Amazon Echo Show 5 Overview

Alexa can show you more

Echo Show 5, the newest addition to the Echo Show family is a compact 5.5” smart display ready to help manage your day, entertain at a glance, and connect you to friends and family. Small and easy to set up in any room of the home, Echo Show 5 lets you cook along to step-by-step recipes, easily update to-do lists and calendars, and glance at weather and traffic.

Echo Show 5 also lets you control smart devices to get more done. You can voice control compatible devices, or manage them on the easy-to-use display. Ask Alexa to show you security cameras, control lights, and adjust thermostats. Echo Show 5 also includes a built-in shutter to cover the camera when desired.

Smart display with Alexa

The vibrant 5.5-inch touchscreen is your visual gateway to everything the Echo Show 5 can do, including controlling smart home devices. Know who’s at your door directly from your Ring smart doorbell. Keep an eye on your little one through your Arlo baby monitor. Plus, you can watch the latest movie trailers, see tutorials from wikiHow, or listen along to your favorite songs with on-screen lyrics from Amazon Music.

You can also personalize the display and make it yours. Choose the clock face that fits your style or choose your favorite photos as a background on the home screen. You can even set the alarm to brighten the screen and ease you out of sleep, then start your day with a custom morning routine.

Designed around your privacy

Alexa and Echo devices are built with multiple layers of privacy. You can turn the microphones and camera on or off with one press of a button, or slide the built-in shutter to cover the camera. You can still use Alexa’s voice features when the camera is turned off.

Echo Show 5 only listens when you say the wake word (“Alexa”) and shows you a visual indicator when audio or video is streaming to the cloud. And now you have more ways to control your privacy. Say “Alexa, delete what I just said” or “Alexa, delete everything I said today,” and that voice data will be removed. The new Alexa Privacy Hub will also offer a single source to teach you about the controls you have over your Alexa experience. 

Connections made easy

Connect with your favourite people with video calling and messaging on Echo Show 5. Easily make video calls to friends and family who have the Alexa app, an Echo device with a screen, or Skype. If your friend has an Echo device without a screen, you can still connect in seconds with a voice call.

Within the home, you can use Drop In as a two-way intercom to a second compatible Echo device in another room. Or, when dinner’s ready you can make a one-way announcement to all other household devices. Alexa is always happy to help.
