We now have a closer look at how Alexa will look on the Echo Show screen

Thanks to an Amazon developers kit, we now have a good idea how Alexa will look on its new smart speaker/screen the Echo Show.

The developer kit has been released so that developers can start programming Display Cards for Alexa enabled devices, allowing Alexa to respond visually as well as vocally.

The kit has strict guidelines for the design of the Display Cards, meaning you get a uniform Alexa experience across all devices. This means that the Echo Show, when it launches next week in the US is going to look a lot like this:

Obviously there is the image reference for both tablet and TV in these pictures, so if you use an Amazon Fire Stick, you could soon see these pretty side bars pop up on your favorite shows (although why anyone would check their to-do list while watching Game Of Thrones is beyond us).

The Echo Show will be available from June 28th in the US and will retail at $230.

At present there is no official release date or price for other regions.
