Amazon Unveils Echo Show 15: A 15 Inch Wall-Mounted Digital Picture Frame

September 29, 2021

Amazon has launched its latest smart display called Amazon Echo Show 15 at its invite-only Devices and Services event on Tuesday. It is the largest smart display ever launched by Amazon. In fact, it is more like a mini-TV or a laptop screen with a 15-inch display. Also, the Echo Show 15 looks entirely different from its predecessors. The latest model has given up the gigantic speakers that were attached to the display of Echo Show 10. On the contrary, the display comes with very thin borders, just like the ones you see on a smart TV. Since the device is intended to be on your wall, it also acts as a convenient entertainment device – especially for your kitchen wall.

Depending on the space available on your wall, the Amazon Echo Show 15 can either be placed vertically or horizontally. The gadget can play movies from Prime Video, play music, control all the smart devices that are attached to the device and as a digital note board. Which means that you can use it as an alternative to your kitchen calendar to add notes, leave messages for your family members and make shopping lists.

The device also acts as a digital calendar and keeps track of your routines, schedules and highlights the important events in your life. It also features picture-in-picture live camera viewing, which enables you to keep an eye over your family while you are out.

Talking about the device, Tom Taylor, senior vice president, Amazon Alexa said, “Echo Show 15 brings everything that makes your household tick into one place. With a redesigned home screen and Alexa widgets, you can customize Echo Show 15 to see your shared family calendar, manage to-do lists and reminders, find meal inspiration, and keep track of your incoming packages. Plus, Echo Show 15 can adapt to your home environment with full-screen photos or art, so it’s always there when you need it, but fades beautifully into the background when you don’t.”

The Amazon Echo Show 15 comes with a Visual ID feature that recognizes the users enrolled in the system. Alexa will display a custom greeting, personal reminders, notes, recently played music or calendar events personalized for each user. If you enroll your child in the system, Alexa will ensure that it only displays age-appropriate content. To know more about the visual ID feature and how it works, visit the Amazon Science Blog.

Amazon Echo Show 15 has been launched at a price of $249 currently. It is available in black color and will go on sale in the US, later this year. Amazon has not yet announced when the device will be launched globally.
