You Can Now Make Alexa Calls From Tablets

Paranormal … Alexa – Amazon's digital assistant laughs and spreads fear to its users!

They include not only the Apple iPad tablets but also Android and Amazon Fire tablets. Otherwise, both smart speakers do have Amazon Alexa built-in, which allows you to ask Alexa to do a number of things, like finding out the weather, what's on your calendar, and even controlling your smart home.

You will no longer need to be around your Echo Speaker to make free calls and messages with Alexa.

As mentioned, the only item needed on a capable tablet to make calls or send messages to Echo devices is the Alexa app. Obviously you can't make a video call to a regular Echo, but that should be obvious seeing as how it doesn't have a camera. They can simply download the Alexa app on their tablet and get in touch with fellow Alexa users regardless of the device they own.

To enable this new set of features, users will need the newest version of the Alexa app.

You: "Alexa, turn off the lights". Canada, Mexico, and the United States are now the only countries that have this new feature available as well. For some people, this might be more of a hassle than it is worth, but other people will love taking advantage of the new feature. This new feature will be available on all tablets, including iOS and Android. Provided you're on a pre-approved list of contacts that is. Once the Alexa app is open, the feature should work the same as if the device were any other Amazon Echo-enabled device. Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
