Zoom is Coming to Amazon Echo Show Smart Displays in 2020

The video chat service is adding Alexa-powered smart displays to its lineup

On August 19, Zoom announced it is coming to Amazon Echo Show devices in the coming months, along with Facebook Portal and Google Nest smart displays.

The video chat service has quickly gained popularity during COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) quarantines for professional video-conferencing. This move, however, appears to be positioning the app more as an at-home service for connecting socially with friends and family as quarantines continue to isolate people from loved ones.

"It's more important than ever to offer features like these to help people stay connected with their friends, family, and co-workers," said Brian Oliver, Alexa's director of communications. "We look forward to the launch of Zoom on Echo Show and to bringing another great video calling option to Alexa customers."
