Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for. Amazon has finally decided to allow streaming platform Netflix to be played, in almost all models of Amazon Echo Show devices.
Here’s how to watch Netflix on Amazon screen-displays.
Now you can watch Netflix on Amazon!
Amazon screen-displays are one of the best devices of the brand. After all, these are meant to be used for binge-watching your favorite shows and movies.
Having a voice assistant Alexa to guide your watching experience is also a major plus. Despite its original function, a lot of Echo users still demanded one thing: Netflix.
Unfortunately, since Amazon has its Amazon Prime– which is a competitor of Netflix– the company refuses to allow Netflix on the device. But, not anymore.
Starting today, Dec. 16, Amazon Echo users can now access Netflix in selected models of the device, as first reported via AFTV News.
To access this feature, users can simply command saying, “Alexa, open Netflix.” This will instantly put the Echo devices on the Netflix platform.
After this, you can now watch your favorite Netflix movies and TV series, as much as you want.
Which shows can you watch on Amazon Echo Show?
Aside from Netflix and Amazon Prime, Echo users can also access other streaming platforms such as Hulu and Tubi.
This leaves out Youtube as the only streaming platform that cannot be used on Amazon devices.
Unfortunately, compared to Netflix, this might be an impossible thing to happen since Google and Amazon have a complicated relationship with each other.
AFTV News, however, warned that once Amazon Echo Show is connected to a Fire TV, the process of changing the platform to Netflix may not be simple.
The Netflix feature will be made available for all generations of Echo Show devices, from the first-gen down to the most recent Echo Show 8. The only exception on this feature is the Echo Spot, though it does not really affect much since the screen is too small on this device.
