Always Listening Alexa for Your Android Phone

Having Alexa constantly listening for your voice commands is handy – and the longer you use Alexa and integrate the devices into your life, the more valuable it becomes.

There are a few Android handsets now that offer integrated Alexa voice services, but what if you could add that ability to any Android smartphone?

An app in the Google Play store is available that adds the ability for Alexa to be on constant alert for your needs. Called Listens for Alexa, the app allows you to enable always-on for Alexa from the launch screen, supports skills and smart home devices, and supports Android Wear.

There’s not a similar app for iPhones yet.
