Amazon's new feature lets users remove the day's recordings by saying, "Alexa, delete everything I said today". As the name suggests, this new Echo Show 5 has a 5.5-inch display, which is almost half of what was on offer on the Echo Show.
From a privacy perspective, the Echo Show 5 includes a microphone/camera off button and a built-in camera shutter.
The device is equipped with a camera shutter - a first for any of Amazon's display speakers - that physically covers the camera while still letting users talk to the device.
The e-commerce giant had originally launched the Echo Show, a touchscreen device that allows video calling, in 2017.
The new Echo show comes in 2 colors, charcoal and sandstone, and will officially be released on June 26 in the U.S., United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.
Trump declares ‘case closed’ after Robert Mueller comments
The investigation ensnared dozens of people, including several top Trump advisers and a series of Russian nationals and companies. A senior White House official said "the White House was notified" on Tuesday night that Mueller might make a statement Wednesday.
'Simply say, "Alexa, delete everything I said today" and the respective recordings will be deleted, ' Amazon said. It's somewhat buried in the menus of the Alexa app and Amazon's website.
Like previous Echo Show devices, the Echo Show 5 is compatible with a range of smart home gadgets including the Arlo baby camera and Ring doorbell cameras.
Privacy-conscious homeowners can now ask Alexa to erase their voice command history thanks to a new feature that comes with the latest version of the company's smart speaker. Though its sole 4-watt speaker isn't as powerful as the Echo Show's two 10-watt drivers, we're reserving judgement until we've had one in our testing labs. That means you'll have to go into your Alexa Privacy settings page, review your voice history, and flip the toggle that says "Enable deletion by voice".
Prompts on how to use Amazon's Alexa personal assistant are seen in an Amazon "experience center" in Vallejo, California. For instance, on-screen controls are now available to interact with connected smart home devices, and users can also view smart home camera feeds and thermostats, access recently used devices, and manage smart devices by group.
"With Echo Show 5, we've made it even easier and affordable for customers to add a smart display to every room of their house".
