Amazon now allows you to use Alexa to make phone calls and video calls and send messages on tablets, so you no longer need an Echo to talk to other Alexa users. The compatible tablets include Android tablets, iPads and Amazon Fire tablets, as Engadget discovered.
To set it up on the Fire HD 10 tablet in hands-free mode, just ask Alexa to make a call. On other Fire tablets that do not yet have hands-free mode, first tap the start button and then ask Alexa to make a call. On all other devices, just open the Alexa application, go to Conversations, select a contact and press Call.
Alexa users can now receive calls simply through the Alexa application, so nothing has changed to receive calls. Amazon's Drop In feature allows you to connect tablets and other Echo devices in the home, so now your tablets can be flat, wide walkie-talkies.
