Amazon Echo Show and Echo Dot Deals
The Echo Show is truly one of the smartest smart speakers every created. It has a 5.5 inch display that lets you schedule your life, check the weather, play music, find recipes, and call your family. It plays movies and TV shows. Manages to-do lists.
You can use it control your other smart devices, like dimming lights or adjust your thermostat. Plus, we love the privacy settings most of all. You can also turn the microphone and camera off or cover the camera with a built-in shutter. Most joyfully of all, you can Skype grandparents.
The second gen Echo Show has a crystal clear 10.1 inch HD screen for watching videos, movies, and TV shows in a new fabric design, plus seeing grandma and grandpa up close and personal during mandatory weekend check-ins. Like the Echo Show 5, it has a 1MP camera, which is plenty powerful enough for most of us.
Obviously, Amazon has released newer versions of the Echo Show. The newer ones have larger displays and more powerful speakers. And the newest version has the best camera of all: 5MP, where Echo Shows 5 and 8 each have a 1MP camera.
Not only does this smart speaker sound better, due to its Dolby 360 degree audio, but you can now adjust equalizer settings and of course, voice control your music and your smart home.
The Echo Dot lets you voice control your music and your smart home devices, and has a microphone off button to protect your privacy.
Your kids can use the Echo Dot to call friends that you put on the approved call list, plus parents can set daily time limits and review activity, and filter explicit songs from select music services.
