Amazon adds voice control to its Alexa iOS app

  Amazon adds voice control to its Alexa iOS app Amazon announced today that its Alexa iOS app will finally support voice control, so you can interact with Echo devices and other smart home products through an iPhone or iPad by issuing spoken commands. Now, with the tap of a button from within the Alexa app on iOS, you’ll be able to ask Amazon’s assistant for music playback, smart home controls, web queries, and other compatible Alexa skills. Unlike on Android, where you’ve been able to set Alexa as the default voice assistant since May, Apple’s operating system is more locked down. So that means you can’t use Alexa as a replacement for Siri.
