Amazon Alexia Finally Implements Calling/Messaging

Simply the best thing Amazon has done with their Alexia line of products yet. You finally have your house intercom, hands free calling, and messaging feature! It is loaded with neat stuff and even notifies your phone which caught me by surprise. The key to all of this is actually the Alexa App on your phone, you don’t even need to have an Echo or a Dot! Although they do make the whole experience just that much better.

Try calling yourself to ring all of your Alexia enabled devices. For me I just said call Matt or call home and they all lit up like magic announcing the call waiting for the magic words, “Alexia Answer”

Thanks Amazon!

Pro tip: If you see a green light ring pulsing around your device it indicates you have a message, simply ask Alexa to play your messages. =)
