Amazon has some of the best smart speakers, and the Echo Show devices make excellent Alexa speakers. The full-sized Echo Show 10 may be too big that it takes up valuable counter space, and the Echo Show 5 can be on the small side for specific tasks. So, with the announcement of the new Echo Show 8, it's a device that sits in that perfect "Goldilocks" zone of smart screened speakers — but does echo show 8 have a stand?

While Echo Show devices are made to stand on their own, getting the perfect angle for viewing or a video call can be made all the better with a stand. Whether placed on a desk, side table, or kitchen counter, getting a little bit of height and adjusting the screen's tilt can make all the difference in your viewing experience. For these cases, Amazon has introduced its own first-party stand to pair with your Echo Show 8.

Available in charcoal or white to match the Echo Show 8, the stand easily attaches and detaches to the base of the device with the help of magnets.

Are there non-Amazon options?

Perhaps you don't want to get the Amazon-branded Echo Show 8 stand, or perhaps you just want a different look or additional functionality. Luckily, there are already third-party stands available.

We found this interesting VMEI that looks to do a few things the Amazon stand cannot. For starters, it elevates your Echo Show 8 a little higher, and it has a wider angle of upward and downward tilt. Unlike Amazon's stand, you can rotate the Echo Show 8 with the VMEI metal stand a full 360 degrees around. It also features a sticky rubber coating on the bottom of the stand so that your Echo Show 8 stays securely in place.

Like the Amazon stand, the Echo Show 8 attaches magnetically to the base, and it is also available only in silver.
