It's delightful to see your favorite photos displayed on your Echo Show home screen

There are so many reasons I love my Echo Show, but one of the most surprising is that it doubles as a digital photo frame.

Easily make your favorite photo the home screen of your Echo Show (fastest option)

Open the Alexa app > tap "Devices" in the bottom navigation bar > tap "Echo & Alexa" and select your Echo Show device > scroll down to tap "Home Screen Background" > select photo from your smartphone > tap the "Upload" button. (Note that it may take a few minutes before the photo appears.)

Alexa can also display a slideshow of your favorite Facebook album on the home screen

First, give Alexa access to Facebook:  Open the Alexa app > tap the hamburger icon in the upper left corner > tap "Settings" > scroll down to tap "Photos" > tap "Link account" next to Facebook > follow simple prompts.

To start up a photo slideshow on your Echo Show: Swipe down from the top of your Echo Show screen > tap "Settings" > tap "Home Screen" > tap "Background" > tap "Facebook" (wait a minute for it to load your albums) > select the album(s) you want to display in the slideshow!

Pro Tip: If you have the all-new Echo Show 5, follow the steps in this post to display a slideshow of Facebook album photos (it's a little different from the Echo Show steps).

If you use Amazon Photos, that works too

Just follow the same steps under "To start up a photo slideshow" above (except select "Amazon Photos" instead of "Facebook")!
