Amazon Echo Show 5
With a 5.5" touchscreen color display and a 1MP camera, the charcoal Amazon Echo Show 5 uses video capabilities to expand on traditional Alexa functionality. Equipped with dual-band Wi-Fi and two microphones, the Echo Show connects to your home's wireless network and allows you to intuitively play music, video chat with friends, check the weather and traffic anywhere in the US, hear sports scores, watch videos, and more.
See and Do More with Alexa
The Echo Show 5 connects to Alexa to offer a variety of functionality based around the 5.5" touchscreen and onboard speaker. See on-screen lyrics with Amazon Music, set alarms and timers, catch up on news highlights and movie trailers, check weather and traffic, and more.
Connect with Your Favorite People
The Echo Show 5 allows you to make video calls to friends and family who have the Alexa app, another screen-equipped Echo device, or Skype. You can also instantly connect to other compatible Echo devices in your home to make a quick announcement.
Multiple privacy layers are onboard. For example, your voice is streamed to the cloud only after your device detects the wake word ("Alexa"). You can also turn the microphone and camera off with the press of a button, and the built-in shutter lets you physically cover the camera.
Manage Your Smart Home Devices
With the Echo Show 5 and Alexa, you can manage compatible smart home devices on the interactive display or with your voice. Control lights and switches, set thermostats, view security cameras, and more.
Ease into Mornings
Use the ambient sunrise lighting feature to help you get your day started right. You can also choose from several clock face designs, select your favorite photo to be the home screen, and create morning routines to start your day.
With over 80,000 skills and counting, Alexa is always expanding its functionality. Skills are like apps and let you do more, like play Jeopardy!, or learn something new with wikiHow. Just say, "Alexa, show me skills."
With the Echo Show 5, you can enable Alexa captioning and closed captioning, magnify the screen, toggle color inversion, and choose between color correction options. You can also enable the VoiceView screen reader to use gestures to navigate the screen and hear spoken feedback about the items you select.
