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?

  1. Launch the Alexa app on your smartphone.
  2. Tap the Menu button (visible as 3 dashes at the top left)
  3. Choose Settings.
  4. Scroll down to Photos.
  5. 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.
