Keep in touch with mom courtesy of the Echo Show 15. Amazon's largest Alexa-powered smart display packs a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 display, dual 1.6-inch speakers, and a 5MP camera. It can be mounted on a wall or displayed on a compatible stand (not included). 

Amazon's latest smart display is its biggest one yet. The Echo Show 15 packs a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 display, dual 1.6-inch speakers, and a 5MP camera. It can be mounted on a wall or displayed on a compatible stand (not included). 

In our Echo Show 15 review, we named it the best smart display for wall mounting. Unlike its smaller counterparts, the Echo Show 15 acts more like a smart home control center than a speaker, prioritizing screen size and interface over audio and video quality.

When placed in a high-traffic area in your home — such as the kitchen — the Echo Show 15 doubles as a digital destination for family members to interact, leave notes for each other, and more. Each family member can set up their own profile with a visual ID, so when they walk by, they'll see customized communication options and information relevant to their day. 

The new smart display also introduces widgets like sticky notes, to-do lists and dedicated smart home controls, letting you open a feed from your Ring doorbell easily, for example.
