Amazon has unveiled its latest expansion to the hands-free Echo range, the Echo Show. This latest release has similar features to the previous Echo devices, but adds one vital component — a touchscreen.

“Echo Show brings you everything you love about Alexa, and now she can show you things," Amazon says. "Watch video flash briefings and YouTube, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, and more. All hands-free — just ask.”

The most useful feature by far is the integrated video chat, as shown in the trailer above, but the device does have some limitations. When it drops, it will only be able to call other Echo users, or people who have downloaded the Echo app on their phone. Additionally, you can only make calls on speakerphone, so it perhaps isn't the ideal choice if you're looking for privacy.

The Echo Show will be available in the U.S. from late June, priced at $230 for a single device or two for $360.

In other news, Facebook’s original TV shows could be arriving next month.
