but apparently video calling between two echo shows isn't really a thing. I can't find ANY credible information on how to make this happen. There is some information on setting it up through the 'communicate' icon in the alexa app, but that icon doesn't exist!! Technically I shouldn't need a phone to do this because the advertising says this "Connect with video calling and messaging - Call friends and family who have the Alexa app, an Echo device with a screen, or Skype. Make announcements to other devices in your home." If someone can tell me how to make this work, I'd give it 5 stars. At the moment, it DOES NOT DO WHAT IS ADVERTISED.
