Announced in 2018, Amazon has finally launched its updated Echo Show in India at a price of Rs. 22,999. The second generation device has been equipped with a 10-inch HD display, a passive bass radiator, dual side-firing 2-inch Neodymium drivers, and Dolby sound processing. Besides the ability to interact with Amazon’s own voice assistant, Alexa, the Echo Show display can also be used to watch movies and videos. The device has also been provided with optimized Alexa skills to enable it to perform seamlessly with its bigger display.
Amazon Echo Show’s 5 MP front-camera helps users to place video calls from the device itself, besides allowing them to surf the web. All thanks to a built-in web browser. Additionally, it has been equipped with an in-built Zigbee smart home hub that enables the speaker to connect to smart home appliances. Commands like Alexa, discover my devices can be used to locate and pair with compatible products, including smart light bulbs and plugs, and control them without resorting to external apps or hubs.
Customers across the country have purchased Echo devices and started their voice-first journey with Alexa. Today, we’re making this voice-first experience better by introducing Echo Show which provides an enhanced audio-visual experience. The large screen size will increase utility and make it even easier to ask Alexa to show you things, no matter where you are in the room. And the room filling sound will make watching a music video, catching up on your favorite shows or listening to your favorite playlist more enjoyable – Parag Gupta, Head of Amazon Devices, India
Amazon Echo Show has become the latest device to join the list of other Amazon products in the Indian market, including Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Spot, Echo Input and the Echo Plus.
