Amazon has launched the best smart alarm clock “Echo Show 5” with a fully functional smart display, a 5.5-inch screen, a Ring video doorbell and a single small speaker. The Amazon Echo Show 5, which is almost a half-size version of the 10-inch second generation Echo Show, is already available in the United States, Europe, and Japan, with support for India and Mexico coming soon.

The cute Echo Show 5 has a rounded and compact design with back covered in the sleek gray mesh fabric — makes it a friendly miniature television or tablet that can be used a nightstand. On its 5.5 inches screen, you can watch music videos, news clips and how-tos. The screen-bedecked Alexa device is best suited for an office, in the living room, on a kitchen countertop.

“Since we launched the first Echo Show device, customers have told us they love asking Alexa to show them things—whether it’s a recipe for banana bread, their shopping list, or music lyrics. With Echo Show 5, we’ve made it even easier and affordable for customers to add a smart display to every room of their house,” said Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President, Amazon Alexa. “The compact form factor is perfect for a bedside table or desk, plus it has a camera shutter for added peace of mind, and new Alexa privacy features for even more control.”

The Echo Show 5 is much more than a smart alarm clock. This Alexa-enabled device is capable of sharing a photo gallery, a mashup of weather forecasts, notify about your calendar, answer your factual queries and set alarms, timers, and of course, reminders. Also, you can choose a clock face and background art by just saying the magical words “Alexa, show me your clock faces” and the 5.5-inch display wil show up awesome things.

More content discovery and personalization features are added. To experience the Alexa’s smart displays, all you need to do is just swipe the screen and the discovery panel will show icons and content.

The all new the Echo Show 5 has the Communicate button which allows you to utilize the Echo Show 5 camera and make video calls. Plus, you can use this communication button to reach out: Message, Call, Drop In, and Announce in a few seconds.

Amazon Echo Show 5 is surely a smaller and pared-down version of Amazon’s 2nd-generation Echo Show loaded with some great specifications like premium audio, internet browsers, a nifty futuristic design, support for live TV and a killer 1280 x 800 screen.
