Sending and Receiving Voice Messages Using Alexa Devices

Amazon has rolled out messaging to Amazon devices and those using the Amazon Alexa app, allowing Alexa owners to connect directly.

Sending a Voice Message

  1. Say… “Alexa, send a message to [contact name].”
  2. Alexa will ask you to confirm the name, and once you do, she will ask you for the message.
  3. Once you are finished dictating your message, Alexa send the message.


Listening to Voice Messages

  1. When you have received a message, the ring on the Alexa device will flash green.
  2. Say… “Alexa, play my messages.”
  3. You can also say… “Alexa play message for [member name]” if you have multiple household members configured for your account.
