If you are a Fire tablet owner, all you need to do is tap the home button and ask Alexa to make a call for you.

The Amazon Alexa app not only offers Echo product owners the ability to make and receive calls or messages, but it provides additional functions for the Echo devices. However, that has now been updated to include even more devices that can make calls to Echo speakers. Well you could do that before, but now you can talk to them through their Amazon-brand speaker if you really want to. On the Fire HD 10, voice calling and messaging can be accessed simply by talking to Alexa.

Amazon's digital assistant, Alexa, who, thanks to her artificial intelligence, answers questions and receives orders from users, shows unusual symptoms - which refer to parapsychological thrillers - as she suddenly starts without a reason to laugh in a frightening way it can freeze the blood. And for everyone else, you'll have to open the Alexa app. Once updated, they'll need to "verify their mobile number" and "import their contacts". Canada, Mexico, and the United States are now the only countries that have this new feature available as well.

There is another feature we wanted to tell you about on this app as well, which is called Drop-In. Off by default, both parties will need to approve the feature on a contact-by-contact basis.
