Android and iOS setup includes extra steps.
You can now use Amazon's Alexa voice assistant to place free video and voice calls to other Alexa users on tablets. The application is widely available for all the platforms and you can easily install it from a respective App Store and Play Store for iOS and Android devices respectively. Since Alexa recognizes your voice, when you say, "Alexa, call Mom", Alexa will call your mom.
Previously, anyone wanting to make calls or send messages needed an Echo device like the Echo Show or Echo Spot. All you have to do is to ask Alexa to get in touch; but that only applies to the Fire HD 10. Just go to the Apps menu from a respective Tablet and launch the Alexa app.More news: Here's Why PS4 and Xbox Players Can't Play Fortnite Together
But if you are seriously creeped out by it - you could unplug the device until Amazon releases the fix for the glitch. Canada, Mexico, and the United States are now the only countries that have this new feature available as well.
What's more, Amazon's Drop In feature, which basically serves as a quick intercom feature, also works with tablets. You can easily make voice and video calls to any connected devices without disturbing the other one.More news: 'Black Panther,' 4 weeks in, tops 'A Wrinkle in Time'
