This is because it is possible to use your voice to watch movies, videos and TV shows from Prime Video or other compatible streaming services. People TV, ET Live and Bloomberg TV have also just brought in their video content for the enjoyment of Echo Show users. Amazon informs that several collaborators will still complete the ranks.

New content that is available since the update

All devices compatible with Echo Show are now customizable. Additionally, linking video streaming services to your Echo Show is currently feasible. Users can now access information directly using voice through Voice ID.

For people who prefer to use Alexa, using common reading commands is not really relevant anymore. The intelligent personal assistant communicates by voice command and can be connected to devices such as Echo Auto, Echo Buds, Echo Frames, cars and even smart homes. New sharing features are also visible on the older Echo Show 10 and Echo Show 8 versions.

Alexa now has the possibility to share the ETAs of its users

In addition to its ability to integrate most of the devices most used daily, Alexa now offers its users to share their ETA or Estimated Time of Arrival. It is typically used to give customers an approximation of when a supplier will arrive at their destination, or to notify customers of the arrival time of a service specialist.

In the case of Amazon, sharing its ETA with Alexa makes it possible to announce the moment of arrival of the user to devices compatible with Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant such as a smart speaker for example. If a connected device is associated with Android, the user has the possibility to send a command by SMS. Alexa uses the default browsers of connected smartphones to browse.

The only requirement is to have the latest version of the Twitter app. So you can search Twitter, from your Android device, for groups related to the topics that interest you and participate in the communities.
