or else I'd have purchased the bigger Show. Nonetheless it's a great 'new' Alexa at home.
I've had the 1st gen Echo since 2015 and have never really been keen on having a model with a screen. But given the developments since then and the available skills, it's a must-have. I'm now thinking of upgrading all of my echos since this has added another dimension to my interactions.
Very easy to install as it connected all the smarts around the house that was already in the other echos. They all just got a new sister so to speak with no need to train her on anything. It's a great work companion during the lockdown period.
If you're someone who's never dabbled into Amazon's Alexa before, just pay the extra $ and go straight to the Echo Show.
