Customers can now make and receive calls from their Alexa devices
EE has joined forces with Amazon to allow pay monthly customers to make and receive calls hands-free on Alexa devices.
The feature had previously been reserved for Vodafone RED customers and was rolled out to audiences in the UK last summer.
EE customers’ smartphone and their Alexa devices will ring simultaneously when someone calls, giving customers the option to answer on either device.
EE director of partnerships, devices and business development Sharon Meadows said: “We’re always looking for ways to offer customers exciting new products and experiences, and by working with Amazon we’re enabling them to make and receive mobile calls hands-free on their Alexa devices for the first time.
“We’re creating one converged, smart network to keep our customers seamlessly connected to their friends, family and the things that matter most.”
