Whether you’re looking for your favorite playlist or need a quick joke, you can ask Alexa. Ask for a song, artist or genre, and stream directly over Wi-Fi. Alexa also provides voice control for Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more.
Calling and Messaging
Ask Alexa to call almost any local number, message your contacts, or video call friends and family who have a Fire tablet, Echo Spot, Echo Show, or have installed the iOS or Android Alexa App. You can also instantly connect with family and friends by asking Alexa to drop in on enabled Echo devices or Fire tablets, when the tablet is in Show Mode. For example, you can drop in to ask what time dinner will be ready, see the baby's nursery, or check in with a close relative. Learn more
Voice control your smart home
Alexa works with compatible devices such as smart cameras, lights, switches, thermostats and cooking tools from Arlo, Philips Hue, TP-Link, Ecobee, Rachio, GE Appliances, and more. Switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, change the temperature on your thermostat while reading in your favorite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie—just ask.
