Amazon India just announced the availability of Echo Show in India. The Echo Show sports a 10-inch HD display, a built-in smart home hub and a speaker system with Dolby processing that delivers powerful bass and stereo sound.
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.

Highlights of Amazon Echo Show
The Echo Show has a fabric design and comes with a 10-inch HD display that shows colorful, fresh, and compelling visuals. So, when you ask Alexa to show you movie trailers, video news bulletins and award-winning TV shows from Amazon Prime Video, or Facebook photos, the experience is delightful. Simply say, “Alexa, play Comicstaan.” You can also ask for weather, pull up your shopping list, and watch your favorite music videos from Hungama on the high-resolution display by saying, “Alexa, play latest music videos.”
Premium Audio with Dolby Processing
The Echo Show has an eight-microphone array and ‘far-field’ technology to differentiate your voice from ambient sound. The Echo Show screen is complemented by dual, side-firing 2” Neodymium drivers, a passive bass radiator, and Dolby processing to deliver expansive sound with deep, powerful lows, and crisp highs, perfect for listening to your favorite music.
Built-In Smart Home Hub
With a built-in Zigbee smart home hub, the Echo Show makes it simple to start your smart home. Just say, “Alexa, discover my devices” to automatically discover and setup compatible light bulbs and plugs without the need for additional hubs or apps. Once set-up, ask Alexa to turn on the lights or use the touch-screen to turn devices on and off.
The Echo Show has a built-in 5 MP front-facing camera that supports high-definition video calling and is great for hands-free calls to friends and family who have an Echo Spot, Echo Show or the Alexa App. You can also use Skype voice for video calling. Just say, “Alexa, call mom” or “Alexa, call Vijay on Skype”.
Built-in Web Browsers
Echo Show has built-in web browsers that can be opened by saying, “Alexa, open Silk” or “Alexa, open Firefox.” You can use the on-screen keyboard on these browsers to type a URL, search and watch web videos, and visit your favorite website.
On Echo devices with screens, you can enable Alexa captioning, magnify the screen, toggle color inversion, and choose between color correction options. You can also enable the VoiceView screen reader to use gestures to navigate the screen and hear spoken feedback about the items you select.
