Discontinued – this product has been replaced by the Echo Show 5 (3rd gen)
The Echo Show 5 (2nd gen) is the most affordable smart display from Amazon. The 5.5″ colour touchscreen and 2 megapixel camera allows you to make video calls to family and friends who have an Echo Show or a smartphone with the Alexa app. Check the latest news and weather, set alarms and timers and control other smart devices such as Philips Hue lights just by asking Alexa. You can even ask Alexa to stream TV shows and films on Prime Video and Netflix.
Alexa Privacy Protection
If you’re concerned about your privacy, you’ll be glad to know there are multiple layers of privacy protection built into each Echo device. First, a wake word is used to activate Alexa. So, unless Alexa detects that word, it won’t be recording your conversations. Second, all Echo devices have a Microphone Off or Mic/Camera Off button that disconnects the microphone and camera electronically. For added peace of mind all Echo Show devices have a sliding camera cover. Finally, you can delete any voice recordings by asking Alexa or using the Alexa app. You can read more about Alexa’s privacy features by clicking on this link.

How is the Echo Show 5 powered?
The Echo Show 5 comes with a power adaptor that plugs into a mains socket. Third-party battery bases are available that make the Echo Show 5 portable.
Does Alexa record my conversations?
Alexa only records audio when you wake it up using the wake word. Audio is recorded to improve the accuracy of the service offered by Alexa. You can ask Alexa to delete your voice history or you can view/delete all audio recordings using the app.
