Amazon set to launch a new Echo with a screen

Building on the existing library of home voice commands offered in previous Echo products, now you can ask Alexa to play music and the Show will display music lyrics on the screen. The Echo Show will also be able to make phone calls between other Alexa powered devices thanks to the personal AI assistant.

The Show follows in the footsteps of the recently announced Amazon Echo Look, which combined Amazon's Alexa voice assistant with a camera that can take pictures and make style recommendations.

Amazon's Echo Show will cost buyers roughly $300 (which roughly translates to Rs 19,400) and the device will start shipping from June 28 in the U.S. to begin with.

Amazon is tight-lipped on Echo Show, but GSMArena has claimed in a report that it will be unveiled on Tuesday, May 9, and released into the market on June 28. Also acts as a digital photo frame and even shows a certain area of the house when connected with a security camera. Messages can also be read within the Alexa app. For example, the Echo Show could connect with products like the smart doorbell Ring to show video of who's at your front door. It's called Echo Show and it can be yours for $229.99. The device allows people to use their voice, and Amazon's voice assistant Alexa, to get answers to questions, turn on lights, order goods from Amazon.com, and request an Uber vehicle for pickup.
