Most of the Echo Show users never fully explore all nifty features that come loaded in it. For instance, many of them may not know how to upload photos to Echo Show from Facebook or Google Photos. The process, however, is quite simple! All you must do is use the Echo device’s on-screen settings and start adding your personal photos or even use them as the background. See how this can be done!
Upload Photos to Echo Show to change its background
If you’d like to use a Facebook photo on Amazon Echo Show, the best way to do it is to use the Alexa app. Using it, you can easily upload photos to Echo Show.
How to link Facebook to Echo Show?
- Launch the Alexa app on your smartphone.
- Tap the Menu button (visible as 3 dashes at the top left)
- Choose Settings.
- Scroll down to Photos.
- Under Facebook, tap the Link account.
Connecting your Facebook account to Alexa first is important because, for a large majority of users, the chances of having a Facebook account are far greater than the chances of having Amazon Photos account. So, it’s probably a better idea to link Facebook to Echo Show.
Launch the Alexa app on your Smartphone, tap Menu, and choose Settings from the list of options displayed.
Next, scroll down to Photos and tap to open it.
When Prompted to Link your Facebook account, hit the Link button.
How to send photos to Alexa Show?
On your Echo device, swipe down from the top of the screen and select Settings.
Choose Wallpaper & Clock.
Next, gently tap Facebook option.
Choose the album you would like to send to Alexa.
Hit Save button when you’re done.
Hereafter, all your Facebook photos will be readily visible to anyone using your Amazon Echo Show. If you would like to hide specific Facebook photos from the album connected to your Echo Show, try moving them to a different album and set the privacy of that album to Only Me.
You can change the information you’re sharing any time or remove the app.
Simply hit the Edit Settings button.
Tap Alexa Photos and toggle the switch for ‘Your Photos‘ to ‘Off’ position.
Alternatively, scroll down to find the Remove button and when found, gently tap it to remove Alexa Photos account and activity.
