The Amazon Echo Show 5 is available for purchase at Amazon

We’ve become accustomed to having screens of all shapes and sizes – smartphones, smartwatches, TVs, laptops and tablets are everywhere! But one item that has become increasingly useful, if not indispensable, in the home is a smart display. Put one in your kitchen to watch recipe videos, in the living room to display cherished family photos, or in your home office so you can preview it the next time the doorbell rings – the possibilities are endless. And now you can unlock those possibilities with Amazon’s Echo Show 5, loved by more than 88,000 Amazon reviewers, while costing just $35 – its lowest price ever! – for early Black Friday.

Of course, the main feature of the Echo Show 5 is Alexa, the voice assistant you can ask to do anything. Do you want her to play music, check the weather, or turn the lights on and off? You can do all this and more, and it’s so easy to get started.

It’s especially great if you’re already familiar with Alexa, as one family notes: “It was easy to add to our Alexa-enabled products already in the house using the Alexa app…I had a Echo Dot and I moved it to another room, and they were easy to connect so I can listen to music anywhere in the house.”

“So convenient,” one five-star fan wrote. “I check the time and temperature, ask her to set reminders or a timer, ask her how long to cook something, etc. I’ve also used her to send pictures and have a video call with my nephew and his family.”

Another praises the Show for its convenience: “I love my Echo Show 5. It really helps with my shopping list! Just say ‘Alexa add milk to my shopping list’.” That’s all, don’t forget to buy. It’s like having a secretary in your kitchen.”

Even newbies can benefit from the ease of use of the Echo Show 5. This customer says, “I’m a tech rookie and set it up myself. I need to explore all the activities Alexa can help me with.”

The mini smart display is great for video chatting over Skype and Zoom, and even video streaming with Hulu Plus and Prime Video. It can also be your kitchen companion; ask Alexa for step-by-step instructions on how to make everything from buttermilk pancakes to vegetarian lasagna. You also get access to Food Network Kitchen. Thanks to Amazon Photos, it can even be used as a digital photo frame when not in use.

This five-star reviewer sums up what the device has to offer: “The versatility of this device is amazing.”
