With a 8-inch display and Alexa built-in, the Echo Show 8 is built for your kitchen or living room where you want to be able to watch video or read recipes while speaking to the voice assistant. Now 

The Amazon Echo Show 8 was launched in September 2019, to complement the original 10-inch Echo Show and the smaller Echo Show 5.

At the time, Amazon claimed that its latest smart display combines the "crisp, powerful audio" of the 10-inch Echo Show, with the "camera shutter and sleek form factor" of the 5-inch Echo Show 5. 

While we haven't tested the 8-inch Show just yet, we were mightily impressed with its siblings thanks to their bright and responsive touch screens, and decent audio quality. 

Like an Amazon Echo smart speaker with a screen, the Echo Show is powered by voice assistant Alexa, which means you can ask it questions, use it to control your smart home gadgets, watch videos, and make video calls. 

Looking for something a little smaller (and cheaper)? The Echo Show 5 is also on sale right now, with a lovely £30 discount.
