Amazon Alexa calling can now be used on tablets

  • Now you can have a conversation with Alexa without screaming ‘Hey Alexa’ for every requestMore

The homage to the classic device is powered using an Amazon Fire HD tablet that is then joined by additional lights, speakers and software added by Master Replicas Group to give it the look of HAL.

Cast your minds back to the launch of Destiny 2 in September past year and, amongst the rabble of reviews and raids, you may remember that Amazon partnered with Bungie to produce an Alexa-enabled Bluetooth speaker that doubled as a little in-game Ghost replica.

Users will need to have supported Echo devices or the Alexa app in order to receive video or audio calls or Alexa messages.

Amazon has discounted its Echo Dot and Echo smart speakers, knocking $10 and $15 off of them, respectively.

Android and iOS setup includes extra steps.

This is something Amazon understands if their latest Alexa app feature is anything to go by.

To enable Follow-up Mode on your Alexa device, open the Alexa app and head to the settings. If you have a Fire 7, Fire HD 8 or older Fire tablet, you'll have to first press the home button to initiate a call or send a message. Amazon's Drop In feature lets you connect tablets and other Echo devices in the home, so now your tablets can be flat and wide walkie-talkies. Provided you're on a pre-approved list of contacts that is.

Previously, anyone wanting to make calls or send messages needed an Echo device like the Echo Show or Echo Spot. The feat is limited to the US, Mexico or Canada for now.
