Amazon's Latest Echo Device Includes a Touchscreen

We have already seen some leaked photos of Amazon's new touchscreen Alexa enabled device and now it is official and called the Amazon Echo Show. It features a screen that Amazon says provides visibility across a room for images that accompany Alexa's voice responses. The device will also allow you to chat with those who have the Echo or Alexa App. But if you want Alexa's new calling features on a budget, you can pick up the Echo Dot for just $49.99 or use the free Alexa app for your smartphone or tablet.

Looking to buy two Amazon Echo Shows?

Amazon is expected to remain the most popular smart speaker manufacturer in 2017, well ahead of Google Home and other devices.

It's not clear if third-party Alexa devices will be included in the voice calling and messaging network. It goes live for pre-orders today, and the shipping will begin around the 28th of June. Customers can give one Echo Show to friends or family. As it is an echo underneath, you can connect it to your home automation systems and let Alexa control most of your electrical appliances through your voice commands.

Last month Amazon introduced the Echo Look, which features a voice-controlled camera for taking selfies and comparing your outfits.

Echo Show's touchscreen can display several things, including video calls with other Echo Show users or voice calls with other Echo product users.

Echo Show has eight microphones so it can hear you even if you're watching a show or playing music. It's a great way to keep in touch with grandma and grandpa, because they can see you on a bigger screen, and turn on the closed captioning.
