Alexa Group Calling

Starting today, customers can use Alexa to join their family for a remote holiday celebration and make it easier for everyone to get involved in the conversation.

The new Alexa Group Calling feature lets friends and family members join a hands-free video or audio call from their Echo devices

Once a customer creates and names a group in their Alexa app, any member of that group can simply say, “Alexa, call my [group name]” to get a group call started.
