You can now use Alexa to text messages
    2018-02-07  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

So much for needing your phone to send text messages. Thanks to a new software update, you can now use Alexa to deliver SMS text messages to any phone.

There are some caveats*, however. It only works for Alexa users in the United States with an Android device that also have the Alexa app installed. You also can’t use the feature to text 911 or participate in group text messages. Don’t try to send your friend your favorite emoji, either, as the feature doesn’t support those characters just yet.

There’s no word yet from Amazon on whether iOS users will be able to text using Alexa.

To send a text, first make sure you have the latest version of the Alexa app. Then navigate to the Alexa app and select the “Conversations” tab, which is located next to the home button.

Tap the “My Profile” button and make sure the “Send SMS” feature is turned on.

One important detail to note: By asking Alexa to send a message, it will deliver a message through the Alexa app, and only to contacts that have an Echo speaker.

Instead, if you ask Alexa to send a text, it will go straight to sending SMS messages.

The recipient must already be a contact in your phone’s contact list.(SD-Agencies)
