More ways to control your privacy
Alexa and Echo devices are built with multiple layers of privacy protection. For example, on Echo Show 8, you can turn off the mics and camera with the press of a button, or slide the built-in cover to easily close the camera. You also have control over your voice recordings. You can view, hear or delete them at any time.
Voice control your smart home
Manage compatible smart home devices on the simple, interactive display, or use your voice. Control lights and switches, set thermostats and view security cameras.
Alexa is happy to help
Make your life easier at home. Use your voice to set timers, add items to lists and create calendar events and reminders. You can also check the news, weather or traffic. Ask for sports scores, film screening times or information.
Alexa has skills
With tens of thousands of skills and counting, Alexa is always getting smarter. Skills are like apps and help you do more, such as play relaxing sounds or test your music knowledge. Just say, “Alexa, what are your top skills?”
