(Pocket-lint) - Amazon's Echo Show 10 is finally going on sale - four months after the original announcement. However, it's still a pre-order situation since the device won't be released until 25 February. 


The device has a significantly smaller bezel than the old Echo Show 10 but this time around there's an extra trick up its sleeve. Like Facebook's Portal, the video camera can follow your face for video calls. But unlike Portal, it'll physically rotate to follow you around the room. It's designed to be easy to use with calls in a kitchen or family room setting. 

You can also use it as a remote camera to check in on your home when you're out.

Echo Show devices were already compatible with Skype, but you can now use Zoom as well as Amazon's own Chime calling service in the US (Update: Amazon has been in touch to say this currently only works on Echo Show 8 in the US, but is "coming soon" to Echo Show 10 in the US too). Netflix support has also recently been added but the killer feature of YouTube support remains absent. 

The Echo Show 10 also adds a physical camera shutter button from the Echo Show 5 and Show 8. The device also supports Zigbee and has an Amazon Sidewalk hub, too. Amazon Sidewalk is currently only available in the US.
