Two weeks ago, Amazon unveiled the Echo Look, a device focused on offering fashion advice.

Amazon Echo with touch screen costs $230. Nucleus was and is more or less the same thing as the Echo Show: "an Alexa-powered tablet computer created to be a dead-simple home intercom system and video conferencing tool".

In addition, there's now no feature that lets you delete certain contacts from your Alexa Calling list.

According to eMarketer, heaviest users of digital assistants are between the ages of 25 and 34, which represent 26.3% of virtual assistant users.

The Echo Show is just another step in Amazon's grinding the very concept of the personal computer into dust, says Chris Messina in an analysis of how Alexa will change personal computing. In addition to all of the typical Alexa skills, Amazon highlights that one of Echo Show's most important differentiating factors is communication; users can use the device to make hands-free video calls, communicate throughout the home like an intercom, or send messages. That's not the only cool feature to use around the home because it can turn on the lights, turn down the air conditioning and connect your smart home devices to it for total control. "So far, that strategy has been working pretty well for the company, with 71 percent of smart speaker customers in the USA buying Echo devices", reports eMarketer". The main Echo device is now on sale for $150, while a smaller Echo Dot goes for $50.

Amazon Echo Show is priced at $229.99.
