Amazon announces new Echo Show in the US

As per usual with most Echo devices, you can also use it to control various features of your home, like the thermostat, lights, and other compatible smart home devices such as WeMo, Philips Hue, and ecobee.

The Wall Street Journal said on Monday afternoon that Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is gearing up to announce the new Echo, which has reportedly been in beta testing for "months".

Amazon has revealed another variant of its Alexa voice-controlled personal assistant - the Echo Show.

As reported earlier, Amazon on Tuesday, has finally introduced the Echo Show.

Like past Echo devices, the Echo Show can connect to Pandora or Spotify accounts as well.

It also allows closed captioning, so that when you ask Alexa a question, you can see the answer, as well as hear it.

After losing the French election, what's next for Marine Le Pen?
Prime Minister Lee, meantime, said he is confident that under Mr Macron's leadership, "France will emerge stronger". Leaders in Germany and Britain praised Macron's victory, but viewed it through their own electoral challenges.

Another feature called "Drop In" lets your friends, uh, drop in on your Echo Show's screen to basically say "what's up?"

Echo Show is now available for pre-order and will release on June 28. The Echo Show will have video calling support as well.

The Echo Show includes Dolby-powered speakers for music playback with supposed 'crisp vocals and dynamic bass response.' The device uses eight beam forming microphones to pick up your voice from any direction.

The Amazon Echo Show is pretty pricey, but it seems like it's definitely worth it.

A unique feature of the Show is access to video and voice calls, so you can call people with an Echo or who have downloaded the Alexa app. The touchscreen can be used for video calls, playing YouTube videos and displaying information based on your requests. Once the company launches in Australia, Amazon is also expected to make a significant contribution to the 311 million smart home devices in the country by 2021.
