Amazon Alexa Calling and Messaging Expands to iPads, Android Tablets

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

For other Alexa-enabled Fire tablets, you are simply required to tap the home button first, while other users are required to open the Alexa app.

Apart from Amazon's Fire Tablets, for other platforms such as iOS and Android, users have to do the same thing by visiting the Amazon's Alexa app from their respective devices. For everyone else, you'll need to go to the Alexa app to place a call.

The blue light on your Echo, according to CNET, will light up whenever Alexa is listening to a Follow-Up-Mode question.

The new benefit is another way Amazon is working to connect Alexa, the voice assistant operating Echo speakers, to as many of its services as possible. Since Alexa recognizes your voice, when you say, "Alexa, call Mom", Alexa will call your mom.

So from now on, you can keep in touch with basically anyone who has the Alexa app installed on their device.

Also, there are other limitations such as needing to have an Echo if you would like to call mobile or landline numbers.

Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace: Premier League highlights and recap
Palace lie in the relegation zone, but a result against Antonio Conte's side will see them climb out of the drop. Up next for Chelsea and Conte is Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie.

Fortunately, you will also have a few more additional features which are essential for the users.

There is another feature we wanted to tell you about on this app as well, which is called Drop-In.

Amazon is expanding Alexa's abilities on your tablets by bringing new communication features. Provided you're on a pre-approved list of contacts that is.

You will be able to do this right from your tablet with this new Drop-In feature.

They added: "In rare circumstances, Alexa can mistakenly hear the phrase 'Alexa, laugh.' We are changing that phrase to be 'Alexa, can you laugh?' which is less likely to have false positives, and we are disabling the short utterance 'Alexa, laugh'". Are you excited that you can do everything over Wi-Fi and not waste your data?
