Amazon announced Echo Show 8 International Version and the next generation of Echo Dot International Version and Echo Dot with Clock International Version are available to ship to customers in the Philippines, giving you more ways to bring the convenience of Alexa to every room of your home.
In the Philippines, customers can use Alexa in English to access local news and radio stations, local knowledge, and some of Alexa’s other most popular features including timers, alarms, weather, smart home, and Alexa-to-Alexa calling.
“We are thrilled to expand our portfolio of Echo devices in the Philippines with the addition of International Versions of Echo Show 8, the all-new Echo Dot, and Echo Dot with Clock. Alexa is there to simplify your day-to-day life when you need it. With the new sensors and technology built into Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock, customers can have Alexa do even more on their behalf,” said Eric Saarnio, Vice President, Amazon Devices International.
“With Echo Show 8, we focused on creating experiences that would add even more value to our customers—bringing a powerful camera and digital pan and zoom capabilities, plus the ability to securely access the built-in camera to check in on home when you’re away.”
Echo Show 8—Featuring a 13-megapixel, wide-angle camera that keeps you centered in frame
The Echo Show 8 has a vibrant 8-inch HD screen with an adaptive color display; a powerful, 13-megapixel camera with a built-in camera cover; an octa-core processor; and dual stereo speakers for clear, balanced sound. It also allows you to make video calls via Alexa and turn your home screen into a digital gallery via Amazon Photos.
With dual stereo speakers and an HD display, Echo Show 8 delivers an immersive entertainment experience. Simply ask Alexa to browse shows or films from streaming services like Prime Video and Netflix or play your favorite music from services like Spotify. Alexa can show you playlist or station recommendations based on the song playing, making it easier to discover your next favorite artist or song.
Manage your smart home by controlling compatible devices like light bulbs, plugs, and camera using the interactive display or your voice. You can also monitor your home anytime using the Echo Show 8 from the Alexa app or other Echo Show devices.
With a new range of more proactive features, Alexa can save you time and energy with Routine. Turn on the lights or check the weather with this feature to start your day. It also lets you automatically power off compatible devices or recognize certain sounds to automate a series of actions. For example, you can create a Routine that gradually turns on your bedroom light when Alexa detects the sound of your baby crying.
New Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock—Even Better Audio, New Temperature Sensor, Tap Gesture Controls, and Upgraded LED Display
The all-new Echo Dot International Version and Echo Dot with Clock International Version are the most powerful yet. The redesigned audio architecture features a custom full-range driver and the highest excursion speaker of any Echo Dot, delivering clear vocals and up to double the bass of the previous generation—all within the same compact form.
Echo Dot International Version and Echo Dot with Clock International Version have new sensors that enable more contextual Alexa experiences. The new generation’s accelerometer also enables tap gesture controls, so you can simply tap the top of the device to pause and resume music, dismiss timers, or end a call.
Echo Dot with Clock International Version features a 5×21 LED high-density dot technology, offering a more vibrant and dynamic way to see information at a glance. In addition to the time, you can view the weather, calendar event times, and more.
