Amazon’s Echo Show smart display has numerous advantages. It is a fantastic device that will keep you entertained whilst you go about your daily activities at home. The Echo Show allows you to stream shows, movies, and music from streaming services such as Netflix and Spotify—these platforms provide access to thousands of movies, shows, and songs. For example, to stream movies from Netflix, all you have to do is sign in to your Netflix account on your Amazon Echo Show device. We’ll show you how to do just that in this article.
How to Use Your Amazon Echo Show’s Screen to Watch Netflix Movies and Shows
You can access and sign in to your Netflix account, as well as watch shows and movies, with a few taps on the screen of your Amazon Echo Show. Here’s how it works:
Activate your Echo Show device and swipe to the left (from the right edge) of the screen. This will display a list of available shortcuts. However, for some Echo Show generations, you may have to swipe down from the top of the screen to reveal the shortcuts.
Then, from the list that appears, select Video.
Then, from the list of available streaming services, select Netflix. Netflix comes pre-installed on the majority of Amazon Echo Show devices, so you won’t have to download the app first.
Then, enter the login information into your Netflix account, and you’ll have instant access to all Netflix shows and movies.
How to Watch Netflix on Your Amazon Echo Show Using Your Voice
One advantage of using an Alexa-enabled Amazon smart device is the ability to control it with your voice. You can use Alexa on your Echo Show to access Netflix and sign in to your account without touching the screen. Here’s how it works:
Plug in your Echo Show device, connect it to the internet, and tell Alexa to open Netflix.
You can then log in to your Netflix account to watch shows and movies once Netflix is open on your screen.
After signing in to Netflix on your Echo Show device, you can use your voice to search for movies, play, pause, and rewind them. You can also use your voice to adjust the volume. Simply put,
“Alexa, open Netflix and search for The Harder They Fall.”
“Alexa, take a breather.”
“Alexa, please rewind 10 seconds,” for example.
“Alexa, lower the volume.”
Finally, Netflix is pre-installed on the majority of Amazon Echo Show smart displays, including the Echo Show (2nd generation), Echo Show 5 (all generations), Echo Show 8 (all generations), and the Echo Show 10 (all generations) (3rd generation).
