Facebook Reportedly Creating Echo Show Competitor

Facebook is said to be working on a smart speaker with a display that'll compete against Amazon's Echo Show, a fairly recent Alexa-based device. DigiTimes says the social network's Building 8 research group is working on a device with a 15-inch touchscreen panel.

No affirmative comment to support the claim was provided by Facebook. The report has even less support due to the lack of a voice assistant from the company.

Facebook also does not have a significant history or track record of success in the area of hardware.
