Amazon quietly updates its Echo Show 8 and Echo Show 5


Amazon’s Echo Sow line received an upgrade in the form of the new second gen Echo Show 8 and 5 models. The pair is joined by a special Kids Edition Echo Show 5. The big new addition on the Echo Show 8 is the 13MP camera with 110-degree field of view like on the Echo Show 10. It can follow your movements and help you stay centered during video calls. The Echo Show 5 gets an updated 2MP cam but skips out on the fancy follow mode of the Echo Show 8.

There’s an updated eight-core chipset on the Echo Show 8 as well a new software feature that detects when you enter a room to enter pre-determined user routines like turning on the lights or starting a connected smart home device. The design remains unchanged and rest of the core specs are identical to the outgoing Echo models.
