You Can Now Broadcast Messages Across Amazon Echos with Alexa

Voice triggering can now be enjoyed on your Fire HD 8 and Fire 7.

"In order to do this, you need to change the 'Tablet ESP Behavior" in the Alexa app's settings. Once the latest software update rolls out to the devices, you'll be able to use Alexa's full array of voice commands whenever the tablet's display is turned on.

Amazon Key debuted late a year ago in select markets as a suite of features centered around in-home delivery for Prime members, and now all of its functionalities except for in-home delivery itself are available nationwide, the company said Thursday.

The usual Alexa skills like playing music, answering queries, controlling smart home devices, and ordering an Uber all apply. If either one of these two tablets is plugged in, the screen doesn't have to be on for you to ask Alexa to do something for you. Just swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the Alexa Hands-Free icon in the quick actions menu, or tap the Settings icon, tap Alexa, then tap the switch for Hands-Free Mode.

Amazon says the Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Spot, and Echo Look are the supported devices at launch. The speakers aren't as good as a full-sized Echo, and tablets don't have the mic array you'd find on an Echo, either. Amazon calls such products "an example of how Alexa can be integrated into products already found in the home" and has high hopes they will take off in the not too distant feature.
