Starting today, customers can use Alexa calling and messaging on Fire, Android, and iOS tablets. With this update, customers can use their tablet to place video and audio calls, or message anyone – for free by asking Alexa.
With your Fire HD 10, you’ll be able to place a call to Mom or send a quick voice message to a friend completely hands free by simply asking Alexa. Or, simply tap the home button on your Fire 7, Fire HD 8, or previous generation Fire tablet and ask Alexa to place a call or send a message. You can also enable Drop In for when you want to instantly connect with other Echo devices in your home from your tablet.
Android and iOS customers will simply need to open the Alexa app and then they can easily place calls, send messages or drop in on Echo devices throughout their home.
