Alexa will soon be able to launch Android and iOS apps using voice commands

Amazon has indeed launched new development tools, including a function called Alexa for Apps, which allows you to manage Android and iOS applications via the assistant. This feature is currently only available in a preview version from some developers.

Amazon launches Alexa for Apps

Launched in 2014, Amazon’s personal assistant Alexa, developed by Lab126, was the first to break free from the shackles of smartphones and launch the trend of connected speakers.

In 2020, it was one of the most popular assistants, able to answer questions asked, play music, read audio books or even act as a home automation hub by coordinating the different devices of accommodation. But Alexa will come back in force on Android and iOS smartphones very soon.

Alexa for Apps already includes apps like TikTok , Uber, Yellow Pages, and Sonic.
