Just like the original Echo Show, the Echo Show 5 also has a 1 MP front-facing camera, which can be used to make video calls using Alexa or Skype with supported devices. As a security feature, the device also has a one press camera kill feature, where, if you press the camera button once, the camera will go offline and one needs to press the button physically to re-activate the camera.

Additionally, one can also monitor their children's activity from a remote place using the drop-in feature.
