There is also no way to disable the Alexa calling service once the service has been configured with a user's phone number.

Echo Show has a 7-inch display, weighs 2.5 pounds, offers dual 2-inch stereo speakers powered by Dolby and sports a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The basic features are available across all, but there are also specific ones that will only work on certain devices.

To maintain an edge over its competitors, the company launched free voice calling through the use of the Echo and Echo Dot speakers, or the Alexa app.

Mashable's reviewer touts it as "Amazon's most disruptive product" and a futuristic device that will "change everything." Why? Rival Google Home speaker has 24 percent of the market. The users from America is almost 36 million.They will use this device at least once in a month by year's end.
