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.

The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation. McEntee managed to keep a low profile in a campaign and White House often embroiled in controversy.

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.
