AT&T Customers Can Now Make and Receive Calls on Alexa Devices
When you link your AT&T account to your Alexa devices, you can dial numbers and call people saved in your contacts through voice alone.
The calling doesn’t have to be Alexa-to-Alexa; it makes the Echo more like a regular AT&T phone. When you link your AT&T account to your Alexa devices, you can dial numbers and call people saved in your contacts through voice alone.
Alexa will announce callers by saying, “Incoming call from X." Say "Alexa, answer" to accept. If you're not home or want to shush Alexa, select Away Mode in the Alexa app. You can also use Alexa routines to turn off calls at night.
AT&T customers should see a prompt to connect their accounts the next time they open the Alexa app. But if not, tap More on the bottom right and select Settings > Communication > AT&T and follow the on-screen instructoins.
Amazon first introduced this mobile-linkage feature overseas, with Vodafone OneNumber customers in the UK and Germany and EE customers in the UK. The Amazon-AT&T partnership rolled out on Wednesday in the US.
