Make hands-free voice calls to almost anyone, or video calls to friends and family who have an Echo Spot, Echo Show, or the Alexa App. Use the Drop In feature when you want to connect instantly with other compatible Echo devices in your home. For example, you can drop in to ask what time dinner will be ready, see the baby’s nursery, or check in with a close relative. With Alexa Announcements you can also use Echo Show to broadcast a quick, one-way message to all other Echo devices in your home.
Making calls with Alexa is easy. Set up your voice profile and teach Alexa to recognize your voice. When you say, “Alexa, call Mom”, Alexa will call your mom, even if you have multiple users in your home. When you’re busy making dinner, just ask Alexa to place a call from your Echo Show to almost anyone
For news and information you can see and hear, just ask Alexa for your video flash briefing from CNN, Bloomberg, and more. Curious about the latest movie trailers or showtimes? Just ask.
Echo Show helps keep you organized at home. Start a timer in the kitchen and watch as it counts down, or easily see and manage your family’s calendar. Sign in to the Alexa App to take your to-do and shopping lists with you. Just add an item to the list from home, and whoever is out shopping will see it added instantly on their Alexa App.
