Alexa Can Now Send Texts: Here's How

Alexa Can Now Send Texts: Here's How

Once you have completed the process, you should toggle the Send an SMS button to deliver a text message. Once you toggle on the feature in the Amazon Alexa app on your Android phone (there's now no iOS option), you'll have the option to send SMS messages using just your voice. This requires a quick adjustment to the Alexa app on your phone. Once you pick someone who's in your Contacts within the Alexa app, you can recite your message. You can send them to any device that receives SMS, including iPhones. Note, you will not send messages directly from the application.

Here we have a spot from Amazon that presents a scenario in which Alexa suddenly loses her voice.

Amazon has quietly updated its Alexa assistant once again - this time, adding the ability to send SMS text messages.

You'll need to live in the USA and have an Android phone linked up to your Alexa account in order to take advantage of this feature. Also, at the moment, the service is only available to users in the US.

Carson Wentz not surprised Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl
The Eagles quarterback said Friday he tore the LCL as well as the ACL in his left knee late in a Week 14 win over the Rams. He threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.

Amazon is offering several interesting features in the United States with Alexa, but in India, the features are pretty limited.

Cardi B fills in for Alexa in a hilarious Super Bowl commercial that imagines what would happen if the Amazon device lost her voice.

As you can expect, the SMS integration only works for users with Android devices. Amazon is likely hoping the exposure will help it maintain strong Echo sales and fend off competition from Google and Apple. If not, Amazon will send a standard SMS instead.

Approach your Echo device, which should be powered on and connected to your local Wi-Fi, and say, "Send an SMS to [contact name]".
