Amazon Brings Calling and Messaging to Alexa on Tablets

Amazon Brings Calling and Messaging to Alexa on Tablets

I knew from the very first time Alexa was launched into the market that the power assistant from Amazon will only get better. It's noted that previously, Echo speaker owners could use the call feature to make free calls or send messages to other Echo owners.

When asked about the issue, Amazon told The Verge that they were aware of the user reports and are already working on a fix, which would include changing some of the phrases that Alexa recognizes.

Alexa calling, the feature that lets users place voice and video calls from Alexa devices, like the Echo, is now coming to tablets. How easy it is depends on the device. Since Alexa recognizes your voice, when you say, "Alexa, call Mom", Alexa will call your mom.

With the Fire HD 10 you don't even need to touch the device to activate a call, simply ask "Alexa". In order for this to work, you will need to have the Alexa app open so that it can work just like any other Echo-enabled device.

Amazon has said said on the record: "We're aware of this and working to fix it".

The new feature is called Follow-Up Mode, and it has to be enabled by users before it can be used. This feature was also previously available mostly between Echo devices, rather than by using other technology items that weren't designed by Amazon. Once you have the app installed on your iOS or Android device, using simple voice commands can allow you to call or text.
