Customers in the UK and Germany can now also make Alexa-to-Alexa calls using either the Alexa app, an Amazon Echo, or an Echo Dot. This, unfortunately, does not include calling phone numbers, like has just become available in the US. After completing the setup process in the Alexa app, customers in the UK and Germany can use their Echo devices to call their contacts who also have Echo devices and who have also set up calling through the Alexa app.
It appears as though the feature is rolling out slowly and not all at ounce, so some UK and German customers still don’t have access to it.
Nope, not yet… the iOS app still hasn’t been updated.
Sorry. I guess it’s a slow rollout and not available to everyone at once.
Since I have no way to test/verify features outside of the US, I wrote this based on the fact that Amazon.co.uk just updated their Alexa help pages to include calling information.
Is it? Care to explain how to make it work then?
Zero research into your story
Sorry. I saw people commenting that it works so I checked amazon.co.uk and saw that all the documentation was now there for the feature so I assumed it was live. Being in the US, I have no way to test things like this. Seems like it’s a slow rollout.
Welcome to the world of “fake news” AFTV!
Confirmed…option to drop-in and other drop in settings not in IOS app, Nor WebApp nor Android for Layla.amazon.co.uk maybe next week or two perhaps….firmware is right tho, drop in and call are available from the echo but “First register in the Alexa App”….ala not yet
Nope, nothing here yet…
I got the latest android apk from the below link and can confirm it works.
I suspect when the echo show gets released in november is when theyll update the apps through official app stores.
Still no……..not in the UK certainly nothing additional with Layla.
When will this be available nothing on my Alexa app?
Sorry…there was an error…
Echo calling has been a shit show since it launched. I still can’t get echo to echo calling to work right. Don’t have high hopes for this either…
Still not working in the UK
has now available in new IOS app update 2.1.368.0 Tuesday Oct 3rd, allows voice calling and drop in. Have fun!!!
For iOS it looks like it’s iPhone only, no iPad. I haven’t seen this mentioned before. Can anyone confirm?
Alexa app has just been updated and I have to tried it.
So it has now launched here in the uk.
My ipad app just updated too so it’s now available on android and Apple devices.
Mine started working last night after I updated the Android app. I have to say it’s amazing. The ‘drop in’ intercom works exactly how I had hoped so we can talk rather than shout the kids down for dinner etc.
It works. Relax, people.
