A Personal Assistant for $300? Amazon’s Echo Show Makes it Possible

Spotify’s New Deal Ensures Continued Indie Artist Access
April 23, 2017

Whether it’s in everyday life or to fetch the lyrics to your favourite song, Amazon’s Echo Show is here to fill in the spaces left from an unreliable memory or impartial significant other. The Echo Show is a touchscreen device powered by Alexa that can recite your shopping list and display lyrics on-screen with Amazon Music, all initiated by your voice. Simply ask the device to play a song from a particular artist or genre and stream on Pandora, Spotify or other streaming devices over your Wi-Fi at home.

For increased connectivity, you can even communicate with family and friends who own an Echo or the Alexa app. If you’re notorious for being late or missing events altogether, you’ll love the fact that Echo displays your calendar at a glance so you don’t have to miss out ever again. Simply ask “is that today” and watch the Show layout your events.

And if you’re all about that bass, Echo’s powerful, room-filling speakers with Dolby processing provide crisp vocals and extended bass response; perfect for those who enjoy music while entertaining or unwinding. Think of Echo Show as the roommate that actually pulls his/her weight! More specs below via Amazon:
