The first thing you have to do is download Alexa onto your old tablet. Evidently, without the voice assistant that incorporates the Amazon Echo Show, you won't be able to get the most out of it. Luckily, it's available in the Google app store, so don't hesitate to install this solution to start taking advantage of your old tablet.

Step 2: Configure the device interface

Once you have Alexa installed on your tablet, you only need to configure the device interface. Although it is not mandatory, we recommend you to connect a Bluetooth speaker that you have in the same room and will be responsible for reproducing the sound, since the quality of your tablet speakers will not be exactly the best on the market.

To make the most of your 7-inch or 10-inch screen, ideally buy a lectern that allows you to hold the device in the same position as the Amazon Echo Show 5.

Step 3: Connect external microphone

Finally, although it is not essential, it is advisable to buy an external microphone. This will make it easier for the loudspeaker to detect your voice commands. Hence the idea of having a Bluetooth speaker. If you had it too close to the tablet, the sound would mask your voice commands, and in passing, you have the 3.5 mm output to use a microphone.

Don't you think you need such a long cable? You have this other option, with 1.5 meters of cable, for less than 8 euros. Really, a very simple way to turn any old tablet into an Amazon Echo Show 5.
