This works for customers within the US, and provided that you’ve acquired an Alexa-powered speaker related to an Android gadget on which you’re signed into your Amazon account. Right here’s the way to set it up and ship your first message by way of Alexa:
Launch the Alexa app, and join Alexa Calling & Messaging.
Faucet the Conversations button, and choose ‘Contacts., then ‘My Profile.’
Allow “Ship an SMS” and settle for the Android OS permission request.
Invoke Alexa with a voice command to your speaker and say, “Ship an SMS to (contact title).”
