Microsoft has announced that it will be releasing Skype calling to Amazon’s range of Alexa devices later this year.
You will be able to use devices like the new Alexa show to make a video cal using Skype and also other Alexa enabled devices from regular Skype calls.
We are excited to bring Skype calling to Alexa devices, so users can easily communicate with their friends and family from their Echo devices, simply using voice.
Users can make outgoing Skype voice and video calls, accept incoming Skype calls, and even make SkypeOut calls to most phone numbers around the world. For example, simply say, “Alexa, call Jimmy on Skype,” or if Jimmy is calling you on Skype, say, “Alexa, answer.”
