The Amazon Echo Show 8 comes with an angle shaped design with a fabric-wrapped base that makes it resemble a speaker from the rear. It also comes with a smart display’s power port, micro USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the rear.

At the front also sits a 1MP camera along with the physical shutter that you can slide shut if you’re privacy-conscious. It also comes with two other buttons beside it, for adjusting the volume.

Above all, the device is designed to protect your privacy. It electronically disconnects the microphones and camera with the press of a button. You can also slide the built-in cover to close the camera.


The Amazon Echo Show 8 comes with an 8-inch display and 1280 x 800 resolution which is better than the Echo Show 5. It also offers adaptive brightness, which means it automatically adjusts to ambient light, although you can adjust the brightness manually by simply sliding downwards from the top of the screen to reveal the slider.

Smart Features

The Amazon Echo Show 8 comes with Alexa digital assistant to help you control your smart home devices, including your smart lights, smart security cameras, and smart locks with your voice.

You can also ask Alexa to show you TV programs, films, or the news. As well as listen to radio stations, podcasts, and audiobooks.

The device is also Bluetooth-enabled, so you can pair it with your phone or tablet and play tunes you’ve got saved in a library on your handheld device.

Audio and Camera Quality

The Amazon Echo Show 8 only has a 1MP front-facing camera, hence, you can call almost anyone hands free, including UK mobile and residential numbers, other Echo devices and the Alexa app.

You can also link Alexa with your EE and Vodafone UK mobile phone account to ask Alexa to make and answer your mobile calls.

It also comes with two-speakers with a passive bass radiator, making video calls and video binges sound better than ever.


Amazon Echo Show 8 like Alexa and Echo devices is built with multiple layers of privacy protection. Hence, you can turn off the mics and camera with the press of a button, or slide the built-in cover to easily close the camera. You also have control over your voice recordings.

Other Features

Echo Show 8 comes ready to connect to your Wi-Fi. The Alexa App is compatible with Fire OS, Android, and iOS devices, and also accessible via your web browser.

Amazon Wi-Fi’s simple setup enables customers to connect smart devices to their Wi-Fi network in a few easy steps. You can also enable the VoiceView screen reader to navigate the screen and hear feedback about the items you select.
