The Amazon Echo Spot is a useful technical device that is able to do many wondrous features.

That’s the Settings menu.
Scroll down a little until you find the “ Home & Clock” option.
Give that a tap as well.
Right on top, you’ll see the “Theme” section.
That’s where you need to go, to practically modify your clock aspect.
Three options will appear before your very eyes.
Analog – that’s the all-time classic, with the moving clock hands.
Digital- the modern option with the shiny numbers
Both Analog and Digital each have six different clock faces to choose from. Just be careful when you tap on one of them, to swipe right or left. In that way, you’ll be able to browse all your possibilities. When you find the one that speaks to you the most, tap on the checkmark at the top and you’re all set.
The third option that’s available is the one that offers the highest level of customization possible. And that’s “Personal Photo”. Things are a little tricky with this one so bear with it.
