Amazon is Adding Alexa Calling to Android, iOS, and FireOS Tablets

Using one of these combined with the Alexa Destiny 2 skill, which is also a thing, you can equip different weapons, ask for backup and a handful of other in-game tie-in skills, all just using your voice. The Amazon Echo interactive speakers and visual display models previously only worked with one another to make and accept calls.

You'll need the latest Alexa app, which is available for Android 5 and higher, and iOS 9 and later. Placing a call is a simple as calling out for Alexa and speaking a contact name.

Users will find it very easy to access this feature on Amazon's own tablets like the Fire HD 10 where it's as easy as commanding Alexa to contact someone.

So from now on, you can keep in touch with basically anyone who has the Alexa app installed on their device. The company first added the ability to actually use the personal assistant using the app back in January, and today's update brings a key feature to tablets.
