This deal sees the massively popular video-calling smart device discounted by 44%.

Featuring a compact, 5.5-inch display and built-in Alexa, the Amazon Echo Show 5 is one of the most popular smart gadgets on the market. The sleek device allows users to “voice or video call friends and family with compatible Echo devices, the Alexa app or Skype.”

Aside from its calling capabilities, this device also serves as a streaming hub, allowing users to watch movies, news and TV shows. It also doubles as an output for other streaming methods, including music, radio and audiobooks.

Another popular Echo feature is the device’s ability to turn any living space into a “smart home,” thanks to its Ring Doorbell compatibility. The device can connect to compatible smart home devices, like the Ring and light bulbs, allowing users to see who is at their front doors or turn the lights on from anywhere in their homes.

For added privacy, the Echo Show 5 also has a built-in switch to easily allow users to cover the camera hole. The feature-packed gadget also boasts an ambient sunrise feature, alarm and timer integrations and an easy three-step setup. 

To set up the device, simply plug the Echo Show 5 into a wall outlet, connect to the internet and ask Alexa whatever you’d like.

With over 290,000 five-star ratings, the Echo Show 5 is one of the most highly-reviewed releases from Amazon’s device lineup — ever. One reviewer even said that the easy-to-use touchscreen makes it “a real winner” in their eyes.

“Everything is well done for the price. It gets easier to use each iteration,” the shopper wrote. “For me, the price is great. Everything works. Highly recommended.”

Many shoppers say the Echo Show 5 is their “favorite Echo device,” with one reviewer adding it’s the “best darn product for the home.”

However, the Amazon Echo Show 5 can only video call other Echo products or devices that have Alexa or Skype. While this could be a deal-breaker for some, few reviewers have voiced any issue with this.

This deal currently does not appear to have a specific ending date, so shop while supplies last
