Amazon recently dropped its latest Echo Show 8 (2023, 3rd generation), and while it has major upgrades from previous models, it comes with a hefty price tag of $150. If you own an Echo Dot, enjoy the help of Alexa, and want to save some money, the Echo Show 8 (2021, 2nd generation) will be a great addition to your home.
This Echo has an 8-inch HD touchscreen and a 13-megapixel camera that lets you do tasks you wouldn’t be able to do with a speaker, like making video calls, viewing photos, recipes, news, streaming, and more. You can also use it to view video streams from Blink Security cameras.
As Maria Diaz, smart home expert at ZDNET, says, “The latest Echo Show 8 makes a compelling case for a smart display for both Alexa fans and smart home enthusiasts, but the $150 price tag, which is higher than previous generations, could be a deterrent.” The new generation of Echo Show 8 retails for $130, although it is often discounted, as now, at just $70.
