Amazon today announced Echo Show 15, a 15.6-inch, 1080p Full HD smart display, powered by Alexa. Echo Show 15 comes with Amazon AZ2 Neural Edge processor, a redesigned home screen with more customization features, new personalization features with visual ID, and several new Alexa experiences.
Visual ID enables Alexa to recognize you and personalize the information displayed. If you walk in front of Echo Show 15, Alexa will recognize you and the screen will automatically update to show you a custom greeting, your personal reminders, calendar events, recently played music, or personal notes from others in your home.
