Your echo show is a device that the whole family can share, which means you’ll want to make sure everyone can see and hear it. Here’s how to adjust your brightness settings, turn off adaptive brightness, and change the alarm volume.

Change brightness

Changing the brightness on the Echo Show is the easiest. Swipe down from the top of the screen to see a collection of keyboard shortcuts. Swipe the brightness slider left and right to adjust the brightness level.

Echo Show also automatically adjusts its own brightness based on the lighting in the room. This feature is called «adaptive brightness». Basically, when you adjust the brightness, Echo Show will try to maintain that brightness level relative to the light in the room, even if it changes the brightness of the screen. Most modern smartphones use the same feature. This is useful so you don’t have to manually adjust the brightness when the sun goes down.

However, your echo show lives indoors, so you may not want it to change brightness just because you turned on the lamp. If you want to disable adaptive brightness, swipe down from the top of the screen and tap Settings.

Scroll down the list and click Show.

Scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap the Adaptive brightness switch. Now the Echo Show will stay at the same brightness level even if the lighting in the room changes.

Adjust the volume

Next, we’ll look at how to change the volume levels. There are two types of volume levels in an echo show. One for media like movie trailers or YouTube videos and the other for timers, alarms and notifications. The volume buttons at the top of the Echo Show control media volume, but you can dive into the Settings menu to adjust each one individually.

To do this, open the «Settings» menu again, scroll down and click «Sounds».

On this page, you will see a slider for each volume. Slide the one labeled «Alarm, timer and notification volume» to increase or decrease the volume. You can also adjust the media volume while you’re here.

Since the volume buttons at the top only change the media volume, you’ll have to come back here any time you want to change the alarm volume.
