The Alexa app provides the ability to send both text and voice messages to other Echo owners that are part of your contacts list. Here’s some tips for things you can do.
Sending Text Messages
- With the app open, select the Conversations icon at the bottom of the screen.
- Start a new message by selecting the New Conversations icon and then selecting a contact from your address book.
- Selecting the text field opens the onscreen keyboard so you can type your message (like a normal text message) and use the Send icon to send it.
Getting a Text Message
Alternatively, if you have existing conversations, you can just respond to those by selecting a thread from the conversation list. New messages are highlighted with a green dot.
