a blog Post In the US, Amazon said that this new show-mode supports several Alexa features. With this, you can do various topics like popular recipes, play games, set reminders, create to-do lists, have Alexa read favorite audiobooks from Audible, etc. In addition, users can also control many compatible devices through the laptop. To start Show Mode on a compatible computer, you have to say – “Alexa, open Show Mode” or click on the Show Mode button in the Alexa app on your laptop.
The company said in a blog post that with show-mode’s ‘set it and forget it’ Alexa experience, users can now talk to Alexa on a bigger screen. For this you do not need to come in front of the laptop or go near your phone every time.
Currently, in India, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, the UK, and the US, this show-mode will be available on select Alexa compatible models such as Lenovo Yoga, IdeaPad, and ThinkPad PCs. All of them operate on Windows 10.
Lenovo first announced Show Mode at CES 2021, where it was said that the feature would come first in the Yoga Slim 9i, Yoga 9i, Yoga 7i, Yoga AIO 7 and IdeaPad 5 series. To get a hassle-free experience, Lenovo advises its users that the devices remain unlocked with the lid open and support far-field mic. Amazon said the company is now looking to expand the range of compatibility and show-mode will soon be available on other computer models by the end of the year.
