Today Amazon released voice calling and messaging for Amazon Echo devices, in anticipation of next month's launch of the new Echo Show. Allison Sheridan from Podfeet joined Joe Dugandzic to have some fun testing out the new features and found some quirks, too!
Voice and messaging work between Echo devices, an Echo and the Alexa app, and even between Alexa apps for users who don't yet have an Echo device. (Not supported on Amazon Tap or iPad.)
