" ...  Having two of these products, I really would have liked to be able to communicate from one Echo Show to another or another Alexa device. ... I also have google devices to compare to and have found the Alexa devices much more "intelligent in nature" giving great responses.  ...  "
comment
" ...  My unit was easy to set up, using the Alexa app on my smartphone. ... We haven't been able to video chat yet (because the other party is unavailable) but the system is ready and Alexa always asks if I want to send a message and when I have recorded the message asks if I want to send it. ... I also use Alexa for making shopping lists and my Show (and Alexa) pick up all my additions (even when I sort of mumble).  ...  "
comment
" ...  I recently traded my Alexa Echo (first version) and purchased an new Alexa Echo Show. ... Not only the hardware is very well done, but the software is very intelligent. ... I noticed that while first installation the system was smart enough to find all information provided during previous installations of Echo devices that the system was able complete the installation of the Echo Show without requiring any additional info from me. ... Alexa seems smarted than before.  ...  "

" ...  Although the 2nd Generation doesn't provide any significant improvements in functionality from the 1st generation, the larger, higher-definition screen and improved sound are an asset for the things we use it for the most (listening to music and audio books, finding food recipes, answering the phone - using an Echo Connect).  ...  "
