Amazon Echo Show devices finally get a digital photo frame feature
Wait, it didn’t have one before?
That is, unless you bought the expensive Echo Show 15 because it was a feature on that device.
The new update rolled out on August 5 (h/t The Verge), so you probably have it on your Echo Show device by now.
You can say “Alexa, start Photo Frame” to start it, and it’ll show you three hours of your Amazon Photos, Facebook photos, or stock images.
We’re not quite sure why anyone would want three hours of stock images, but maybe it’s some kind of demo mode.
The best part about the Photo Frame feature? It doesn’t show the usual assortment of widgets, notifications, and other Amazon-leaning information.
All you see on the pictures is a tiny piece of text that says when the photo was taken, and also which album it’s from.

The Echo Show is a great range of digital displays, with the ever-eager-to-please Alexa voice assistant baked in. Now it’s also a great range of photo frames. For three hours at a time.
At least, if you live in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, or Australia. Those are the countries that have the new Photo Frame feature. Everyone else has to suffer through Amazon ads or other distractions.
