You Can Now Use Amazon’s Alexa From Your iPhone
Amazon’s voice-based digital assistant, Alexa, is now available through Apple mobile devices.
The retail giant has embedded Alexa into its iOS app, Amazon said Thursday. People with Amazon’s (amzn) app on their iPhone and iPads can use their voices to ask Alexa questions, check the weather, and order batteries directly from Amazon’s online store.
Amazon did not say when its Android app would incorporate Alexa.
Previously, people could use some of Alexa’s capabilities on their iPhones through several third-party vendors. But those apps didn’t have all of Alexa’s features like Amazon’s music streaming service.
