Alexa is now available on Amazon’s main shopping app for iOS



Amazon has just made it’s virtual Assistant available to a much wider audience as the company has now updated its iOS app with Alexa. Yes, users can now talk to Alexa on their iPhones on the go and get things done. The company has made it official and it certainly does make a lot of sense since you always have your smartphone. And with this move, the company now has a wider user base for Alexa.

According to the source, Alexa will be able to talk to you and just like any other voice assistants, it will be able to do a lot more than just deal with your amazon account. Just as you would use Siri or Google Assistant, now you can use Alexa to chit-chat or get some info like weather updates, reminders, etc. Apart from this, Alexa can also play music, control your home appliances (IoT devices), etc. However the list doesn’t end there and you can pretty much use Alexa for anything and use over 10,000 skills that are available.

Talking about the limitations, according to the company, users won’t be able to use the door lock feature just yet. This feature allows users to open door locks with their voice. This API was made available last month and it looks like users will have to wait for this feature to work on their iPhone. However, uninstalling the main Alexa app might be a bad idea now since it still is required to change default settings, etc.

With that said, it is good to see that Amazon is trying make things less complicated by making unified apps. We hope that the settings will also be baked in the future updates, allowing users to control and manage everything from the main shopping app itself. Also, if you are wondering if iPhone is the only app to get Alexa, then it is worth noting that Huawei also announced the voice service for the Mate 9 smartphone in the U.S. With that said, let us know what do you think about this by dropping a comment down below and also be sure to stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info on this.
