The feature that lets users place voice and video calls from Alexa devices like Echo speaker, is now available on tablets. Amazon introduced Alexa calling and messaging feature in May 2017, a free-to-use feature that lets users of Alexa app and owners of Amazon Echo make and receive calls and messages. Today, Amazon has announced the feature to tablets including iPads, Android tablets, and of course its own Fire tablets.

Alexa calling and voice messages on the Fire HD 10, will be available hands-free and can take action just on voice control. It doesn’t have a home button just like on the Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 or older generation Fire tablets. Alexa app, as was restricted by Amazon to smartphones at launch, is now available for the tablets and can avail features too as it will support Drop In feature that lets you use Alexa devices as an intercom system, where you can instantly connect with other devices around your home, and other’s at home as well.

To enable the calling and messaging feature you’ll need the latest version of the Alexa app with verified phone numbers and imported contacts. The added support for voice calls and messaging is the latest example of Amazon’s Alexa app as for how it is becoming more than a utility for managing the settings on Echo devices.

The latest calling support is available in the latest version of the Alexa iOS and Android application and you can call anyone in your contacts list for free until you have the Alexa app installed on your smartphone or tablet.
