These days it seems like Alexa comes out with a new product every month. You can get pretty much anything powered by Alexa: Alexa for the car, headphones and Alexas in every room connected to each other.


I’m not going to lie, my family owns about four different Alexa products, but my favorite is the Amazon Alexa Show. It has all the classic features of the original Alexa, but with the addition of a screen. Adding a screen allows for more functions and easier access to different content online.


One of the best features is being able to listen to music with the lyrics displayed at the same time. I am one of those people who gets all the words wrong to a song because I can’t hear what they are saying. Now, with the Alexa Show, I can finally understand the lyrics to my favorite song.


Another great feature the screen adds to is the ability to watch videos. Watch your favorite artist’s brand-new music video, follow along with a make-up tutorial,or learn how to prepare a famous dish.


Amazon Shows come in different generations and vary in price. The newest one goes for about $80.
