As well as announcing the new Amazon Echo Show, the company also announced a new feature for its existing Echo devices, Alexa Calling and Messaging.
The new Alexa Calling and Messaging feature will allow you to make voice calls using the Amazon Echo devices.
Alexa will let you know when someone is calling, and a green light ring will appear on your supported Echo device. You can ask Alexa to answer or ignore the call.
In addition to calling, you can use Alexa to easily send and receive messages. Just ask to send a message, then tell Alexa what you’d like to say and she’ll send it.
You’ll hear a chime when you have a new message, and a green light ring will appear on you device. You’ll also be notified in the Alexa App so you can stay in touch wherever you are.
