The Echo Show 5 retains the familiar design of its predecessor, featuring a 5.5-inch screen suitable for watching news, video chatting, and monitoring visitors at your doorstep. Amazon claims that the third-generation Echo Show 5 is 20 percent faster than its second-generation counterpart. Furthermore, it boasts an upgraded speaker system that delivers enhanced bass compared to its previous iteration. Additionally, the device incorporates a redesigned microphone array for improved voice recognition.

Simultaneously, the Echo Show 5 Kids takes advantage of the new hardware and introduces a space-themed design along with a range of child-centric features. In addition to parental controls and the creative AI function called Create with Alexa, it offers kid-friendly responses, jokes, homework assistance, and explicit-lyric filtering. Moreover, the Kids variant comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, a service providing ad-free and age-appropriate audiobooks, games, videos, and Alexa skills.
