“Last year, we introduced Alexa hands-free on the Fire HD 10 and
customers are loving it—in fact, the Fire HD 10 is now our highest-rated
Fire tablet,” said
Using the Show Mode Charging Dock, just ask Alexa to show you a recipe, set a timer, and then announce that dinner’s ready through other Echo devices in your home—all hands-free. You can also ask Alexa to start a video call with friends and family, watch a movie or TV show, play your flash briefing or Audible book on your Fire tablet while in the Show Mode Charging Dock; or if you want to move to a different room—just grab the tablet and go.
You can also use Show Mode to play your favorite music. Just ask Alexa to play a song, station, or genre and Show Mode displays the song lyrics on your tablet screen. For even richer audio sound, connect your Fire tablet to an external speaker via Bluetooth.
The Show Mode Charging Dock design is small enough to fit on a kitchen counter, nightstand, or desk and is easy to use for wire-free charging. It comes with a case and adjustable stand—just place your Fire tablet in the case and drop it into the stand; magnets on the case will guide the tablet into position for charging while the stand holds your Fire tablet at an adjustable angle for easy viewing.
