A simple way to go back to normal times?

Display your favorite photos on your Echo Show!

It's truly delightful to see a rotating slideshow of happy photos of the people we love. And it's super easy to display them on your Echo Show so you can enjoy them every time you glance over at it throughout the day.

Alexa lets you display your favorite Facebook or Amazon Photos album or pick a single photo from your phone's photo library as the background. I'll start with the Facebook set-up...

How to display a slideshow of your favorite Facebook album:

  1. Open the Alexa app
  2. Tap the hamburger icon in the upper left corner
  3. Tap "Settings"
  4. Scroll down to tap "Photos"
  5. Tap "Link account" next to Facebook, and follow simple prompts to give Alexa access to your Facebook photos
  6. To display the photo slideshow, swipe down from the top of your Echo Show's home screen
  7. Tap "Settings"
  8. Tap "Wallpaper & Clock" (For Echo Show 5, tap "Home & Clock" and then "Clock" > tap "Personal Photos" > tap "Background")
  9. Select "Facebook" and tap "Change" to pick your album(s)!

How to display a slideshow of your favorite Amazon Photos album: 

  1. Follow steps #6 - 8
  2. Tap "Amazon Photos"
  3. Select the album(s) you want to display in the slideshow!
