As with any piece of tech, the first go around is never perfect. For everything right about Amazon’s smash hit, Echo still needed some fine-tuning. It just got it. Echo Show is the new Amazon Alexa-equipped device that takes everything you loved already and adds video. What does that mean for you? Well, now you can see lyrics to your music, watch YouTube videos, check in on what your security cameras are spotting, and lots more. The speakers boast Dolby processing for crisp vocals and extended bass, so not only is the Echo Show for interacting, it can serve as a true speaker system. The new device is packed with eight mics and noise cancellation so it can also serve as the perfect piece of tech for video calls. You can pre-order the Echo Show now for $230 and it will be released on June 28. Even if you bought an Echo, this is worth considering.
