The Amazon Echo Show is being released today (28.06.17).

The device - which is an advanced version of Amazon's popular Echo smart speaker - has gone on sale for $229.99 and allows the user to watch YouTube videos, control their smart home and look at live streaming pictures from their security cameras.

Sharing about the product on their website, they write: "Echo Show brings you everything you love about Alexa, and now she can show you things. Watch video flash briefings and YouTube, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more. All hands-free - just ask.

"Introducing a new way to be together. Make hands-free video calls to friends and family who have an Echo Show or the Alexa App, and make voice calls to anyone who has an Echo or Echo Dot. See lyrics on-screen with Amazon Music. Just ask to play a song, artist or genre, and stream over Wi-Fi. Also, stream music on Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and more.

"With eight microphones, beam-forming technology, and noise cancellation, Echo Show hears you from any direction - even while music is playing. Always getting smarter and adding new features, plus thousands of skills like Uber, Allrecipes, CNN, and more."

One of the Echo Show's best features is its ability to connect it to your smart home, so you can control your front door cameras, lights, fans, sprinklers and more from the device.

They add on their website: "Use Echo Show to see a live camera feed from the nursery or your front door. Turn on the fan or dim the lights from the couch - all without lifting a finger.
