and far-field technology, Alexa can hear your requests even when music is playing. But if that bothers you, you can turn off the mic and the camera with the touch of a button.
Compatible Zigbee devices can be set up and connected as well without a separate hub. You’ll be able to see your front door camera stream with two-way audio and notifications.
Get the Echo Show at $50 off for just $179.99.
