As TechCrunchhighlights, getting set up to send SMS messages with Alexa requires a small bit of prep. Once you toggle on the feature in the Amazon Alexa app on your Androidphone (there's now no iOS option), you'll have the option to send SMS messages using just your voice.
In 2017, Amazon added the "make and receive a phone call" and "send messages" features to Alexa. However, you will not be able to work with this feature using third-party Alexa speakers. However, by switching over to SMS, you can send texts to anyone in your contacts. Any texts you send will show up in your smartphone's text app.
A user just needs to say "Alexa, text X", and then dictate the message.
Just days before the Apple HomePod goes on sale with the ability to send iMessages with Siri, Amazon has made sending text messages possible with Alexa. The Amazon AlexaSuper Bowl campaign will continue with supporting 30-second spots featuring Leslie Jones, JB Smoove and Rebel Wilson.
However, there is a catch: Messaging through Alexa is now only available for Android users in the US.
Electronic commerce and cloud computing giant Amazon on Wednesday announced the launch of a new messaging feature for Alexa devices in the United States. According to Amazon, Alexa will "find the best way to send the message" to the recipient, who must be in the contact list of the sender. The feature is available only to the US users right now, but I am expecting a broader roll-out in the coming months.
Keep in mind that asking Alexa to "send a message" will not send a SMS. In the commercial, the stars replace Amazon's smart assistant Alexa when she loses her voice. However, at that point, the feature was only available for Alexa's ecosystem, and not other devices outside of it. You can make phone calls to other Echo devices or most regular phone numbers in Canada, the US and Mexico.
