With its larger screen and powerful sound, the Amazon Echo Show (2nd Gen) is the smart display for watching content as well as controlling your home.
A big step in the right direction thanks to a better design, screen, sound experience and feature set. The Show is still hampered by patchy skills and limited support for third party streaming services, but if you’re a Prime Video fan living in a smart home full of Echos, you should definitely check it out.
The second-generation Amazon Echo Show might use the same processor as the first, but virtually everything else is new and improved.
If you like the idea of a smart display for cooking, calling or watching videos, the newest Echo Show is a great option. But don't expect any extras.
The new Show is nice upgrade over its predecessor. It’s better looking, has a bigger screen and improved (if backwards) speakers, while smart home hub functionality and last year’s addition of security camera monitoring make it a control panel for the smart home. The ball is in your court, Google.
