No dislikes. My wife has MS and AI is not just a fancy pile of gadgets, it's a real work saver for anyone disabled. it adds yet another step to our home entertainment, a big thing for us as we are limited in a few ways.
Alexa mostly displays something different than what is being requested. You must be tech savvy to set up devices. My Ring video doorbell works, but I must still walk up to the unit to activate the mic, easier to use my phone which is closer at hand. Overall, not user friendly and poor setup guidance available. What is working well, is the camera following your every move and the system listening in to your conversation.
An excellent design for video calls with family members. The camera is far superior to my Echo Show 8 and the motion feature is just awesome. I’m very disappointed with only one aspect. I purchased this item to act as a digital photo frame when not in use (10” is so great for this) BUT the device fails to load and display my Amazon Photos. I have them working fine on my Echo Show 8 but even after spending 1 hour on the phone with tech support they could not fix this bug. I hope someone provides a fix for this soon!!
I have an Echo Dot and was planning on upgrading that to the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) however it does not do what I need. I want to be able to search the web on my iPhone, iPad or Mac and send links to the Echo Show. I don't want to be limited to the few skills that access the web or to typing in long URLs to Firefox. It would also be really good if you could send it a recipe and have it display the print version which just includes the ingredients and instructions.
This review is specifically for the previous generation of the Echo Show 10 but still pertains to the software running on this hardware device.
Amazon, within the past couple of months, introduced the "Alexa For Your Day" feature/screen. The "Alexa For Your Day" screen ruins the overall experience, which was mostly good for more than a year. As of now, there is no way to disable it and users are forced to have their devices display it. There has been a substantial negative response to the forced content; however, Amazon has yet to alter their policy. If it were an honest error/omission they would have already corrected it.
