Alexa of Amazon is soon to act as your home intercom system. Now you can deliver voice and videos to the rooms of your home by using the virtual assistant. Like, to talk to someone in another room, all you need is to say the name of the device in that room.
The Alexa app is receiving this new feature as an update and will be continued thereafter. This feature also lets you know the names of your Alexa-enabled devices. As for the intercom, only the users of Amazon Echo, Echo Show, and Echo Dot will be able to avail themselves.
While calling and messaging features debuted last month for Alexa, now you can use it to access the intercom feature outside of your home. The drop-in functionality is required to be enabled in Alexa for using the intercom.
Intercom for Alexa is released days before the unveiling of the Echo Show device.
