Amazon Echo Show 10 users can now make Zoom calls from their devices, and calls can even be joined automatically so they never miss a meeting.
Zoom now supports Amazon Echo Show 10, putting the device to a new level. Video conferencing software is already an immensely popular and important communication tool, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been available on the Amazon Echo Show 8 launched in 2019 since last December, but the third-generation Echo Show 10 launched in February of this year.
Zoom announced last summer that it would be available through smart display apps, including the Echo Show, Nest Hub, and the Facebook Portal. Previously, users could use the Zoom app on their mobile devices, or the Zoom client on computers, or some other specialized Zoom apps. Meanwhile, Amazon Echo devices offer a wide range of uses, partly through a variety of Alexa skills. Echo Show devices also allow people to make video calls, and a new group video calling feature was introduced to Echo devices last December.
The edge reports that Zoom is now also compatible with the Echo Show 10. To join a meeting, users can simply use a voice command such as “Alexa, join my Zoom meeting.” People who have integrated their calendars with Alexa can automatically join any scheduled meeting. Since the newer Echo Show 10 features a screen that rotates to track user movement, this feature is likely to be compatible with Zoom as well.
Why Zoom On The Echo Show Is So Helpful
Video conferencing apps like Zoom were used more than ever in 2020 as people depended on them for both work and personal use. Although organizations are beginning to move back to the traditional office, they are unlikely to ever leave remote work altogether again. As such, Zoom meetings will undoubtedly remain ubiquitous now in the world of work, while Zoom has also proven useful for online classes and simply keeping in touch with friends and family. Making Zoom compatible with the Echo Show 10 simply combines one useful tool with another.
The third-generation Echo Show 10 features a 10.1-inch HD touchscreen, an updated speaker system, and a 13-megapixel camera, making it a great device for video calling already. Automatically joining Zoom meetings can also be helpful as it helps mitigate the risk of missing important meetings. Being able to join a meeting with a voice command also allows users to have their hands free for other tasks. Overall, whether people use this feature for work, school, or just hanging out with friends, the availability of Zoom on the Echo Show 10 provides more communication options for people and further extends the reach of Zoom.
