Smart displays give you new ways to interact with Amazon, Facebook and Google – CNET

Amazon Echo Show (First Generation)

The Amazon Echo Show helped kick off the trend. The $230 Show features the full power of Amazon’s assistant, Alexa. With a voice command, you can control your smart home, search the web, set a reminder and more, just like you would with an Amazon Echo smart speaker. 

Beyond what an ordinary Echo can do, you can use the Show to make video calls and see pictures. Alexa will show you information to help illustrate the answers to your questions. Plus, specific skills from Uber, Starbucks, CNN and others take advantage of the Echo Show’s touchscreen.
