How does motion work?

Echo Show 10 turns toward you when you say the wake word (like Alexa) and moves with you to keep its screen and camera in view. To choose whether the screen moves with you for all activities, for specific activities like videos and calling, or only when you ask, go to:
  1. Say, "Go to settings," or swipe down from the top of screen and select Settings
  2. Select Motion
  3. Select Motion Preferences

To approximate your location relative to the device and orient the screen, Echo Show 10 uses on-device processing to analyze microphone and camera inputs. No images or videos are sent to the cloud to provide the motion feature.

Motion Basics

After selecting its rotation range and idle position during setup, your device rotates back to the idle position when it isn't in use. To reconfigure the range and idle position after moving your device, go to:
  1. Say, "Go to settings," or swipe down from the top of screen and select Settings
  2. Select Motion
  3. Select Device Mapping & Idle Position
To control motion in the following ways:
  • Turn off motion:
    • Say "Turn off motion"
    • Swipe down from the top bezel and tap Motion
    • In the Alexa app
    Note: Motion will say Off until you turn it back On.
  • Turn off Follow during a particular activity (like while watching a video) by saying "Alexa, stop following". The device will pause motion until the end of that activity.
  • Closing the built-in camera shutter or press the mic/camera off button to disable motion and motion-related features.
