Amazon Announces New Echo Show 8 and Echo Show 8 Photos Edition

Posted September 21, 2023 at 2:32pm by iClarified
Amazon has announced new Echo Show 8 smart display, offering better sound with spatial audio, better calling with a centered, auto-framing camera, and better smart home integration with a built-in smart home hub.

With its newly centered camera and background noise minimization, the Echo Show 8 was made for even better video calls. It also features custom-built special audio processing technology, creating a wider and more immersive sound experience, plus, room adaption tech that senses the acoustics of the room and fine-tunes playback for optimal sound. Meanwhile, the built-in smart home hub makes it easy to control all your smart home devices from one place.

An exciting new update to this Echo Show is adaptive content. Thanks to computer vision, your home screen will change based on your proximity to Echo Show 8. When you're further away, the screen will show essentials like a simplified news headline or a large clock—information you can read from across the room. But as you approach the device, the screen will transition to more detailed and touch-friendly UI, along with personalized content.
