Amazon just introduced a brand new Echo Show 5 that will cost you less than $90.

The more compact model can do everything its big brother does, and it’s ideal for desks and bedside tables. You can preorder yours today ahead of its launch in June.

No, this isn’t the fifth Echo Show. The name Echo Show 5 is obviously based on the size of the new smart speaker’s screen. It measures 5.5 inches, making it smaller than the pricier model.

But that doesn’t mean you miss out on features. The Echo Show 5 does everything you would expect from an Echo Show, but it fits almost anywhere and costs a lot less.

Echo Show 5 does it all

That means you can use the speaker to watch videos, enjoy video calls, look at your photos, view album art when listening to music, see the weather forecast, read the news, and lots more.

Isn’t it cute?

There are more than 90,000 Alexa skills to take advantage of, and Amazon just added a brand new feature for those with privacy concerns. You can now ask Alexa to wipe your voice history from the last 24 hours simply by saying, “Alexa, delete everything I said today.”

Speaking of privacy, the Echo Show 5 features a physical camera shutter that lets you manually block its view if you’re worried about being spied on.

The Echo Show 5 is available in black or white and costs $89.99. You can preorder yours today through Amazon in the U.S., the U.K., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, and Spain, where the device will start shipping next month.

There’s also a magnetic stand that lets you tilt the Echo Show, priced at $19.99.
