The Amazon Echo Show 5 is sold on Amazon

We’re used to having screens of all sizes around — smartphones, smartwatches, TVs, laptops and tablets are everywhere! But one item that’s becoming increasingly useful, if not essential, around the home is a smart screen. Put one in your kitchen to watch recipe videos, in the living room to display treasured family photos, or in the home office so you can sneak a peek the next time the doorbell rings — the possibilities are endless. And right now, you can unlock those possibilities with Amazon’s Echo Show 5, loved by over 88,000 Amazon reviewers, and it’s down to $35 — its lowest price ever! — for an early Black Friday.

Of course, the Echo Show 5’s marquee feature is Alexa, the voice assistant you can ask to do all sorts of things. Want it to play music, control the weather, or turn the lights on and off? You can do all of this and more, and it’s so easy to get started.

It’s especially great if you’re already familiar with Alexa, like one family who notes that “It was easy to add to our Alexa-compatible products already at home using the Alexa app… I had an Echo Dot and moved it into another room and they were easy to connect so I could listen to music anywhere in the house.”

“So convenient,” wrote one five-star fan. “I check the time and temperature, ask her to set reminders or a timer, ask her how long to cook something, etc. I’ve also used it to send photos and make a video call to my nephew and his family.”

Another praises the Show for its convenience: “Love the Echo Show 5. It really helps with my grocery list! Just say ‘Alexa added milk to my grocery list.'” That’s it, don’t forget to buy. It’s like having a secretary in your kitchen.”

Even beginners can benefit from the ease of use of the Echo Show 5. This buyer says, “I’m new to technology and built this myself. I need to further explore all the activities that Alexa can help me with.”

The mini smart display is fantastic for Skype and Zoom video calls, and even streaming video with Hulu Plus and Prime Video. It can also be your partner in the kitchen. Ask Alexa for step-by-step instructions on how to make everything from buttermilk pancakes to veggie lasagna. You’ll also have access to the Food Network Kitchen. It can even be used as a digital photo frame when not in use, thanks to Amazon Photos.

This five-star reviewer summed up what the device has to offer: “The versatility of this device is amazing.”
