Home assistant that shows and tells
The Amazon Echo Show is everything you love about your Amazon Alexa but with video capability, so you can ask Alexa to show you a recipe, watch live TV and sports, or see who’s at the front door. You can even make video calls with loved ones, simply say “Alexa, call cousin Emily” to be connected with a family member who lives across the country. You can also enable “Drop-in” for your closest friends and family. Just say, “Alexa, drop in on my daughter” to start an instant video call.
