Small and elegant
The Echo Show 8 has a compact and sharp 8-inch screen, so it’s perfect for a kitchen counter or desk. And thanks to built-in Alexa, it doubles as a mini entertainment hub. Access videos, TV shows, movies, or news from Prime Video, Hulu, NBC, and more, and listen to Internet radio stations, podcasts, and audiobooks through Amazon Music, Spotify, and Audible.
“…The app was easy to set up and understand,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “Every day I learn something new that Echo can do. Screen quality is good…So far I’ve used it to check the weather every day, play a few short games Listen to CBS national news…”
It can even be used as a digital photo frame when not in use, thanks to Amazon Photos. “…The screen resolution is very nice for photo displays. You can sync an assortment of photos through the Amazon Photo app or select a category for the Echo 8 to display for you…” added another fan.
Video chats and recipes
The mid-sized smart display is fantastic for video chats via Skype and Zoom, even for the less tech-savvy among us. “My mum was failing on Zoom and Skype. I put up the show for her and practiced multiple times,” one happy Amazon buyer shared. “She can call us without any problem. I think the bigger size and the dedicated functions were the turning point for her. I wish I had bought it sooner!”
It can also be your kitchen counter companion; ask Alexa for step-by-step instructions on how to make everything from buttermilk pancakes to vegetarian lasagna. You will also have access to Food Network Kitchen.
