Android users can now tell Alexa to text someone

Don't be tempted to give your speakers amusing names- you'll regret later
When you ask Alexa to "send a message" she will try to send it via the Alexa app by default, before suggesting she sends a regular SMS if the recipient doesn't have the app installed. Every text you send via Alexa will also appear in your phone's text app. Anyway, from the Alexa app on your Android device, select the Conversations icon, then select Contacts, and select My Profile. You can send them to any SMS-supporting devices, including iPhones. Note, you will not send messages directly from the application.
If you do have an Alexa Show, instead of only hearing the updates, you'll also see the latest news and weather on your device. Maybe, Amazon will launch such features in the Indian market when it believes that Indian users are ready for using a smart speaker.
Except not quite everyone else, at the moment, because SMS message receipt only works for Android phones. Finally, toggle on the "Send SMS" option.
Alexa can now switch to a British accent, as well as, German. In the ad, Amazon's solution to their Alexa woes is to replace her with celebrities donning customer service headsets and helping users out themselves.
Keep in mind that asking Alexa to "send a message" will not send a SMS.
According to Amazon's support page for the feature users will first have to set up the new feature on the Amazon Alexa app for Android. This could mean that on Sunday we get a host of new voices in Echo devices. Amazon says that there's no extra charge for each message beyond the usual voice and data limits of your wireless plan.
