If you plan on getting friends and family together for the Super Bowl, whether it’s in person or over video call, theis just the virtual assistant you need. And now you can save $30 on it at Amazon. While the Amazon Echo Show 8 is listed at $130, Amazon is selling it for only $100 right now. We’ve seen it drop as low as $80 in the past, but now is still a great time to snag one if you’ll need it soon.
The Echo Show 8 can show you the game hands-free; just ask Alexa. That way, you can keep the game playing in the kitchen when you’re grabbing snacks. Or, you can make video calls to anyone who has the Alexa app or an Echo Show device, so you can comment on the game together. Without changing the channel, you can even ask Alexa to check the score on other games. And if you have smart home elements (like lightbulbs that can change to your team’s colors), you’ll be able to control them hands-free with the Echo Show 8.
The Echo Show 8 has many useful features outside of Super Bowl Sunday as well, of course. You can ask it to show you your schedule, show you the news, or play music. You can even cook with the complimentary Food Network Kitchen Premium subscription, which will show you step-by-step recipes. And when dinner’s ready, you can make announcements to other Alexa devices or drop in on another family member who also has an Echo Show. When you’re not using the Echo Show 8 for productivity or entertainment, you can use it to display your photos in a digital picture frame. Plus, you’re in control of your privacy; just press a button to turn off the microphones and camera or slide the shutter closed to cover the camera.
