“...The app was easy to set up and understand,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “Everyday I learn something new that Echo can do. The screen quality is good...So far have used it to check on the weather each day, play a couple of short games. Listen to national news from CBS...”

It can even be used as a digital photo frame when not in use, thanks to Amazon Photos. “...The screen resolution is very nice for the photo displays. You can sync an assortment of photos through the Amazon Photo app or select a category for the Echo 8 to display for you...” added another fan.

Video chats and recipes

The mid-sized smart display is fantastic for video chats via Skype and Zoom — even for the less tech savvy among us. “My mom was failing at Zoom and Skype. I set the Show up for her and practiced a couple of times,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “She can initiate a call to us with no issues. I think the larger size and dedicated functions were the turning point for her. Wish we bought it sooner!”

It can also be your kitchen counter companion; ask Alexa for step-by-step instructions on how to make everything from buttermilk pancakes to veggie lasagna. You’ll get access to Food Network Kitchen as well.

Said a five-star reviewer: “We keep the Amazon Show 8 in our kitchen, and the whole family enjoys using it. Display is the perfect size on the kitchen counter. We enjoy playing music (sounds great) and of course, we enjoy asking Alexa for the temperature or the weather forecast, and asking basically any question you can think of. Recipe feature is excellent too!”
