Alexa Tip: Take a Selfie with Echo Show and Echo Spot

Amazon has updated the capabilities of the Echo Show and Echo Spot so that customers can use these devices to take selfies.

To take a single photo, say: “Alexa, take a photo

To take a photo that contains four pictures stitched together, say: “Alexa, take a four shot photo

When you ask Alexa to take a photo, the device opens and runs an onboard app called Photo Booth. This app takes control and gives you a three-second countdown so you can get ready with your pose or poses. Once the photos have been taken the device saves them to your Prime Photo storage account.

NOTE: Interestingly, when you ask Alexa to “open Photo Booth,” a slideshow of your Prime photos displays instead of opening the app.

Once the photo has been taken and the result displayed on the screen, you can swipe-right with your finger on the touchscreen to access stickers to add to the photos.
