Amazon announced at its big event in September that Netflix would come on its smart display and finally arrive in the United States a few days earlier.

Available on netflix Eco show 5, 8 and first and second generation Echo shows (with 10 inch screens). But this is not in the Echo Spot, which makes sense, as a circular screen is not ideal for video, although you can see many prime video programs and other sources.

If you ask Alexa at the Echo Spot, she will accidentally tell you that “this video service is not yet available on the Echo Show”.

Anyway, this is beside the point: the most popular (paid) streaming service its Available on your Echo Show.

Although YouTube has been added back to FireTV devices, there is still no official support for the Echo Show, so you will have to use a web browser for that specific video service.

Alexa can do more than just open Netflix. You can “ask for Alexa, show me action movies on Netflix” or ask her to make specific programs if you already know what you want to watch.

“Customers tell us that they love the convenience of Alexa and the ability to use their voice to browse and control content seen on eco shows and Fire TV” Said Heather Zorn, director of Alex Entertainment. “We are excited to add Netflix to our list of content providers at the Echo Show and to extend the convenience of Alexa to even more Netflix members.”

When you first start Netflix, you will need to log into your account.

Netflix will also be available in the next Echo Show 10 that we released before Christmas. That didn’t happen, not even in the US, which is strange, because Amazon said it would be before the end of the year. It may be that the motorized rotating mechanism is proving problematic.

Another video service that Amazon has promised to be available this year is Zoom, but it did not happen in the UK at least…. It is available in the United States, but our contact on Amazon stated that there is no news of when the Zoom will be available.

So, if you want to chat with family and friends during the festive period, you’ll have to settle for Alexa’s recently updated integrated calling features, so you can now group video calls in an Echo Echo show and group voice call with speakers).
