Amazon's New Echo Device Will Be Watching

The Amazon Echo Show has all of the same functionality, including the ability to purchase items from Amazon with your voice (if you have Amazon Prime, anyway).

It comes with a 7-inch touchscreen and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, allowing users to do a number of tasks, such as attending video and voice calls with other Echo devices.

However, this goes against Amazon's developer agreement, which forbids "any advertising for third-party products or services".

Google home did not have a screen or video calling feature.

We as people need to realize the risk to our privacy also.

Amazon is rumored to release a new, touchscreen-clad Echo home assistant speaker soon.

Bluetooth Connectivity: Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) support for audio streaming from your mobile device to Echo Show or from Echo Show to your Bluetooth speaker.

Users can watch video flash briefings and YouTube, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, and more.

VoiceLabs, which provides voice analytics for Alexa and Google Assistant, has released its Sponsored Messages. The ad features a running gag about users' loss of hearing, but there are also other amusing bits including the part where a Echo Silver user asks the device how well Satchel Paige pitched the previous night. If you really want a tablet with a stand, I'd suggest you buy a stand for your older tablet.

Amazon has priced the Echo Show at $229.99.

LG Electronics USA Vice President of Marketing David VanderWaal (L) and Amazon Vice President of Alexa, Echo and Appstore Mike George display the LG Smart InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerator during a LG press event for CES 2017 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on January 4, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Just say, "Alexa, message Alex".

Amazon's latest Alexa update is one that could prove extremely useful to those who want to keep in contact with friends and family through various Echo devices, coming to us in the form of Alexa Calling & Messaging. Microsoft Cortana digital assistant powers it. "All hands-free - just ask". And the speaker also controls smart devices around the home. The speaker on the $50 Echo Dot isn't as good, as it's meant to be used with speakers you already may own. Frankly speaking, when compared to Home Hub, the Echo Show seems quite rudimentary in terms of the future.
