The Amazon Echo Show 5 combines the convenience of a voice-controlled speaker with a visual touchscreen. It connects to the Alexa voice service, so you can ask Alexa to play film trailers, make a video call… even see who’s at the front door!
The Echo Show 5 features a camera (with video recording and built-in cover) and full-range speaker. Measuring only 5.5”, it discreetly blends into any room and you can customise the display however you like. Experiment with different clock faces or choose one of your favourite photos.

Watch film trailers, sing along to your favourite songs, or follow step-by-step recipe instructions on the Echo Show. Ask Alexa for the latest news headlines, sports scores, traffic information and more. Download ‘skills’ (like apps on your phone) to get even more out of your voice-controlled device.

Enhance your everyday life
The Echo Show makes it easier to carry out daily tasks. It works with hundreds of compatible smart home devices, so you can manage your lighting, plugs, and heating using just your voice or the touchscreen. Then there are the useful features you never even knew you needed... Like the ambient sunrise feature, which gives you a gentle wake-up call in the morning.
Connect with loved ones
Video call family and friends who have an Echo device with a screen, the Alexa app or Skype. Or use the Echo Show to check compatible security cameras around the home or even to see who’s at your front door. If you don’t want to be disturbed, slide over the camera’s built-in cover or switch off the microphone and camera for extra privacy.
