Not going to lie I'm very disappointed with the echo show 8. The hardware is great, the speaker and screen actually amazed me. Where it falls short is the software side. First disappointment; for no reason you can't change the clock look like you can with the echo show 5. The 'home screen' clock only takes a 10th of the space. It seems pretty bland and useless compared to the echo show 5. Also when asking Alexa to shuffle music, Echo does not have to capability to actually do that. It just swaps some songs but essentially play them in order. I think this can just be fixed with a update but until then i'm disappointed and am considering a return.
