Amazon's new Echo Show will help Amazon continue to dominate the voice-controlled speaker market in the U.S.
Over the past few days, leaks surrounding a new Amazon Echo device had been making rounds on the internet.
The Echo Show is touch screen display, something that was missing from its predecessor. Essentially, people can use the screen on the Echo show as a digital photo frame by pulling pictures stored on Prime Photos, and when it's playing songs from Amazon Music, it'll put the lyrics up on-screen. The Echo Show will be available from June 28 in the US. Users will be able to ask Alexa to pull up products from the amazon online shop and answers from the net. It also looks like that the functionality will only be available with other Echo Show owners and those with the Alexa app.

Organizers prevented reporters from attending the event, saying it was a private function even though it is publicly advertised. The minimum investment requirement is $1 million, unless the project is in a rural area or high-unemployment area.
When you're not using the Show's screen it will display the next appointment in your calendar and it can also tell you who might be up for a chat with the "Drop in" feature.
The Echo Show integrates with compatible home security cameras like Ring and Arlo to beam the video feed to the integrated screen.
This is Amazon 's fourth Echo-branded product. All Echo messaging and calling is free.

Like the Echo speakers, Echo Show includes Amazon's "far-field" microphones and noise canceling technology, allowing the device to pick up your commands from anywhere in the room. It can even be used to play video news briefings from networks like CNN. When it comes to the video calling feature, consumers will be enabled to call anyone with an Echo device or a smartphone which has the Alexa app installed.
Prices for the Echo Show start at $229.99 (£178) and the device will be available in the USA on 28 June. The popularity of virtual assistants across all device types is also expected to grow this year, with 23.1% more usage of assistants like Alexa, Siri, Google Now and Cortana.
