After the latest update to the Echo Show, the clock and temperature font is too small. An ideal solution would be to have options for different styles and font sizes for the time and temperature display on the home screen. Additionally, the option to display the date would be nice.
At the very least, please change the font back to the previous size, as soon as possible. I bought several of the Echo Shows for elderly relatives. The change in font size, with no option to increase it, has made this device useless to them for glancing at the time and temperature.
I use the Show as my clock (set to DND) next to my bed, the font was large enough to see without my glasses. This morning I woke up and could not see what time it was, so now i'll have to have both the show and a clock on my night stand?
Please allow us to change to font size.. at least back to the larger size.
Agreed!!!! I was immediately infuriated and called Amazon to complain. They’ve set up a case and are supposed to be trying to fix it. I gave them suggestions, you can add features to echo show but you need to put some options in the set up screen so I can choose what’s displayed and how it want to view it. I also suggested an option of taking the Alexa suggestions off the home screen. This is just as aggravating as when they chose to have echo reply with a chime instead of saying OK. I called and complained and they changed it back within a week.
I LOVE my Echo Show, but the clock display has always disappointed me, and now it’s even worse. I have the Echo Show in my bedroom and use it as an alarm clock and now the font is too small for me to see it. I actually like the options for the Echo Spot better because you can choose different clock styles, but I wanted the stereo speaker that the Show offers. It seems like a silly compromise considering the cost difference between the two models. Why clock style options for the Spot and not the Show? I really doesn’t make much sense to me.
Here’s another +1 agreement that the clock font needs to be bigger - back to what it was prior to this last software update. I know the moderator said it is a known issue that is being worked, I just hope they actually fix it.
I am having the same issue! I use it as my clock in my bedroom and I woke up and couldn’t see it without my glasses on! It’s now going to be useless for me if the option of changing the font is not given. My temperature, clock, and upcoming event schedule are all much too small for me to read now.
The size of clock is way to small. Needs to be fixed ASAP. If this anything like the reported problems with Echo Spot having icons permanently fixed to screen blocking view of cloud cam, it will not be a quick fix. I know because I have one. That has been going on for over a month with no fix.
Same here!! We were extremely irritated after the last update of the Echo SHOW! (Oct. 2018). Clock is now WAAAYYY TOOOO SMALL! PLEASE give us options Amazon!!! Let the users/owners of the Echo Show choose the SIZE and possibly even the font type, of the clock!!!!!!! For our family, the size WAS perfect and could be seen from quite far away and from our living room, kitchen, and hallway, without glasses and could be seen in any lighting.....BEFORE the update! NOT anymore! GLAD this is now a "known issue" at Amazon and HOPEFULLY they will fix it ASAP!!!!!!!! Simply giving us options would be great!! Suggestion: An easy way to achieve a different size clock could be to simply let us tap on the clock multiple times to enlarge it to various sizes... ie: two taps enlarges it by one size, three taps even larger, four taps...larger than that...etc..... Now wouldn't that be great/simple!? Yes! But that's just our opinion! JUST do SOMETHING Amazon, to enlarge our clock on the Show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (even just bringing back the OLD size/clock would suffice for us at this household!) Thanks!!!
