Amazon Introduces Alexa Group Calling Ahead of Holiday Season
To help families and friends stay connected this holiday season and beyond, Amazon has today announced a new Group Calling feature, which allows up to seven friends or family members to join an Alexa Group call.
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.
