Amazon Echo Show 8 is an assistant that will help you in your daily activities, whether you are calling a family member on skype to making a family dinner. This assistant can give you many recipes when you ask “Alexa, show me recipes for alfredo” Alexa will then show you many different recipes and even videos on how to make the dish.
The echo show 8 is much like the second generation but only smaller, it has all the same features as the bigger version. I have the second generation that has the bigger 10″ display. When using the second generation, I see no difference in the functions or features, in fac! When I connected the version 8, it had all my features from the bigger one. If you are interested in the information on the Echo Show 2nd Gen, you can find it on my website.
