Can Echo Show video call iPhone? Using the Echo Show’s video capabilities, you can connect with friends and family without a phone. First, install the Amazon Alexa app on your iPhone. Go to Settings > General > Contacts. Select the contact you wish to speak to. Tap the video call icon. Your Echo Show will appear on the screen. If you want to end the call, simply press the red “End Call” button.
Alternatively, you can use the built-in web browser to video chat with friends. If you’re not sure where to start, Microsoft Teams offers a web-based video chat platform. The Echo Show devices also feature a Bing and Firefox app. Both of these services make video calls easy and fun. Depending on your needs, you might even be able to connect with friends who don’t have Echo Shows.
The Drop In feature allows you to ‘drop in’ to another Echo device. You can turn this feature on or off. Make sure to choose the Only My Household setting if you want the Drop In feature to be restricted to devices in other rooms. This option makes the Echo Show system look more like a visual intercom. However, this is not a stand-alone video call device, so you should use it sparingly.
Before you can use the Echo Show video feature, you need to make sure you have an iOS device with video calling capabilities. Apple users have to install the Alexa app on their device in order to use it with the Echo Show. However, the smart display will not allow you to use FaceTime while using an Echo Show video call. You must have an iPhone to be able to use this feature. And the Amazon Echo Show device needs to be updated in order to support video calling with iPhone.
