Video chats and recipes

The mid-sized smart display is great for Skype and Zoom video calls – even for the less tech-savvy among us. “My mum couldn’t handle Zoom and Skype. I set up a Show for her and practiced several times,” said a satisfied Amazon customer. “He can initiate a call to us without any problems. I think the larger size and dedicated features were the turning point for it. Wish we had bought it sooner!”

It can also be your companion in the kitchen; ask Alexa for step-by-step instructions on how to make everything from buttermilk pancakes to vegetarian lasagna. You will also get access to the Food Network Kitchen.

A five-star reviewer said: “We keep Amazon Show 8 in our kitchen and the whole family enjoys using it. The display is the perfect size on the kitchen counter. We like to play music (sounds great) and of course we like to ask Alexa about the temperature or weather forecast and ask basically any question you can think of. The recipe function is also excellent!”
