Capitalizing on the success of Alexa, Amazon has rapidly expanded its hardware line up to include a wide range of devices, from microwave ovens to even glasses. Amazon on Wednesday launched its latest device in the Echo line up. The company unveiled its Echo Show 8 in the country with an 8-inch HD screen, stereo sound, and a built-in camera with a shutter, which is priced at Rs. 12,999. The device is now available for pre-order at a discounted launch price of Rs. 8,999, and will be shipped on February 26. The Amazon Echo Show 8 was launched globally in September last year alongside other Echo-branded devices such as the Echo Buds and Echo Frames.
As the name might suggest, the Echo Show 8 showcases an 8-inch HD display that can be used to stream videos and consumer content. With the device, users also get the full suite of Alexa capabilities, including voice assistance, information, music streaming through linked services and communication. But given how privacy is a key issue in today’s world, there’s also a physical shutter to block the camera when it’s not in use.
The Echo Show 8 employs 2-inch neodymium speakers and a passive bass radiator that are capable of pushing stereo sound. With support for streaming services like Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music, JioSaavn, Gaana and Hungama Music amongst others, the Echo Show 8 is geared to be an entertainment hub.
If you have a smart home or make use of smart appliances, Show 8 provides a seamless way to control all pre-order with either touch or voice commands. Additionally, with support for Alexa Skills, there’s a lot more that you’ll be able to do with Show 8.
The Echo Show 8 is a bit more expensive than the Echo Show 5, which is currently priced at Rs. 6,999 considering that the Echo Show 8 is itself down to Rs. 8,999 for pre-orders. However, it’s significantly more affordable than the full-size Echo Show that retails at Rs. 22,999 and has a 10.1-inch screen. In most ways, the Echo Show 8 is expected to offer the same level of capabilities as the rest of the range.
