    I was considering trying one of these, do either of the built in web browsers fully support Material Skin?

    I’ve never tried tbh as I just use voice to control LMS and listen on the Show itself. I’ll try it tomorrow and update. Bedtime now...

    It can be swiped up:



    I’m surprised how quick this browser actually is - never used it before but on the 10.1” screen it’s very usable.

    The Echo Show itself. Using the MediaServer Alexa skill, you can stream audio from LMS to any Amazon Echo device.

    Good tip, didn't spot that.

    However, after a couple of minutes of inactivity the screen goes to the home screen with no obvious way back.

    Also opening silk browser cuts off the bluetooth connection, seems it can't multitask!
