Up until recently Amazon Alexa had only been available on Amazon devices, the first third party Alexa device launched recently and now it looks like Alexa will also be taking on Apple’s Siri on the iPhone.
Lexis is a new app for Apple’s iPhone that brings Amazon’s Alexa voice activated assistant to Apple devices.
Lexi is a smart personal assistant powered by Alexa Voice Services. Lexi listens as you speak, and then replies through the speaker or headphones connected to your iPhone or iPod touch.
Try out Alexa Voice Services before you purchase an Echo. Use Lexi as a remote for your Smart Devices when away from home. Test your Skills as you develop them.
