Amazon Echo devices can now make Skype calls

Video chat was always known to be one of Echo Show and Spot’s largest selling points. But until now, the products have been tied along with own software of Amazon. This week, however, the company also took another big step in its ongoing relationship with Microsoft by introducing Skype calling to mix.

Now just almost every Echo device from the past and present are being able to make calls using this well known platform. Your Echo/Plus/Dot, et al. will also be able to make calls using a command like, “Alexa Skype Mom.” Echos which have displays, meanwhile, will be offering full video Skype experience. Users can also go ahead and ask Alexa to call a phone number via Skype.

It can be called as a solid partnership for the two companies. Amazon could actually use better chat support and Microsoft hasn’t made much progress further with Cortana-enabled devices. This can be noted as a blow for Facebook, whose Portal devices are made almost completely around the idea to offer a standalone home product for video chat. It’s known to be practically only best app on Facebook’s offering as of now.

For setting up the feature you can use the Alexa mobile app.
