Amazon Added a Good Slideshow Feature to the Echo Show

When it comes to exhibiting your photos, Google’s Nest Hub or a dedicated digital photo frame have always outperformed Amazon Echo Show smart displays. This is because Amazon clutters the screen with dubious beneficial information and alternates your gorgeous photographs with recommendations for the newest Alexa skills you would like to try, an egg salad recipe, or tidbits of news about tomatoes with duck-shaped seeds. However, starting of August 5th, you can now ask your Echo Show to display only your images for a full three hours.

Users of Facebook Messenger must presently choose to encrypt their communications end-to-end, which supposedly limits access to a message’s contents to the sender and receiver. Facebook communications were already encrypted by default in June, so when Nebraska police requested a search order for the mother under investigation’s Facebook user data, Facebook would not have had any messages to provide over to authorities.

Importantly, this new Photo Frame option transforms into a slideshow of only photos by hiding all advertisements, calendar, and weather notifications. The only information that can be seen is a tiny dateline in the bottom right corner that indicates the album and the date the photo was shot. The Echo Show’s device settings in the Alexa app let you specify which albums the Photo Frame mode will utilise. Daily Memories, This Day, Favorites, Recents, and more selections that draw from your Amazon Photos account are available when you scroll down to Photo Display. Additionally, you may link your Facebook account here and upload photos taken with your iPad or smartphone.

Without having to recall a specific album name or seeing the same pictures over, Photo Frame makes it simple to begin a slideshow. No matter how many of the over 30 homescreen content options you turn off in the device’s settings, it’s still nicer to see your photos displayed on an Echo Show than on the standard homescreen, where a large clock takes up a quarter of the image and occasionally interrupts the flow with an ad for an Alexa service.
