Perfect Echo Show – size and quality. This Echo Show is a winner. I have a LOT of Echo Shows around my house (various models) and I like this the best. The screen is much better quality (and larger) than the Echo Show 5 and a larger screen than the first-generation Echo Show. The design takes up less room than the earlier Echo Show models and looks better too. If you buy a stand for it, get the one from EchoGear (shown in my photos). It works great and tilts up and down and swivels. The screen looks great (HD) and the sound is excellent. I like the switch on the top to turn off the camera and microphone (like the Echo Show 5).
So easy and so good with Ring cameras. I received my new Echo Show 8 – HD 8″ smart display with Alexa a couple of hours ago. I had it unpacked and connected to my WIFI within 30 minutes. I have 3 Ring cameras, front doorbell, a front & back yard motion light cameras. Once I followed the steps to add Ring in the Alexa app, like 2 minutes, It was so intuitive I don’t know what I did right but another 5 minutes I said Alexa show front door and she said okay and there was my front door camera on the screen. Then I said Alexa, show back which is what I named the device “back” and she said okay and showed the back yard camera, same with the front successfully. I have many more smart devices the Alexa app found on my wi-fi so I’m excited to figure out how to add them.
Also, now I understand the importance of naming the devices. Alexa only understands exactly what you name them in the devise list for voice commands.
