The Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) was already a fantastic smart speaker capable of a wide range of tasks around the house. There’s not much this device can’t already do, from functioning as a smart home monitoring station to an entertainment hub. However, Amazon took the next obvious step in bringing the popular service to our homes by partnering with video conferencing giant Zoom.
Zoom on the Amazon Echo Show 10: How to Use It (3rd Gen)
From the Echo Show 10, Amazon has made it incredibly simple to start or join a Zoom meeting (3rd Gen). Simply ensure that the calendar on which your Zoom meetings are planned is linked to your Amazon account. Here’s how you can do it:
- On your smartphone, launch the Amazon Alexa app.
- At the bottom right of the screen, tap the More button.
- Select Settings.
- Scroll down to Calendar & Email and touch it.
- Go to Accounts and choose it.
- To add, a calendar to which your Zoom meetings are scheduled, tap Add Account.
That’s all there is to it — so simple! Simply ask Alexa to “attend my Zoom meeting” if you’ve synced your calendar to your Amazon account and Alexa app and have a Zoom meeting booked. You won’t have to recite or manually input a meeting ID or passcode because she’ll confirm the meeting title and connect you.
Users of the Echo Show have been able to make video calls with Alexa to other Echo Show owners or those using the Alexa app for some time, and Skype has also been an option. Owners can utilize Amazon’s Chime video enterprise video conferencing service in addition to Zoom, which is coming to the platform.
