Alexa Video Calling and Messaging Now Available on Tablets

Paranormal … Alexa – Amazon's digital assistant laughs and spreads fear to its users!

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. In order for this to work, you will need to have the Alexa app open so that it can work just like any other Echo-enabled device.

Amazon has announced steps to bring its Cloud Cam and Echo smart speakers closer together with Alexa voice control. The update requires you to download the new Alexa app, which begins rolling out today. Once you have the app installed on your iOS or Android device, using simple voice commands can allow you to call or text. For most people, this is a simple request, although some people might hesitate to grant these permissions. Alerts can also be sent when the camera recognizes a specific person so you could hypothetically get an alert when your kids walk in the door from school. However, that has now been updated to include even more devices that can make calls to Echo speakers. That meant you could use your Echo to call other Echos without having to pay anything.

When it comes to the limitations of this new feature on the app, the biggest drawback is that this is an Alexa-to-Alexa ability right now.

Alexa users could already receive calls simply through the Alexa app, so nothing's changed for receiving calls. You then have to verify your phone number and import your contacts.

Starting Tuesday, Echo users who haven't previously used Audible - Amazon's audiobook service - can listen to any single audiobook in Audible's library of over 180,000 best sellers, new releases and other titles.

The first cases were reported in "smart" loudspeakers that feature Alexa (which is on various devices) and from which the robotic laughs came out without cause, which in some users were reminiscent of a witch ... witch.
