Echo Show, Amazon’s smart hub, has a lot of interesting technology packed in. However, there are moments when you simply want to turn it off.
Here are a few methods to turn off your Echo Show screen, whether it’s at night or in the morning when you don’t want it so bright.
Turn off the screen with Echo Show.
“Alexa, turn off the screen” is the simplest method to entirely disable your Echo Show’s screen. Your Echo Show’s display will go completely dark until you either say her wake phrase or touch the screen again.
This command is quite useful, and I use it on a daily basis.
Nevertheless, there are occasions when you’ll want to take things a step further, particularly when you’re ready to go to sleep. Using the Do Not Disturb option is a great help in this situation.
Do Not Disturb, Alexa
In order to avoid being woken up by an alert on the Echo Show while you sleep, utilize the Do Not Disturb option.
Your Echo Display screen will darken to show just the clock, and all notifications for calls and texts will be immediately blocked when you say “Alexa, Do Not Disturb.”
Do Not Disturb may also be activated by sliding down on the screen and then clicking on it.
If you want the screen to go entirely black, there is a method to do that, even if the clock is still on the screen.
Go to Clock & Photo Display in Settings first. Toggle off the Ambient Clock, which is located at the bottom of the screen.
It’s done! After saying “Alexa, Do Not Disturb,” your Echo Show will go entirely dark and prevent any incoming notifications the next time you say “Alexa, Do not disturb.”
To reactivate your Echo Show, just say “wake” or touch the screen on the device. When you use her again, make sure to switch off Do Not Disturb mode to avoid missing any messages!
The brightness of the display may be adjusted.
If you don’t want to entirely turn off your Echo Show’s screen, there are a couple more options.
To adjust the brightness, just swipe down from the top of the screen. To darken the screen, just move the slider to the left, and to brighten it, simply drag it to the right.
The downside to this strategy is that you have to constantly adjust the brightness.
There are times when you’ll need to manually brighten up the screen, such as when it’s dark at night or in the morning.
The good news is that Amazon came up with an excellent solution called Adaptive Brightness.
As long as you go to Settings and go to Display & Brightness, you may turn on adaptive brightness.
Echo Show’s Adaptive Brightness intelligently changes the screen brightness depending on available ambient light.
You’ve undoubtedly also seen the Sunrise Effect when you were in the Display & Brightness menu.
The Sunrise Effect may be used to progressively increase the brightness of your Echo Show’s screen from 4:00am until 9:00am.
Another great feature of the Echo Show is that it gradually wakes you up so that you aren’t dazzled by it when you get out of bed in the morning.
A terrific gadget, but sometimes you don’t want to use the display at all, and that’s where the Echo Show comes in useful.
“Alexa, turn off the screen” is the quickest and simplest method to turn off the Echo Show’s screen.
The Echo Show’s display will go entirely dark when you provide this command. There are two ways you can turn it back on: you may either touch the screen or say the wake word.
“Alexa, do not disturb” may also be used to entirely turn off the screen by disabling the Ambient Clock first.
All incoming notifications will be automatically blocked if this option is selected. To avoid being awakened up during the nighttime, this is an excellent option.
Adjusting brightness is possible if you don’t want to turn the screen off altogether.
You may utilize the brightness slider on the screen by swiping down on it.
If you don’t want to manually adjust the brightness of your Echo Show every time you turn it on, there are two additional options that can do it for you, Adaptive Brightness and Sunrise Effect:
