Amazon Alexa on Tablets Can Now Place Video and Voice Calls

The new benefit is another way Amazon is working to connect Alexa, the voice assistant operating Echo speakers, to as many of its services as possible.

AMAZON'S Alexa has promised to fix a bug which is causing the personal assistant device to make "evil" laughing noises. The feature was initially available on the company's own Echo-branded devices but not anymore. For Fire tablet owners, the process is even easier - instead of opening the app, you can speak your device's Alexa wake word to initiate a call.

Meanwhile, Roger Federer was also asked about Serena's comeback, and said that it could turn into the tennis story of the year. It definitely felt better than the first round, but I'm still a little rusty. "Then I wouldn't be who I am", Serena said.

As reported by Engadget, Amazon is bringing Alexa calling (including video calls) and messaging to tablets. Since Alexa recognizes your voice, when you say, "Alexa, call Mom", Alexa will call your mom.

Thankfully, Amazon has realized this issue and introduced a new feature called Follow-Up Mode, which makes Alexa listen for a couple of seconds after she has finished speaking. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast.

Amazon has said said on the record: "We're aware of this and working to fix it". Canada, Mexico, and the United States are now the only countries that have this new feature available as well.

According to Cnet.com Amazon has given Alexa the most useful, and the most sensible update. Once you have the app installed on your iOS or Android device, using simple voice commands can allow you to call or text.
