Earlier this year, Amazon added calling and messaging features in Alexa devices in the USA. Now, the company has released the feature for the devices in the UK and Germany. Alexa’s voice calling feature will work on standard Echo or Echo Dot devices, and it allows Alexa-powered devices to call each other. You can also call Alexa devices using the Alexa app for iOS and Android.
Earlier the calling feature didn't support calling phone numbers. Now, along with the expansion of the feature, the company announced that now it is enabling calling any phone number in the US. It is not clear if the feature will make it up to the UK and Germany.
