Alexa has a screen with Amazon Echo Show

As reported earlier, Amazon on Tuesday, has finally introduced the Echo Show. Now, Amazon is preparing to add a visual element to Alexa with the Echo Show ($229), the first Echo device with a screen. It is called Echo Show and brings more voice skills to your home including two-way video calling, accessing smart home cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, and more.

This new device by Amazon is the company's fourth major Echo-branded model. So, the Echo Show includes a 7-inch touch screen that can plug into select services. This functionality actually allows you to connect with other Echo Show users even when the person on the other side may not even accept the call. With the new Amazon Echo also sporting a camera, there is the possibility that it will also be able to assist users with their fashion choices. Its price tag will reflect this distinction, with The Wall Street Journal claiming that the new Amazon Echo will be sold for more than $200. A United Kingdom release date and pricing will be announced at a later date.

In April, the company invited a selection of its customers to buy its new Echo Look, a voice-activated camera that can take hands-free photographs.

While the Echo Look can only be purchased with an invitation, Amazon will likely launch a massive marketing push for the Amazon Echo with a touchscreen.

The Google Home has so far been the Amazon Echo's chief competitor, but reports claim that Apple will also soon be joining the fray.

Global electronics giant Amazon has unveiled its latest smart speaker with a touchscreen.

The addition of Alexa calling and messaging is big for Amazon and its Echo devices. Alexa has since expanded to more smart speakers, tablets, and phones.
