Amazon’s Alexa is a smart assistant that is now available for tablets. This step was made by Amazon but it is only available if the tablets are made by Amazon. Amazon’s Alexa is going to be a free app for the tablet Fire made by Amazon. This table is only $49 and comes in 2 sizes 8-inch and 10-inch.
Compared to the Echo speakers that can hear you from across the room when you call Alexa, on the Fire Tablet, you need to press on the virtual home button to start using Alexa. After that, you can ask your personal assistant anything you like and she will answer.
A new feature will be available soon for tablets. Amazon’s Alexa is going to show the information in the form of cards. Not every app or skill will have cards, but when you ask Alexa to set a timer or to make a reservation a card will appear. This is a great news for online shoppers because Alexa can re-order anything and you can just tap the information card if you don’t like the option and do it yourself.
The step that Amazon’s Alexa has made brings the digital assistant on the same page that Google, Microsoft, and Apple have put their digital assistant. The fact that Alexa is now available on a mobile device is a great development for Amazon. Of course, when Amazon was asked whether or not Alexa is going to be available on other OS systems they executives say that they don’t have any information about this.
Another great feature that Amazon has is that you can connect Alexa with the Echo speakers. This means that if you have Echo speakers you can call Alexa with their help and then see her answer on your tablet. The Fire table can now act like a dashboard for the speakers and show text card on your tablet despite the fact that you “called “ the digital assistant with the Echo speakers. The 2 devices don’t need to be connected to make this happen, they just need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi and all the processing is happening on the cloud.
