Amazon launches Alexa calling and messaging through tablets

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

How easy it is to make calls and send messages will largely depend on the device.

The app eliminates the need to own an Echo device if the only reason you're using Alexa is to stay in touch with someone who does own one.

Another user wrote: "I was lying down and was getting ready to sleep when Alexa made a very loud and thrilling laugh from my Amazon Echo speakers". The update requires you to download the new Alexa app, which begins rolling out today. If you still have a landline, this is going to be a sure way to get you away from your home phone and even off of your cell phone. You can easily make voice and video calls to any connected devices without disturbing the other one. On the Fire HD 10, voice calling and messaging can be accessed simply by talking to Alexa. Alerts can also be sent when the camera recognizes a specific person so you could hypothetically get an alert when your kids walk in the door from school. This is not something that has affected all Alexa devices, only a few, making people upload videos of the AI's laughter online. The icing on the cake is the fact that it costs just $30, which is the same price you'll pay for a single Alexa smart plug from a top brand. Once updated, they'll need to "verify their mobile number" and "import their contacts".
