Amazon has just announced a new Echo Show. This will add to the current lineup, for three devices in a range of sizes.
“Customers love choice,” Amazon says of their growing collection of devices. This device is now available for pre-order at $129.
Earlier today, we shared news about Amazon and Discovery’s new channel Food Network Kitchen. Alexa will be the exclusive voice service for that channel and app. Amazon is promoting this new Echo Show as the perfect device to use in the kitchen.
The Echo Show 8 comes in at 8 inches, right between the Echo Show’s 10.1 inch screen and the Echo Show 5 at 5.5 inches. The The Echo Show 8 has an HD screen and a privacy shutter than can be closed when you aren’t using the device.
Along with the new hardware, Amazon introduced new features, including Drop In On All. With this feature, you can set up a group with all of your family members that are also using an Echo device, then start a call with everyone at once.
