Okay, not a deal as such but for anyone unaware, you can now make calls and text through all echo devices... it's been available in America for a while now but just arrived in the UK with the release of the new echo devices. Apologies if already posted but I did look and can't see it.

Simply update tithe alexa app by following the link.

Thanks, wasn't sure where to post this 😁

Not sure I'd need it.

The link takes you to amazon's website which then asks you to download the Alexa app. And the app has not been updated.

Have you tried it?

Not yet, I'm at work and was planning to tonight... looked again and by the links it says it's rolling out over the next day or two.

Would think they would update the app before putting up the links though.

I deleted the app and downloaded it again but couldn't see any changes so will wait till the end of the week.

Be better if it could call mobiles
