And today, the online retailer unveiled its latest voice-activated, Alexa-powered appliance, the Echo Show. The Echo Show has the same basic capabilities as the regular, voice-only Echo (like setting timers and listening to music), however the built-in display adds plenty of new functionalities to the device.

Some may roll their eyes at the idea of having yet another screen in their homes, but Amazon appears to be building up a product line of Echo devices catering to different use cases.

Amazon says that Alexa can now finally also show you things, thanks to the Echo Show's display.
